Christmas Joy

After a week of two hours delays, sugared up children, and assemblies. I sit here with a smile, a heating pad, and a burrito the size of my head. It’s a great feeling to be done for a few days, get a break, and enjoy the holidays. Today I thought I would share videos off of my ever growing YouTube playlist that I have used with my holiday themed lessons this week.

Muppet Carols– I like to play quick games of, Guess that Carol! and have short sing-a-longs with these videos to teach my students the classics that they should know if they celebrate Christmas! and c’mon..IT’S THE MUPPETS!!

Carol of the Bells

Joy to the World

Twelve Days of Christmas (With John Denver)

Movement Break-  I love to dance in class and lately I’ve turned to YouTube to teach the students and I more dances, this video is from Just Dances Kids 2 and is a great dance to the tune of Jingle Bells.

Shake Break – Have a class of sugared up kids that just cannot sit still? Try this shake break before moving on with the lesson!

Nutcracker- Teaching your students about the Nutcracker? Check out this video, it is a great example from the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.
