I am a Primary School Teacher in Victoria, Australia with a passion for all things learning! I believe in purposeful teaching that engages students and is differentiated to their individual needs. I create resources that are fun, engaging and meaningful - not simply worksheets. I know what it is like to teach, how time consuming it is and how often we need a helping hand. With all of this in mind, my resources are purposeful and practical and can be used over and over.

Christmas Coupons - No Cost Prize Box

Christmas Coupons - No Cost Prize Box

Looking for a no cost gift that children can put a lot of love into? This will cost you nothing more than purchasing this kit and printing out the pages for the children. The idea behind these coupons is instead of giving someone special (eg. parents) a bought present, they give them coupons that entitle the receiver to gifts such as: - breakfast in bed - bear hugs for a week - taking out the trash etc. As not all teachers have access to colored photocopying, this booklet includes lots of variety for teachers and children to make a great little Christmas Coupon Folder and Coupons. I suggest printing out multiple papers and letting children choose which pictures they like. Children could write coupons for many people, or just the one. After purchasing the file, look closely at each page to ensure the words, font an lines left are appropriate for the children in your class! Included: Pages 4 to 12 – “Merry Christmas” Coupon Covers including blank covers for copying onto colored card or for children to color. Pages 13 to 19 – “Happy Holidays” Coupon Covers Pages 20 to 21 – Blank Coupon Covers Pages 22 to 24 – Coupons with Gifts already listed Pages 25 to 58 – Blank Coupons of different sized lines, different fonts and different pictures. Black and white coupons are included for children to color. Print off different sheets for the children and they can switch coupons between themselves. You will notice differences between the worksheets as you flip through them, simple choose the correct sheets for your class. Both “This coupon is good for” and “This coupon entitles you to” are included for older children. ** Please let me know if you would like any changes made to this pack, please purchase and then email me the changes to aahislop963@gmail.com
