Christmas Advent Calendars

Objective
Teach Christmas traditions and create a decoration for the classroom

This is to teach students about the Christmas traditions of advent calendars and writing letters to Santa using the grammar point “I want/I would like”.

The advent calendar is in the form of a Christmas tree and can be used to decorate the students’ classroom. Students will each get a present-shaped piece of card and on one side write their student number and on the other side write their present request to Santa. The format I used was “To Santa, I would like a ~ please, thank you, (name)”.

Each present is attached to the tree with the number facing outwards. On each day of December the students turn over the number for that day to show the present request.
