Christmas School

It's once again time for Christmas School! This year we are doing a unit study on the symbols of Christmas.

I am using 2 different unit studies.

1 -
This one is free and contains 25 days of activities - each on a different symbol of Christmas. Obviously I won't be able to use all of this, but that's ok. Since there are so many, I can pick and choose what I like.

This one was a free download at a few months ago. Right now it is about $5. This one covers 10 symbols of Christmas and ends up as a really cute "lapbook".

We are doing Christmas School as our Bible and Art. No History or Science or regular Language Arts until after New Year's. Other daily work: the kids are all doing Math, James is doing Explode the Code, David and Emily are doing Reading. We may add some other things also on an intermittent basis.

This is a tradition for us - to do Christmas School each year between Thanksgiving and New Year's. I love having the break from regular daily work and also the time to do some of the Christmas things I found I was not able to fit in along with all the regular things.
