Christmas in the {Computer} Classroom


I have to admit…

I love my computer teaching job, but I always get sad around any type of holiday. I miss my 5th graders. I miss having my own group of students. I miss planning parties, getting student gifts ready, and doing fun Christmas crafts. 

Even though I'm not in a regular classroom setting anymore, it doesn't mean I can't have some holiday fun. I have found a few great ways to mix curriculum, technology, and the holidays into my lesson plans!



First of all, I made this Holidays Around the World Webquest for my students to do this year. I made it specifically for my 6th graders because they are studying world history. It's a great Internet research activity but also touches on the social studies curriculum. My students loved learning about the ways that different countries celebrate the holidays. {Read more HERE!}




Another way I'm adding Christmas into my classroom this year, is this fun, *new* Common Core aligned writing project! In our state (Utah!), all 5th graders take a persuasive writing assessment at the end of the year. As the computer teacher, I wanted to help our 5th grade teachers out by creating a fun project for my students to do in the lab with me. This will be *perfect* for my students because it will give them another dose of how to write an essay, help them work on their typing and word processing skills, and it will be a fun activity to do the week before we leave for Christmas break! I know my students will love writing letters to Santa persuading him to add their name to the "nice list" this year! {Read more HERE!}


After we finish our projects, we'll hopefully have time for some fun computer games. ABCYA.com is a great website to find educational games for kids. Here's a peek at some of their holiday games. 




My younger students will also be writing letters to Santa. They will type a friendly letter to Santa and will include their Christmas lists. They'll also have some time to do some Christmas-themed websites. Starfall.com is another great website for younger students. I like these Snowman and Gingerbread Man activities. 


I'm super excited for the fun week ahead. I know students will be a little SUPER crazy, but we are so close to the break, I can almost feel it! YAY!!



Just for fun, here's a picture of my new little baby meeting Santa for the first time!


Is there anything sweeter than a baby's 1st Christmas?! 
I can NOT wait to cuddle him and kiss those chubby cheeks all Christmas break!!

Because there's only a week left before the holiday break begins, I have discounted these Christmas items in my store



MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
