These days every teacher is preparing activities to do for Christmas: games, singing carol songs, Christmas shows for the parents, decorations for the classrooms…and so on.
So, to make all this work a bit easier, I’m going to give you some resources you can use if you are looking for more ideas.
– Books and stories: in the blog “Class class, yes yes”, the author has included recently some reviews of books and materials for Christmas.
– Colouring pages: in the web of “The Glitter teacher” you can find some beautiful pages to colour for the kids.
– Resources: in the web “Teaching ideas” you can find games and worksheets about this topic.
– New opportunities to put into practice some Apps: this year with the app Aurasma we have prepared for the families a special Christmas card with a related video we have recorded before with all the children. In the class we have colour and prepared the card, have recorded the video with Christmas decorations elements and the teachers have prepared the videos matching them with a specific picture included in the card. It is very original! It is a type of augmented reality. Here you have a video as example.
I hope you can find these ideas useful. Happy preparation!
