I love the holidays. In my class, all of my students celebrate Christmas while some celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah. So, we read a lot of Christmas and Hanukkah books during read aloud time during the month of December. Here are Five Fun Christmas Books to use with your class…
The Polar Express – Yes, I know this is a predictable choice, but it’s such a great book. We read it and also watch the movie at our party each year.
Olive the Other Reindeer – Olive is a dog who decides she must be a reindeer based on the lyrics in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. This book goes through how she tries to join Santa’s team. Super cute!
How Santa Got His Job – A fun story about how Santa realized his true calling…
The Jolly Christmas Postman – I love the Jolly Postman story for teaching about letter writing and the Christmas version revisits many of the same characters. Kids love how it has the letters and things you can pull out from inside.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas – Another popular choice that had to make the list! Can’t go wrong with Dr. Seuss!
