Christmas Grammar Activity - Editing Errors in Holiday Characters' Social Media: This Christmas grammar activity allows students to edit grammar, spelling, and punctuation in a fun and modern way! Students will have the chance to read some of their favorite Christmas characters' social media updates to find errors, correct them, and give reasons for their corrections! With fun illustrations and humorous social media "handles", this activity will give students something to smile about as they practice their grammar.

This is included in a holiday bundle:

Included In This Christmas Grammar Activity:

➡️ 14 Social Media Christmas Grammar Task Cards: Share these 14 social media task cards with students that you can print for students to edit. Each of the cards includes a social media post by a Christmas character, and students must locate and correct errors within the post.

➡️ Task Card Answer Key: After students have completed the task cards, share these print-ready answer keys that provide reasoning for all edits and make reviewing or grading your students' answers easy as can be.

➡️ Presentation Answer Key Review Slides: Review the task cards with students using the included 15-slide PowerPoint presentation. Each of the slides includes all the explanations for the errors, so you can easily review the answers with your students.

➡️ Smaller Version of the Social Media Posts: An option is also provided without the space for students to write their answers, so you can use this resource in multiple ways! Have students complete the work in a notebook or add these cards to a station.

How To Use This Christmas Grammar Activity:

This resource can be used in a few different ways:

1. Christmas Edit Of The Day: Introduce one of the updates to your class each day for the 14 days leading up to Christmas break. Everyone receives a copy and makes the edits and reasoning on their own (or you can do it in groups or pairs). Then you can use the PowerPoint to go over the update together as a class and come to a consensus.

2. Christmas Writing Centers: Include a packet of the task cards at a writing center where students can choose which updates to work on. Edits can be made in their writing notebook rather than on the sheet. You can also make an answer key booklet for them to use after they are done!

3. Pair Work: Give each pair of students a Christmas update task card and have them complete it together. Then each pair can present the update to the class, and share what edits they made. The class can give further suggestions.

4. Group Work: Give a group of three or four students one of the Christmas updates and have them come to an agreement about the edits to make and the rewritten sentence. The group can present the update to the class when they are finished.

What Teachers Are Saying About This Christmas Grammar Activity:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Engaging, fun, and still educational - win, win, win! The week before winter holidays is always a challenge for teachers and students, but this Christmas grammar activity makes it easier to keep the class on task during that time when we are all counting down the days to break. Thank you!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a fun and timely way to help students engage in what I call "practical grammar practice." Students were engaged and had fun. I definitely recommend this resource

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Around holiday season, any resource is helpful! For students needing review on sentence structure, parts of speech, capitalization, punctuation, and comma usage, this is the resource for you!
