Default Re: Christmas Games and Activities?

For my adult and community college students, I used to bring in a huge selection of holiday greeting cards from the very religious to quite secular. Each student got to choose two holiday cards to send - one for a relative and one for a friend. They added their own messages in English. They loved it!
The UNICEF cards worked well, but you could also get card collections on sale. Variety - and a nod toward multi-religious faiths - works best in cosmopolitan cities like Los Angeles. It's also a nice end of semester activity because students get to use and display their increased language skills.
As the old American TV commercial used to suggest, "try it; you'll like it."


"Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity."
Aristotle, 4th Century BCE, Greek philosopher
