The Grinch

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am having a theme each day this week: Monday: How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Tuesday: Best Christmas Pageant Ever Thursday: Polar Express...I have lots of ideas and resources for Tuesday/Thursday, yet I am at a loss for Monday. Does anyone have any Grinch ideas or resources that they have made or used. They would be so helpful. Thanks in advance and I hope you and yours have a VERY Merry Christmas:-)

If you can locate green candy canes--I haven't seen them this year and used the ones that have red and green--this is fun to pass out.

of the book. It is filled with similes which are fun to identify, highlight, discuss and then sing. It is titled, Your a Mean One Mr. Grinch. You can also listen to a film clip of it from You Tube.

These are GREAT!
I wish I could use them! We aren't allowed to do anything related to Christmas. Everything has to be winter themed if themed at all. I am saving these things though...just in case. Great ideas!!

I never thought of doing this in 4th grade. This is my first year teaching 4th grade - I've taught kindergarten in the past. Looking forward to making this into a packet for the last day before vacation - thank you for the inspiration

I used your math problems after reading the Grinch. Hugely successful. A lot of interesting strategies observed. I had them do it in partners and heard much rich conversation and discussion of what would work and what wouldn't. I was braggin about it so much, the grade 5 teacher asked me to share. She did it and her class enjoyed as well. She shared with her husband, who teaches at another school. Thank you sooo much!
