Surviving Christmas in Your Homeschool with a Christmas Unit Study

One of the best pieces of advice I received the first year I homeschooled was to take a break during December. A friend of mine who had kids the same ages, but had homeschooled since Kindergarten, told me she “quits” formal homeschooling. I wish I had a Christmas Unit Study to help me, but I didn’t.

What you might say? Quit homeschooling for a month.

Well, not really!

From this piece of advice, our family began a Christmas tradition of integrating Christmas and Advent into our homeschooling. I mention a few ideas on our 3 Clues to Keep Christ in Christmas online workshop. These include:

  • Reading books with an Advent or Christmas theme (Language Arts)
  • Learning math through baking (Math & Science)
  • Selling baked goods to earn money for missionary gifts (Math & Business)
  • Studying the history of special Advent days from history (History)

But there are so many more ideas to integrate Christmas into your reading, writing, math, history, science and other homeschooling. Use Christmas as your central focus all month-long. I have many ideas for you in our Christmas Unit Study.

If you would like our complete list of activities you can do during Advent & Christmas, enter your name & email below. I’d be happy to send our Christmas Unit Study to you at no cost to you. This offer expires at the end of December. After that, it will be $9.97.

If you’re stressed out with homeschooling during the holidays, I highly recommend taking a break from formal academics by integrating Advent and Christmas into your homeschool activities TODAY!

How do you “quit” homeschooling for December, but allow your kids to still learn through Advent and Christmas activities? Try our Christmas Unit Study above.

    1. Shandie,
      I am sorry for the email issues and for this very tardy reply. I was babysitting grandkids and just now seeing your comment. I submitted your email address and the Unit Study should be on its way. I apologize again for the tardiness in getting this to you.

    1. Tracey,
      I’m sorry for a late reply. I was babysitting grandkids and just now saw this one. I will have the Unit Study sent to you. I’m sorry you don’t see the sign up form on the post. Sometimes it is blocked by ad blockers.

    1. Tracy,
      I hope it is helpful. I struggled often during the holidays and want to share tips I learned along the way.

    1. Jennifer,
      I’m sorry the form was not showing up for you. Our tech team fixed it and I signed you up. By now, you should receive an email with the unit study. Thanks for your interest.

  1. Hi, I’m interested in the Christmas Unit Study, but wondering what ages it’s most appropriate for? My kids are 10, 7, & 4

  2. Hello,

    I know this post is a few years old, so I wasn’t sure if the Christmas Unit study was still available. The link appeared on the “3 Clues to Keep Christ in Christmas” confirmation page. I’m not seeing the form to fill out, but if this is still available, I’d enjoy getting a copy of it.

    Thanks and God’s blessings!
