Christmasology & Holiday Figurative Language

We are taking a Thanksgiving Break from Root of the Day because it is time for.... CYBER MONDAY-plus Tuesday Sale!

It is time to shop till you drop!
We are excited to share a couple of fun holiday activities with you! Enter the code CMT12 for 28% off all items in our store!  Kick off the new year with a study of roots with our 
Reading Olympian or Reading Warriors 
root instruction programs! 

Holiday activities hot off the press...
As you may know our blog and many of the products in our store are based on teaching Greek and Latin roots (and stems).  The study of prefixes and suffixes are included in Common Core grades K-8. We have created a fun holiday activity to combine root instruction with Christmas cheer!  

The North Pole is in need of Christmasologists!  Students complete the activities to apply for jobs, create an invention to help Santa (such as an autohotcoca machine), and to help revise the North Pole Dictionary (define words such as subaquatic Santa).  The activities are geared towards any level of root knowledge and can even be used as an introduction into roots! There is a glossary of roots used for those students who have not participated in root instruction! 

Not all of our products are based on root instruction!
Have holiday fun with this Christmas themed figurative language pack!  Students find samples of figurative language in Christmas Carols.  After they identify metaphors, similes, etc...they create their own Christmas cards using figurative language!  There are two varieties of cards-one set includes the figurative language greeting and one does not include a greeting so students can create their own!
Students find samples of figurative language in the included  Christmas Carol lyrics.

Below are samples of the greeting cards!  These cards make great Christmas presents while still maintaining instruction through the holiday season!

   This Thanksgiving we are thankful to say that our products are created using the amazing graphics of Michelle Tsivgadellis. She is not only off the chart talented but helpful, supportive and kind!!
