Christmas School

It seems that every year I struggle with what to do during the two weeks of Christmas and New Years. It’s so tempting to just take those two weeks off, however there are so many fun activities to be done at this time of the year. One of my homeschool friends calls this Christmas School. What does she mean by that? Basically, it is tailoring each lesson to a Christmas theme. For instance, you can have spelling lists that have all holiday words on them. Or you could do Lapbook based on “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”. Math could be based on the fractions and such required while making Christmas cookies. I’m sure the wheels are already turning in your head thinking of many more possibilities.
