It’s hard to believe it’s almost Christmas! Christmas is less than a week away! December always seems to go by so quickly!
This past week, our two older boys had programs at school. This week is filled with Christmas parties at school.
Some of you are out of school already! If that’s you, congratulations! If you are one of many who don’t start break until the end of this week, I have something just for you. Today, I’m sharing my Christmas lesson filled with music activities for preschool. It’s perfect for preschool, but can be easily adapted for homeschool, with a group or even a few children, daycare, learning centers, or kindergarten classes. The lesson plan is part of my preschool music lessons set, which you can check out here.

I love to use books with the younger grades during music. They would be a great addition to a Christmas lesson! Here are some of my favorite Christmas books for young ones:
- Feliz Navidad
- Polar Express
- The Legend of the Candy Cane
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- Room for a Little One
Hope this gives you some ideas to try with your classes or even your own children!
