I can not believe that the Winter break is almost here! Does your school allow you to incorporate Winter holiday activities? I have had the opportunity to work at some schools that do not allow for Winter Holiday activities to take place, other schools that have big holiday programs, and another that took an inclusion approach by celebrating and embracing all Winter holidays. Therefore, you will definitely, need to know your school and what is allowed.
To help us all make it through the last few weeks, I went in search of some fresh ideas to add to my therapy plans. Best yet is that I found some great treats among Teachers Pay Teachers freebies!
Now, go grab yourself a nice hot cup of cocoa (or mulled wine, apple cider, etc..) and your favorite holiday cookies because this list of freebies and the blog posts below will make the last weeks of planning that much easier! Check out these ten Winter holiday-themed freebies I found!
