Yes, it's tacky, but students in the early childhood classes loved it.
Simply add a door and windows to a folding display board, add Velcro strips, and invest in some dollar store holiday items. Many of my items were cast-offs.
Pair with a book about a gingerbread house and teach the adjectives big, little, noisy, rough or bumpy, smooth, hard, and soft. Students chose a holiday decoration, used one or more adjectives to describe it, and then placed it on the board and told its location (next to Santa, over the window, etc).
|Introduce the adjectives by presenting objects (rock, cotton, sandpaper, and bells) with pictures.|
