His moose-stache is just too adorable!

Before reading the story first, I kind of set the stage with a fun 120-chart activity.
This activity comes with a pre-timed powerpoint, but I just printed the slides 6 to a page and cut them out to use as task cards.
This allowed me to create a center for this activity.
It worked really well and once my students realized that we were getting ready to read Mooseltoe, they got so excited!
Once each student has completed the 120 chart activity, I will read the book to the class.
Then we complete this fun craftivity to work on our fine motor and following direction skills.
I saw this finished activity in the first grade hallway last school year and just had to add it to my toolbox this holiday season.
This resource includes the pattern you need to create the craftivity, as well as a picture step-by-step guide to putting your creativity together (which is super helpful for visual learners).
He turns out REALLY big! You could easily print the trace-able pattern pages to 50% of the original size to save paper and wall space on your bulletin board.
I might have my students add on a writing response sheet to incorporate writing into this math, turned reading activity. Triple threat, my friends!
