Good Deeds Grinch Bingo! FREEBIE!
I love the Grinch and sweet little Max so MUCH! I remember crying when I was little during the cartoon because I felt bad that the Grinch was so mean to Max LOL..I am a dog lover, too :-) And very tender hearted! I wanted to incorporate the spirit of kindness, love and friendship that the Grinch's story inspires, so I created this super fun and engaging activity that you have to check out if you LOVE the Grinch, like I do :-) A Great Supplement to the Book, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.
Here is what is included:
- "If you give the Grinch your Friendship," Individual booklet activity where the students write their own ideas on each page and illustrate their words
- "If you give the Grinch your Friendship," Grinch Craftivity and writing prompt. (the Grinch is made of hearts) super sweet! Examples and directions all included!
- A List of Story Starters, created by Me, that you can use to have your younger students write and then illustrate in a 10 page booklet.(or if you just want to make it Easy on yourself, or you dont have as much time to let them come up with their own story)
- Pre- Engagement activities to get the students thinking in the right direction before they begin the main activitiy: "How to be a friend to a Grinch brainstorming, "Why do you think the Grinch is mean and acts like a bully?" Why is it important to be kind and loving to others, especially bullies? " A "How To" writing activity of "How to be a friend to the Grinch."

I love science so I have been really thinking hard of ways I can incorporate The Grinch into a Science lesson that doesnt involve the traditional "goop" lesson,, I finally came up with the idea to create a mystery involving a Grinch CopyCat!! The students do a fun experiment analyzing marker colors to prove who pulled a prank on Christmas in SillyCity! Easy set up, easy to understand..Super Engaging!
