Christmas Unit For Kids

Let the learning and fun play keep going by creating a Christmas unit study for kids. Read on below for our favorite ideas to get you started.

First up is reading to your children. Reading aloud to kids can help them in a variety of ways – from learning new words to imagining the story they are listening to, to developing a love of reading!

Because of these benefits and many more, we recommend starting any new theme with books.

Below are some of the top Christmas books to read to your kids!

Dasher: This wonderfully illustrated Christmas book for kids gives you the back story on one of Santa’s favorite reindeer, Dasher! Girls will especially love to read this since Dasher is a girl.

Construction Site On Christmas Night: Fans of the fun characters of the construction site books have to add this Christmas themed story to their collection. See how the trucks get ready for Christmas!

How To Catch An Elf: Kids everywhere love the silliness of this Christmas story. The rhymes and the illustrations will draw the kids in as well. This is a Christmas book kids will want to read every year!

Making crafts is another fun activity that’s loaded with benefits. Like we said earlier, it can help kids learn to focus, bring out their innate creativity, and strengthen the muscles in their hands.
