Welcome to December, friends!
Can you believe Christmas is just a few short weeks away? Are your kids having a hard time focusing on their regular lessons?
Why not add these holiday pages to your homeschool lessons? They’re sure to capture your little one’s attention.
Christmas Alphabet Hunt
These Christmas Alphabet Hunt pages are perfect for the holiday season. Each of the pages in this set follows the same format.
The giant letters at the top of the page have arrows to reinforce proper letter formation. Each page has a Christmas image for your little ones to color.
Then, at the bottom, is a letter grid. Students are instructed to color the boxes that contain the focus letter. They can do so with crayons or with do-a-dot markers.
This is also a great activity to discuss initial sounds. Discuss the sound of each letter and the beginning sound of each image.
See if your child recognizes the letters that are not colored in. Do they know what sound those letters make?
You can introduce the terms uppercase and lowercase. You could talk about the fact that names, like Santa, begin with capital letters but words like ‘ornament’ do not. Kids don’t have to understand common and proper noun at this point. But, it doesn’t hurt to plant a seed for future lessons.
