Holiday Reads: ABC's of Christmas

 Inspired by Robert Sabuda's Christmas Alphabet, the kids wrote an acrostic poem using the word "Christmas."
The kids used books and our Holiday word wall to generate words that began with the specific letters in Christmas.   I loved how they worked together and helped each other find words on the word wall.  
 Another kindergarten teacher turned her poem into an accordion book where the kids illustrated their words - pretty cute!
Other other activity of the day dealt with alphabetic order.  The kids wrote the letters that come before and after a given letter.  It was a little tricky - alphabet cards came in handy.
