Counting down the days until the Christmas holidays is now rife in Australian classrooms, with both teachers and students eagerly awaiting the holidays!

Life is easier, if the kids are busy with worthwhile tasks. With a little creative planning, I think it is easy to use students’ interest in the holidays to engage and inspire learning into your Christmas classroom.
