Grinch Christmas Activities for Middle School

So, I did this activity with my Middle Schoolers!  Yes, even 8th graders LOVED it!  It can be adapted from 1-8th!   What a way to bring character education into a lesson using the Grinch around Christmas time!  I promise you will love it, to!

I you Give the Grinch your Friendship...

This Activity is inspired by Laura Numeroff's adorable "If you Give.." books and becomes a wonderful Literacy and Character Education Lesson all about friendship, kindness and LOVE!   This pack includes a variety of different choices to do the activities, depending on the level your students are at in their writing etc.  I am so excited about this Super CUTE Grinch activity and am even planning to do it with my kiddos next week as we kick off a Grinch week at my campus.
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."
