ESL MATERIALS FOR CHRISTMAS
Christmas is approaching and students are getting more and more excited about the coming holidays. Here are some ESL materials for Christmas to keep them busy in these last orange- and cinnamon-flavoured weeks of 2022:
VIDEO-BASED CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES 2022:
This is a Christmas game for kids and pre-teens. It’s suitable for small groups (up to 4 players + presenter/teacher). The players move on a Christmas tree shaped board which can be printed or copied onto a big sheet of paper (recycled wrapping paper is perfect for this operation). The players are half-naked Santa Clauses (they are in underpants and vest) looking for their clothing items (socks, boots, pants, coat, etc.), their sack and their 9 reindeer. They can win these in challenges or buy them. As for the challenges, the questions are ESL-related: transforming sentences into simple past (irregular verbs), naming Christmas objects, some other topics.
Find some nice Christmas video- and song-based activities, discussing kindness, prejudice and overeating and bullying (with the famous Rudolph song).
For coding fans, there’s a Scratch animation.
To make things even more exciting, you can plan a coding lesson (ideal for online courses) and you can reconstruct the code with your students with the edit version. Feel free to remix it as you wish.
The videos are numb, so they are ideal for A1 ESL classes. The topics are suitable for young teens.
The booklet contains two activities from last year’s Christmas Colouring Pages (one modified).
It closes with an Exit ticket, which can be used at the end of the Christmas lesson cycle.

Well, Santa’s life is full of business decisions and he and his Little Helpers might need to make some important choices before December 24th. In this 3-page worksheet, your students can engage in five situations: one role-play and four business meetings with a set agenda.
The lesson is conversation-based and it relies on pre-taught business vocabulary.
The last page of the worksheet consists of the role-play cards for the first situation.
