A Tree on The Door

I want to share another activity I did with my students last week.

I gave them a Christmas bauble template and told them they would do the following tasks: ( as we have recently done “perhaps”, “definitely”, “maybe” to talk about future)



  • Write the followings on your Christmas Tree Ornament, then decorate your ornament, cut it and hand in to your teacher. You will create a Christmas Tree on the wall.
  • Your name:
  • Presents you want to get at Christmas.
  • Presents you will give to your family and friends.
  • 2 things you will do during the Christmas break.
  • 5 things you will do in the New Year ( 2014)


I will also do “like” and “as” with another class tomorrow so I’m planning to assign them to write a poem on their baubles.

Here’s the skeleton of their poems

  • Christmas sounds like —
  • Christmas tastes like —-
  • Christmas feels like —
  • Christmas looks like —
  • Christmas smells like —
  • Christmas sounds like —-
  • Christmas is a time
  • When —

    The beauty of this idea is that classes with a wide range of proficiency levels can all make a great tree.
