12 Days of Giving: Freebie!

Welcome to Day 9 of the Literary League’s 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We know that the holiday season is busy for both teachers and students, and it never seems to slow down after that. To help you make it through the rest of the year, you need a stock pile of lessons that can be easily implemented at any time. Today you’ll find a resource that you can use any time of year in your classroom.




For this project, students design a vocabulary poster with a definition, example, and illustration. I like to assign this poster project three times a year: once with Short Stories (for literary terms), once before our Shakespeare unit (for drama vocabulary), and again for poetic devices in the spring. My students always come up with amazing designs, and these double as classroom decoration and reference posters. There’s even an editable version included, so that you can make it your own. I know your students will enjoy this project as much as mine do!


And if you haven’t already, enter to win the Teachers Pay Teachers gift certificate below. The winner will be notified on December 13th.


Visit The Creative Classroom¬†tomorrow for Day 10 of the Literary League’s 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. Look for a special surprise coming on Day 12!
