This year in my school the English department have thought about doing something special and more significative. All the teachers agree that we have to make something in common involving the english language.
So, around Christmas, we decided to record a video with participation of all the students. It has two different parts. We rewrite the Christmas story from one poem we found. And we choose some students from every class to read it. All the primary classes and also the english teachers took part in that.
Is similar to this one:
In this link you can find an activity to make with this poem.
The second part is that all decided to sing a Christmas carol, the same song for everybody, and record another video, that later will be prepared by one teacher who put all the parts together. We decided for this song and write unified lyrics, because we found different versions. So we choose the same for everybody and we practice in the english and music lessons.
We used this karaoke version to sing with the students:
But for the younger ones that can’t read, we used this version:
We also prepared some decorations like pictures of stars, christmas tree or presents to take part in the recording too.
I hope that you can use this as an idea for Christmas resource with your students.
