My kids love this time of year. They love getting ready for Christmas, and they really enjoy learning about the other winter holidays that are honored and celebrated.
And to be honest, they love having a break from their “regular” homeschool stuff, lol. We have so much going on this time of year, it’s hard to maintain any sort of schedule or routine. Having said that though, I don’t want them doing nothing as far as school work goes.
So how can we continue learning, but have holiday fun too? By finding and using holiday resources like these:
Holiday word lists from VocabularySpellingCity – this site has TONS of holiday word lists. Use them to create fun printables, like crossword puzzles and word searches, and/or for online game play. Here are just a few lists pulled from their site…
*Hanukkah Spelling List
*Christmas Spelling List
*Winter Solstice Spelling List
*New Year’s Eve Spelling List
Here’s a great site for learning the Vocabulary of the Holidays.
Creative Holidays for Teens – great ideas from the Let’s Homeschool High School team.
Is your homeschool a secular homeschool? There are resources for you too! Holiday Learning Resources for the Secular Homeschooler.
Hope you find these helpful, and I wish you and yours a very happy holiday, no matter which holiday it is you celebrate!
