Workshop Wednesday: Seasonal Reading Activities - Ideas By Jivey: For the Classroom

Workshop Wednesday: Seasonal Reading Activities

It's Wednesday again!! Time to share our seasonal reading activities! How do you make this time of year less stressful and fun during reading time?

On Monday, I shared some fun Grinchy activities I am using this week...

I also read Trouble with Trolls for Mentor Sentences this week- we're working on quotation marks, adjectives, and adverbs with this book.
But then, of course, Jan Brett has the Christmas "sequel" to this book, Christmas Trolls. Had to squeeze that one in!!
We used one of my BBB Joanne's fun Christmas Reading Graphic Organizers to go with it- it was especially great because we talked about how the naughty list isn't forever- you can always turn your behavior around and make it to the nice list, just like Tig and Mig in the book!
See the arrows moving them to the "NICE" list? :o)

And of course, if you are in the mood for some fun Interactive Notebook activities, you can also check out my other BBB's, Collaboration Cuties, Christmas Interactive Notebook Activities!

There are so many more books that are my favorite, I could go on and on...

I shared with you some ideas for this one last week:
And then some of my all-time favorites:
And I have a super fun Santa unit on TPT for these two books:

Make sure to come back next week to share your seasonal writing activities!! But in the meantime...


  1. Jan Brett is awesome for every season! She has a great mailing list if you aren't already on it! I ended up using a lot of the stuff I got during the TpT sale during my Polar Express Pajama Day today. I linked up even though there was more than just reading today. It felt like a bunch of workshops! haha

  2. I love how you demonstrated character changes by moving from the naughty list to the nice list. Thank you for sharing all of these great books!

  3. I have been using Joanne's pack as well - thanks for the idea on using the naughty and nice list one! I loved your Grinch activities from the other day but this is my year for Polar Express - had to pin them for next year : )
    Thanks for hosting!

  4. Thanks for the shout out! I love that naughty and nice list! I need that Christmas Trolls book! Tell your student they did a great job and I love the arrows-super sweet!

  5. These are such great activities, I wish next week wasn't already packed with things to do. I will definitely be putting them on my to-do list for next year!
