2. As kids grow more restless and excited due to the Christmas season, use these Christmas Games for the Classroom, including Mad-Libs, Bingo and Group Building Games!

3. Incorporate a readers-theater style exploration with this Classroom Holiday Puppet Theater idea that includes scripts for download.
