Every Christmas we teachers rack our brains to think of new as well as traditional activities to do with our students as the festive season nears.
Over the years I have started preparing children as early as the end of October so as to be sure they knew their Christmas carols and plays off by heart.
However, as a teacher, repeating activities year in, year out, can become less stimulating over time. Therefore I have explored other ideas suggested to me and decided to adapt Christmas activities to learn more language useful to us throughout the year as well as listening comprehension and speaking skills.
I have now compiled a small E-Book of my more successful OUT-OF-THE-ORDINARY CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES in the hope of being able to stimulate other teachers who may want to deviate from their usual Christmas activities.
Looking forward to any feedback regarding these activities and hoping you may want to contribute with more of your own in the comments below.
Susan's OUT-OF-THE-ORDINARY CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES for practising English ESL can be downloaded here.
Wishing your creative Christmas endeavours bring fruitful progress to your students...
Have a wonderful festive season!
