4 Festive Holiday Learning Activities

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and for teachers, that means finding new and creative ways to make learning fun throughout the holiday season. Instead of trying to tame students’ excitement, you can build fun, seasonal lessons around it.

Here are a few festive learning activities you can gift your students this winter.

Winter-Themed Writing

Winter is truly a sight to behold. Streets are blanketed with snow and houses are covered in lights. This gives students plenty to write about and can serve as inspiration for seasonally-themed lessons. You can use a more guided, customizable core writing resource or give your class more freedom with writing journals.

Indoor Educational Dance Party

Stuck indoors with your students? Crank up the tunes and have an educational jam session. Find music with songs and movements that correspond to your lessons for an unforgettable learning experience.

Productive Keyboarding Practice

Put your students’ time on the computer to good use with engaging keyboarding programs that teach proper technique and responsible digital citizenship. The most effective keyboarding programs are cross-curricular and can supplement lessons in other subjects like social studies and math!

Outdoor Snow Letter Formation

Playing in the snow can be productive. Encourage beginning letter-learners to practice their skills outside this winter by forming letters they’ve learned in the snow.

We’d love to see how you and your class conquer winter. Share your seasonal learning success with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
