Nativity Read & Write The Room Printables

Many years ago when I taught Kindergarten in a public school, I enjoyed using Read & Write the Room with my students. I used this idea with my own children when they were younger, see our original post about this here. Since I am teaching Kindergarten again, I am using Read & Write the Room weekly with my students! You can see all about our Read & Write the Room A to Z here and see it in action here!

What is Read & Write the Room?

The concept is very simple. Word cards are placed around the room to be read and as students locate the cards, they write the words on a recording sheet. Read more here, including how to set it up, why it is a great activity for emerging readers, and more!


Nativity Words

Last week I shared our new Christmas Theme Read and Write the Room with you, and today I have a new set with 12 nativity words! This free printable set includes 12 different Nativity words: Jesus, Mary, Joseph, shepherd, stable, donkey, cow, sheep, horse, star, and angel. Each card emphasizes the beginning letter of each word, which is a great review for children who are learning letters and letter sounds!

Unfamiliar with Nomenclature cards, also called 3-Part cards? 

Nomenclature cards are a Montessori based idea. The word Nomenclature comes from the Latin “nomenclatura” which means assigning of names to things. Nomenclature cards are also called “3 part cards” for obvious reasons! Read here on our Montessori page to learn more!

Christmas Theme Listen & Do

We have several Listen & Do activities in our Kindergarten Literature Units, and today I am sharing our first theme-based set with you! In this free printable set, you’ll find five different Christmas theme Listen & Do activities to enjoy with your kids!

Our Listen & Do activities help develop good listening skills while also working on basics like shapes, colors, numbers, and letters. Give your child the Listen and Do image page while you read from the list. If your child is still enjoying the activity when you get through with the list, I recommend making up your own “listen and do” ideas to extend the activity time!

My Kindergarten students enjoy these activities a LOT! I hope your kids do too!

A few options for play…

Option #1 {single player}

Print the Peek & Find board.

Print the cards and cut out.

Mix up the cards, choose one at a time and find the object on the Peek & Find board. Color, circle, or mark the object.

Option #2 {2 or more players}

Print a Peek & Find board for each player and one set of cards. Cut out the cards.

Flip over a card and race to see who finds the object first on their board. Using Dot Paint with this game is fun!

Winner keeps the card.

Person with the most cards at the end is the winner!

See a video of my daughter and I playing {we were using the SPRING theme board in this video} …

Option #3 {sensory, fine motor activity}

Create a sensory bin and bury the cards.

Use a fine motor tool {child tweezers} to dig for cards and pull them out and then find the object on the Peek & Find board and mark it.

Option #4 {gross motor activity}

Hide the cards around the room and challenge your child to find one card at a time and bring it back to the board, find it, mark it, and repeat! This is a great version for those of you with energetic younger kids!

Options for marking the board…

  • Mini Gingerbread Men
  • Dot Paint
  • BINGO Chips
  • Bottle Tops
  • Pouch Tops
  • Mini Pom Poms
  • Markers, Crayons, Colored Pencils
  • Beads
  • Mini Erasers
  • Beans

These mini gingerbread men would make adorable markers for the boards!

Grab some gingerbread books and toys to go along!
