1. Using Christmas flashcards, model the vocabulary and have students repeat. If you have smaller game cards, you can play memory, go fish or another game to solidify the vocabulary (although this will take more time)
2. Create a reading sheet with a few short sentences describing the item and have students circle the picture that corresponds to that description.
3. Follow up with a Christmas crossword that has similar descriptions to the reading and the students must write the correct word in the crossword.
** if you have time, have the students do a short free-writing assignment describing the Christmas item like either of the 2 activities above. They may just copy at first but hopefully with practice they'll begin to do more on their own. **
