Great Ideas for this activity-filled week

Just love the title of this post at Engage Their Minds: 4 More Ways to Survive 4 More Days

The post shares these four innovative, non-busy work, activities for eager learners:

Candy Cane S.C.A.M.P.E.R.

Ugly Sweater Challenge (I love the Ugly Sweater fractions!)

Toys Go Out (scroll to the end of this post for a great book idea and a link to lesson plans!)

Quiver and Holiday Writing – augmented reality fun for the holidays

I would add one of my favorites from my classroom teaching days: invite students to create different Christmas wish-lists based on what they know of either famous scientists, writers, explorers, monarchs, politicians, mathematicians, whomever you may have studied this term.

As the image from Engage Their Minds indicates: Keep Calm -there are only four days left!
