This week we’ve been learning about holiday traditions and the differences between needs and wants during the holidays.  We started off by reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas and discussed how the Grinch learned that Christmas wasn’t about presents.  We made construction paper Grinchs and wrote how we would make the Grinch grin.

For social studies the next day, we watched a video on Brain Pop Jr about what a need is, what a want is, and their differences.  We sorted pictures into the two categories.  For art we made stockings, cut out pictures from magazines, and sorted them into needs and wants on the stockings.  You can get a Christmas Needs vs Wants freebie activity here.
