The 12 Days of Christmas: Holiday Break Countdown Ideas and Activities

It's (almost) the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are quickly approaching and I am not sure who is more excited, students or teachers! I truly enjoy the holidays in my classroom and spreading Christmas cheer. The countdown down to Christmas break and getting students excited about both their work (with holiday connections) and their upcoming break is simply the best. In order to keep things both engaging and festive, I have come up with a variety of Christmas writing activities to keep your students focused (the best a teacher can during this exciting time) during the last few weeks of classes leading up to the Christmas break!
