One of my most favorite holiday classroom activities is
Secret Santa of Kind Words. With all of the holiday
rushing, testing, finishing projects, and general craziness
of the last weeks of school before the holiday break
I like to slow things down a bit and have my kiddos
take a minute to share some kind words with a classmate.
We pick names and then make these Secret Santa cards.
Not telling who they picked about causes my kids
burst but the precious things they say to one another
truly reminds me why I love these kids so much!
The smiles are just priceless as they read the
sweetness from their Secret Santa!
I must admit that my Secret Santa’s tend to get
a little carried away with the tape but those
candy canes will NOT be falling off, by golly!
I’ve had quite a few requests to use this for Secret Buddies,
updated the file with templates for those. (If you’ve previously
purchased this be sure to go to TPT and redownload the file
from your “My Purchases” page to get these new inserts!)
This Christmas Kindness Kit also includes a bonus writing craft.
I Shine When I’m Kind!
