Stress free homeschooling is possible, even during the holidays. In this post I wanted to give you some simple ways to incorporate Christmas into your school day without adding planning time or complicated supplies. These ideas are meant to be productive, simple and fun. I’ve tried to stick to ideas that require minimal teacher input.
Just in Time For Christmas
A Christmas Art Lesson
One of my favorite ways to add learning during the Christmas Season is to examine a work of art that is focused on the Christmas story.
In this lesson we are going to be examining the Merode Altarpiece which explores the story of the Angel Gabriel came to Mary and announcing that she is going to bear the Christ child. I’ve chosen this painting because it is full of hidden symbols that make it a fun work to explore.
