It is so hard to keep my homeschool schedule going this time of year! Only 6 more days until Christmas, and the kids can barely sit still for a minute! We will take a nice Christmas break next week but I was hoping to get a few more “school days” in if possible. I decided, for my and the kids sake, I would look for as many Christmasy activities as I could find to fill our days!
I wanted to share some of the awesome Christmas Homeschool Activities I found for us to do this week!
1. Christmas Coordinate Planes:
My 7 year old had so much fun with these Christmas Block Coordinates from math-salamanders.com today! It was a great review of what we had worked on earlier this year, and he had fun! There is a whole collection of others like this snowman! Also, if you explore further you will find a lot more Christmas math activities and puzzles at all levels!
2. Christmas Color by Number:
Both my 5 and 7 year olds love to do color by numbers! I found these for my 5 year old, but my older son will not be left out! Color by numbers are great for reviewing reading color words and working on fine motor skills! My boys are so excited about the awesome christmas pictures they have made.
These great color by numbers are available in a free printable from itsybitsyfun.com.
Also, check out these free printables from noelladesigns.com. Some of these designs are a little more advanced. They also have some very nice nativity scenes that I might just have to sit down and do myself!
3. Christmas themed worksheets!
If you want to keep practicing some skills you’ve been working on with your kids there are tons of options for Christmas themed practice worksheets. Here are a few great links I’ve found to use with my kids!
4. Christmas Mad Libs
My very favorite thing I found was Christmas mad libs. The whole family got in on the fun this evening. I found several links with free printable that you can use with your kids! You will be reading, practicing language arts, reviewing nouns, verbs, and adjectives, and (if yours turn out anything like ours) laughing until you are crying!
5. Christmas Reading
Reading is one thing that I never leave out of school! I want my kids to know that reading is always a part of our lives and we can read about anything and everything! Here are some great Christmas reading passages and activities that I am using this week!
- Here is a free reading comprehension passage for early readers! http://snippetsbysarah.blogspot.com/2012/12/santa-stuck-freebies.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+SarahsFirstGradeSnippets+
- My 7 year old is going to love this “Roll a story activity I found on Teacherspayteachers.com by CreateTeachShare. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Christmas-Roll-a-Story-2245731
- Edventures for kids has great list of kids Christmas story books! I think my favorite is “Snowmen at Christmas” by Caralyn Buehner.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my list of activities for my “Week Before Christmas” Homeschool! If you have any more fun Christmas activities you are planning for this week I’d love to hear about them! Share them in the comments below!
