December Lesson Plans & Links 🙂

Categories: Curriculum Ideas

Hope you all had a pumpkin pie and sweatpants filled Thanksgiving. Although I am sure none of you are even slightly thinking about work today, oh wait? You are? Don’t feel bad – I am too. I am a woman obsessed! Don’t be mad. Well whether you are still in turkey coma or are book marking this page – check out all of these adorable holiday freebies I am using in my language arts groups for December. There are some winter themed resources mixed in there for the non-Christmas schools. Enjoy and happy left over day 🙂

For some reference – these are my leveled language arts plans. I see 3 groups of students. The low level group is made up of 4 students with the assistance of a dedicated aide. Two of these students are nonverbal and two have emerging verbal skills. Many have IEP goals such as color identification, number identification, counting, following directions, expressive/receptive, etc. The mid level group is 3 students at a guided reading level between B-E. The high level group is made up of 7 students at a guided reading level between J-N. These students in the high group are split into two groups based on level for focused guided reading groups on specific days. Check out curriculum maps here.
