Santa Claus and sight word-see

Its Christmas time again! Time to spread cheer and joy and indulge in lots of sweet goodies :)
Well i really don't need the excuse of Christmas to indulge in sweet treats but nonetheless.
This is the best time of year not just from the "sweets" perspective but also because each day at school is full of fun. Thanks to all the Christmas related activities, games and crafts that a teacher can plan during this time. 

I did exactly that and spiced up the sight word-see with some Santa magic.

I made an emergent reader called 'Santa, Santa, what do you see?' based on the book "Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see?" by Eric Carle. I threw in Christmas related words and the repetitive text made it easier for children to get acquainted with the the word-see. 

I made copies of the book and children did shared reading.

The sentence strips were read together during whole group time and it helped in reinforcing the word.

After children explored the word, we made a Santa craft and children wrote what their Santa sees.

It gave them practice of writing the word and they got to express themselves creatively.
