Santa burst out of my chimney, but he fell right back in my chimney. They all loved them! The sheet shows which keys are used in the song and also has the starting key highlighted for you. Give students a head start by helping them figure out what key the song is written in and identifying the primary triads for that key.
The safest place for them is with you, so please do NOT put letters in the post. The elves suggest that once your little one is safely tucked up in bed, you whisk the letter away and find a really, really good hiding place for it.
What explanation should I give as to how the letter has gone to the North Pole? The elves encourage you to use whatever story you like best. Others agree that there are some extremely helpful birds out there, particularly robins and owls, who like to make themselves useful at this time of year.
The letter is addressed to Father Christmas, but we call him Santa at home. Quite a few it would seem. But the good news is he likes them all just the same.
If he is Santa in your family then long may he be Santa! Letter From Father Christmas In what way is the letter personalised? Father Christmas will address your child by name, and in the letter he will mention details about them such as where they live and what they would like for Christmas.

In my Christmas Around the World writing crafts bundle , I have some easy crafts you can do after learning about the different holidays. For Hanukkah: If you want to get brave, you can let them put glitter on their menorah which makes it extra cute! Have them sprinkle some gold glitter on the flames to make them shine.
For the actual game, depending on which side the dreidel lands on, kids either take from the pot, give to the pot, or do nothing. So give your kiddos yellow cubes or yellow pom pom balls to represent gelt and a dreidel to spin. You can usually find 4 packs of dreidels at the dollar store!
It's a ton of fun! Another craft I love to do for Hanukkah is hand print menorahs! To do this craft, paint each kids' hand yellow on their palms, blue on their fingers, and orange on their finger tips. Only do 1 thumb and leave the other clean for the candle in the middle. Then, have them put their thumbs on top of each other painted thumb on bottom and press down to make a menorah! I love the way they turned out!! Once the paint dries, you can have them color in the "Happy Hanukkah" and the border.
For Kwanzaa, I have these 2 fun crafts: You can also add the glitter to the flames of the candles of the kinara for Kwanzaa as well! I am usually weary of glitter but I have come to accept that I will somehow find glitter on me every single day in December whether I use it or not.

For the boys, fold a piece of white paper into a cone. Dedicated to the principle that children learn best when they are actively involved, we ask these questions: They had the sweetest little messages in them. What kid doesn't like to be blindfolded and handed a bat to swing as hard as they can at a fun object with the hopes that candy rains on them?! Kids write [ ].
It's a ton of fun! I LOVE it!! We are always looking for Saving Santa: Santa's stuck in a chimney. Then, have them put their thumbs on top of each other painted thumb on bottom and press down to make a menorah!
