Thanks to this Christmas lesson plan, students discuss Christmas preparations, watch some tear-jerking commercials and write their own Christmas wishes.
DISCUSSION & CHRISTMAS ADS
First, students discuss a few questions about Christmas, their preparations and celebrations. Next, they move to another exercise and watch Christmas ads. Each of them watch one advert. While watching, they should take notes because then they’ll summarize the ad to their partner and explain how the people shown were preparing for Christmas. After this exercise, students talk about other cool Christmas commercials they’ve seen, the Christmas spirit as well as whether they write wishes or text messages during this time of the year. This question should serve as a lead-in to the remaining tasks.
WRITING CHRISTMAS WISHES
The next task is a word formation exercise. Students read some Christmas wishes and decide which part of speech (noun, adjective, adverb, etc.) is missing in each gap. Then, they complete them with the correct form of the words in brackets. To practise a bit the expressions and phrases, they get a Christmas card and need to find and fix four mistakes in it. Finally, in the production stage of this lesson plan, students have to write Christmas wishes to a friend, family member, or co-worker. They need to choose the appropriate beginning and closing from the list given. Remind them to come up with their own Christmas wishes and don’t copy word by word the ones from the previous exercises.
