Who Is Watching Baby Jesus?

Today is the 20th and final posting of Nativity A Day.  It looks like I missed 3 posting, but I might not be finished for today yet!!  I really enjoyed this challenge, and I hope that you did too.

My offering for today is Who Is Watching Baby Jesus? and it’s played like Who Took the Cookie? and Who Stole Santa’s Elf? that I posted after Thanksgiving.  Players are dealt cards face down and flip one at a time over.  If the player doesn’t have baby Jesus, they say “NOT ME” and play continues on in this manner, one player at a time.  If they do flip over baby Jesus, then they say “IT’S ME” and the game ends.  In this case, the one “watching” baby Jesus is the winner!!  This also includes the box to store the cards in.

Nativity Alphabet Writing Practice

It’s the 19th posting of Nativity A Day and it’s almost at it’s end.  Tomorrow will be the final day that I offer a nativity freebie for this holiday season.  I’ve had so much fun with this.  I’ve stressed over it a few times, missed a couple days…..but no matter what, I enjoyed it!!  I hope that you did as well and that the kids benefit from this in so many ways.

Up for offering today are Nativity Alphabet Writing Practice cards.  These tracing cards are a good size cards that could easily be laminated and written on with dry erase marker or they could just be printed out and used with any writing instrument.  Each card contains the upper case and lower case letter, with a cute nativity scene.  Also, there’s 2 sets, in case some of you use ZB or DN (labeled in the file name).

The Nativity Cards & Box

So it’s finally back to The Schoolhouse with Nativity A Day.  This is the 17th posting and there’s only 3 more to go in addition to this one.  That means that I missed 3 postings!!  What do you think of that??  Do you think that I completed my personal challenge??

Today I have a set of nativity cards to offer.  These are large cards and can be used a number of ways.  If you only print one set, you could use them for flashcards, sequencing, or retelling the story of the nativity.  If you print 2 copies, they could be used for “Go Fish”, concentration/memory, or “Old Maid” (but don’t forget to pull one card so you have an odd one).  They could be used for so much more too!!  It also includes a storage box to keep them in.

Reason for the Season Lacing Cards

So now I’m a day behind with my Nativity A Day freebies and I’m not sure if I’m going to get caught up or just have to write a day off as missed.  I missed my posting yesterday because I was just overwhelmed with my religion class Christmas party and things around the house.

Putting that behind me, I have the 14th posting of Nativity A Day and it’s a set of Reason for the Season Lacing Cards.  I tried to make the lacing cards a couple of different ways, but I kept going back to this style.  These are shape cards with nativity images in the middle of each card.  They’re laced around the ample border of each shape.  I’m actually very happy with the way that they turned out and hope that you’ll be able to use them at home or in the classroom!!

The Nativity Dominoes

Nativity A Day and it’s 13th posting brings us a set of nativity dominoes.  This is a large set!!  They’re a size that should be good for small hands to play with….and big ones too.  There’s also a storage box to hold the set of dominoes. 

There’s so many activities that can be done with dominoes, so I hope that these will help you find something fun for the kids to do or a nice family night Christmas game!!

Graphing and Tallying the Nativity

Today is the 11th post of Nativity A Day and it’s moving right along.  I actually made this one during some free time last night, but by the time it was done, I was too tired to actually post it!!

Today’s Nativity A Day freebie is a set of graphing worksheets.  For the first one, there are different elements from the nativity on a chart and they will need to right down the points where each element is.  I provided an answer key for this so that they can self-check if desired.

The next two activities require a the die that elements of the nativity on it.  Each time it’s rolled, they will either tally or color in the chart for which element it lands on.  There’s no answer key for the graphing or tallying because answers will vary each time.

Children’s Nativity Jigsaw Puzzles

From now today until 23 December, I’ll be offering a FREE printable on either this blog or my family life blog.  They will all be nativity themed, unless I come up with some brilliant idea that I just HAVE to do and share that day.  I’ll be creating them for a variety of ages/grades, so I’m hoping to have all the kids covered for nativity activities this CHRISTmas season.  So please, be sure to check back everyday for a new FREE nativity printable and if it’s not here, go to Commotion from the Ocean of Life  to find your FREEBIE for that day.  Remember, my plan is one a day,but sometimes life interferes with the best of intentions and you may not find them released at the same time each day!!

My first offering is a set of nativity jigsaw puzzles.  They range from 4 to 6 to 8 to 12 pieces.  They all feature children’s nativity pieces or they’re nativities that feature children in them.  There are 6 jigsaw puzzles in this set in total.
