You can also find the lyrics for all the most popular Christmas carols in this booklet. If Christmas is not the holiday you are concerned about right now, check out some other worksheets now and come back here when the time is right.
Holiday lessons are some of the most fun both for students and teachers. They offer a nice break from the usual study material and encourage everyone to have fun. Teachers often make holiday lessons exceptionally easy but you should try to find a balance between having fun and learning English. You can use a holiday as a theme for a lesson on material from the textbook or even just challenge your students with the types of activities you choose to include in your lessons. Holidays on their own are not always enough to engage students so be sure to keep your students in mind when planning your lessons.
