This extensive list will be sure to keep your little ones busy this holiday season. The activities are divided into categories that include everything from Christmas Trees to snowflakes! They are simple enough for younger students, but slightly older students are catered for as well.
Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean students' brains can switch off! Keep them motivated with this selection of printable math worksheets. There is enough variety to cater for a range of abilities and they are perfect to use as activities for early finishers.
To add some festive cheer to your classroom try playing these Christmas songs in the background. You can play them in the morning as students are entering the classroom, when you are creating your Christmas craft, or (my favorite) whilst students are packing up. Give them a set of instructions and allow them the length of one song to complete them!
Christmas cards are great activity for all ages. They offer easy links to literacy, handwriting, ICT, and art. I like to use it in conjunction with a task such as poetry for a fun and useful Christmas activity.
This website offers an extensive range of ideas across all subject areas. There are plenty of gift, writing. reading and math ideas, but my favorite is the geography focus. Use this time to teach your class about other cultures and languages, it will leave them feeling extra festive!
Coking and food preparation are great life skills that you often don't get the chance to teach in the classroom. These easy recipes may require some help from your wonderful teaching assistant or parents, but your children will love creating some tasty treats! They make great gift ideas too.
