- For Teachers
One problem I have noticed when observing Christmas- themed English lessons with younger children is that the Xmas vocabulary that is covered is often chosen just for how seasonal it is or how well it ties in with craft work, leading to a classroom without the active, fun TPR that should be a standard part of all classes with smaller kids. Here are some suggestions for how you can add mimes to a Xmas class, whether you are eliciting, drilling or testing students on the words of things that will be all around them at this time of year.
