After the Christmas Holidays

Christmas is Behind You, Now What?

Sometimes it's nice to provide students with the opportunity to share their holiday memories and traveling destinations. That's precisely why I created the Holiday Memory Booklet. Print enough copies of the booklet or just some of the great pages and your students will be thrilled to share their vavaction times with you.

I used to have some fun with my young learners when they returned from a holiday. I played Christmas Snap with them. The first student said one thing they got for Christmas, another student said SNAP if they got the same things, each student would get a chance to tell what they got.

I also let them do a comic strip about and event that happened over Christmas.

Have  few ideas you would like to share? That's what we're here for.

Christmas Fun

One of the challenges I used to give my students in the classroom was to have them figure out the cost of the items in the 12 Days of Christmas. Each year we would find the listing that would display the prices of each song item and calculate how much the True Love would have to spend this year.

A few other Christmas activities include
  • How many words can you make with the word Christmas?
  • How many items can you name that are white? red? green?
  • How many Christmas foods can you name?
  • How many Christmas ornmaments can you name?
  • How many days? hours? minutes? seconds until Chrismas?
  • How many different Christmas songs can you name in 3 minutes?
  • Re-write the words for a Christmas song and turn it into a birthday song.
