Christmas speaking and listening teaching ideas

 
   
Guess the Christmas jumper wearer, a Mrs Claus monologue and an interview with Rudolph all feature in our latest Christmas offering – 20 teaching ideas for Christmas. Many of the ideas work well as starters or speaking tasks.

There may be snow and mistletoe, reindeer and festive cheer … in your students’ Christmas poems. Compose rhyming or serious poems, and perform them together!

Invite the defence of Christmas with debate-starters including ‘Councils should not promote Christmas because not all people are Christian’, just one of these Controversial statements.
