Here are the lessons we are preparing for this month. We hope that this heads up will help you collect materials as you get ready for the month ahead!
Christmas: Three Weeks of Activities
We will be devoting TWO weeks of lessons to Christmas. There are many extras you can find out and about to use with these units, but most should work around your family traditions.
Week 1’s lessons will focus on a Christmas tree theme and Week 2 will focus on the Nativity. For Week 3 we’ll be searching the web for some fun Christmas Ideas and Crafts.
For extras look for:
- Jingle Bells
- Cotton Balls (snow-balls)
- Holiday Erasers
If you haven’t already, head over to Amazon and download The Incredible Singing Christmas Tree from Veggie Tales. ITS FREE!!
Some Books for Christmas Themes:
New Year’s: One Weeks Activity
We will be focusing on the New Year in the last week of December.
Here are some ideas for extras to look for:
- New Year’s Hats and Party supplies
- End of the Year Magazines and Newspapers
Winter: Two Weeks of Activities
We decided it would be better for our mommies if we posted Christmas early and left winter for the first couple of weeks in January. We will be learning about the season of winter in a two week unit that will talk about the activities, dress, weather, and animals we see during winter.

We look forward to the busy and WONDERFUL month ahead! Hopefully, you are looking forward to it now, too!
