Category Archives: The Grinch

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.

 


We kicked off our Christmas theme by reading one of my favorite Christmas stories; How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  After we read the story we made our own Grinch, and wrote how we could make the Grinch grin.

We read one of my favorite Christmas stories to kick off our Christmas unit, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  We discussed the problem and solution of the story, created construction paper Grinches and wrote about how we would make the Grinch grin.

We read How the Grinch Stole Christmas and discuss the problem and solution of the story.  Then we discussed the problem and solution.  Then we brainstormed ways to make the Grinch grin and wrote about our ideas on handmade Grinches.

As part of our Dr. Seuss year long unit plan, we started our Christmas season by reading “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.  We will be performing a version of the story in our Christmas play!

After we read the story we brainstormed ways to make the grinch happy by using a web thinking map.  Then we created Grinch faces and wrote on ways that we can make him grin.
