During the Christmas season, keeping kids focused can be a difficult undertaking. It's filled with the excitement of getting presents, vacations, and family get togethers, caroling, shopping and, of course, Santa Claus. Harnessing all that excitement and energy can also be difficult for teachers. However, the season also presents magnificent learning opportunities that can be enjoyable for both student and teacher.

We offer worksheets, word search and crossword puzzles as well as a number of creative Christmas crafts for kids. But it doesn't end there.
