Celebrate the Season with Holiday Websites

Looking for some fun holiday websites for your students? Here are a few of our favorites, both old and new.

Grinch-mas

Grinch-mas is a holiday tradition inspired by Dr. Seuss’s classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas!  Grinch-mas encourages readers to “grow your heart three sizes” through the celebration of family reading, giving from the heart, and community spirit. National Grinch Day, on December 1, will kick-start the 25 Days of Grinch-mas. During this time, bookstores and local retailers all over the country will be hosting Grinch-mas events that will incorporate holiday storytimes for families with opportunities for kids to win prizes for doing good deeds throughout the month of December. It might be too late to join in this year, but the website includes print-color-create activities, clips to watch, and games to play.

Snowflake Maker

This easy-to-use website allows you to virtually cut folded paper and preview the snowflake. Whether you have students create a flake and then write a story of the flake’s travels or whether you have them incorporate specific mathematical features (rhombus, trapezoid, triangle, etc.), this site will be a fun start.

Holiday eCard

This site shares a lot of different options for sending a holiday e-card. 

Holiday Activities

Northpole.com celebrates the holidays with dozens of activities for children and families. A child-safe, award-winning holiday site, northpole.com promotes a traditional look at Santa’s Secret Village at the North Pole, but with high-tech, creative features to keep children and adults entertained—all for free.

Winter and Christmas Mad Libs

Mad Libs is a phrasal template word game where specific parts of speech are substituted for blanks in a story and then read out loud.  A little history on Mad Libs:  110+ million copies of Mad Libs books have been sold since the series was first published in 1958. This site has some fun holiday-themed Mad Libs your students are sure to enjoy.
