There are so many wonderful things to do to celebrate Christmas. There are just as many ways to make them educational. Christmas, of course, shouldn’t all be about education. We have to have a little fun, right? But we really can have it both ways–fun and educational. That’s where The ABCs of Homeschooling Through the Holidays comes in. My friend Heather from Life of a Homeschool Mom put together a lovely series called The ABCs of Homeschooling Through the Holidays.
I had the pleasure of writing about letter X. What on earth can you write about for letter X? I promise…there were no Christmas X-rays! Maybe I could have written about X-rays and eXamining your heart! I, however, went another direction. Please hop on over and read The Treasure of Christmas: X Marks the Spot for a special Christmas activity you can do with your kids to help them understand the REAL treasure of Christmas. There is still plenty of time to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s birth!
“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:11 NIV
What you have used for the letter X???

I love the concept of working your way through the alphabet as a way of celebrating Christmas during your homeschool day! Can’t wait to see what you (and the others too!) came up with!
