The exams are now finished at my school, and with the exams so are the textbooks finished. Yet, oddly, we still have to teach classes, even though no more marks are going to be input. The students already have their grades, and are still coming to class. So, to try to teach something relevant to the Christmas Season, since I can’t teach anything relevant to the textbook, I adapted an idea I found elsewhere. This is a really simple but still fun handout for students. They are given the word “Christmas Tree” and have to rearrange some of the letters to answer 31 questions. For example, the first question is “Something you wear on your head.” The answer is “hat,” the letters of which are all in the word “Christmas Tree.” Simple enough.
If you do decide to use it, please let us know how it works! Oh, and if you really liked this lesson, and it totally made your job and life easier, then – by all means – feel free to click this button here:
