ESL Christmas Songs, Stories and Videos

I know that many of you have started your holidays, but that doesn't mean you should stop
practicing your English. In  fact, this is the perfect time to practice as much as you can out of class.
 We have now officially entered the Christmas season, so I am compiling a list of fun Christmas readings, listening, videos and music. I hope you will enjoy these activities and share them with your families. I am even including some games and vocabulary for children, so this can be a family affair.

Reading and vocabulary activities will be in the Reading Page.Listening activities and children and adult games will go into the Listening Pages. Songs will go into the Music Page. Children's gamesWatch for different items during the next few weeks.
 Some specific things to look for: 
  • Charlie's Brown's Christmas - a famous Christmas video 
  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas - another famous video of the Dr. Seuss Story.  
  • Videos about many aspects of Christmas , Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.
  • Listening/reading activities about the day before Christmas, Christmas, Boxing
    Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, the 6th of January  and Kwanzaa. 
  • Christmas vocabulary
  • Christmas around the world 
  • The Gift of the Magi and more.                                           
  • Start with this wonderful advent  calendar. Make sure that you only open one window each day as you count down to Christmas. Don't peek!  December Advent Calendar
