    for December? Usually I do a 2 week Gingerbread unit, but most of them did that last year. I will do a Holidays Around the World Unit the last week before break. But I'm stuck on the next 2 weeks. I want it to be something fun so it will help keep their attention.

    Any cool ideas?

    I found a cute non-fiction reindeer unit on TPT that I'm basing some of my December planning around.

    I'm doing an author study on Jan Brett. She has wonderful Christmas/winter books.

    Thank you for those suggestions. I'm going to the library tomorrow to see what I can find for those themes. I hadn't thought about an author study-we haven't done too many of those, I think they'd like that.
