Websites of the Day - Winter Holiday Ideas
It's tough to be any kind of teacher the week before December break. In special needs rooms chances are your attendance will spotty, no one will be able to focus (staff or kids) and some kind of party is in order (unless your school forbids it). Here are some websites with crafts, activities or other ideas for this week.
Class-Parties.Com lists party decorations, craft, activities and recipes.
DLTK has crafts, activity ideas and printables.
Enchanted Learning has more of the same as does Easy Child Crafts.
If you are looking for some free music for your parties or activities try I Love Wavs, for Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years music, not to mention a nice selection of pre-school/elementary music.
Finally there is Childfun.com and their subsidiary ColoringBookFun.com which have coloring sheets, crafts, activities, poems and songs. Although this is a much more ad heavy site than I normally would post, I am pointing it out because of a favor they are asking of their visitors. They are asking visitors to vote for Jenny W in the Worst Holiday Gift Contest, with the prize money to be split between two of the Childfun.com board member who have been diagnosed with cancer (breast and ovarian).
