This Bundle Product includes the following:

Christmas Counting and Numbers for PreK-G1

This Christmas Themed Mathematics Activity Book is geared towards children who are in the early stages of learning; more appropriately preschool to grade 1 although activities can be adapted for older or younger children. The activities are fun, illustrated with exciting Christmas themes and so break the monotony that can and often do occur during learning time. The beauty of this book is that it can travel! It can be used as an activity during long car travel, or even for those couple of hours in an evening when everyone wants and needs their own space.

In the activities in this book the learner is working towards inter alia the following Assessment Standards: Learning Outcome – Numbers, Operations & Relationships, Development of Early Critical Thinking Skills, Development of Fine Motor Skills, Recognition and use of Numbers individually and in Multiples of 1, 2, 3, and possibly 4. At the end of this series of workbooks the following are quite attainable by the very early learner:

  • Counts to at least 20 numbers reliably;
  • Solves & can explain practical problems that involve sharing & grouping with whole numbers to at least 20;
  • Utilises critical thinking skills in trying to solve simple addition problems that require concentration and focus;
  • Counts in multiples of 2, and 3 reliably;
  • The learner is also working towards repeated addition with whole numbers and counts to at least 20 numbers reliably;
  • The learner recognises the symbol and the word of numbers zero to twenty, but can possibly recognise higher numbers. Use of the word wall and flash cards are indispensible in these areas.
  • The learner is practicing simple addition and subtraction;
  • He or she is counting to numbers as high as 30 in multiples of 2’s and 3’s (This is an additional exercise and a child enjoys pushing his or her own envelope.)
  • The child also works towards picture/word/number recognition and uses his or her creativity to reinforce their knowledge and recognition of number sequencing when undertaking fun dot-to-dot and colouring exercises.
  • Drawing, counting, cutting, pasting, number patterns, number games and sequencing all assist in the development of a young child’s fine motor skills.

Christmas Counting and Numbers for G1-2
The work is curriculum-based on research on the Assessment Standards utilised in South Africa. I am personally a fan of allowing every child to develop at his or her own pace and focus on the enhancing of those areas where clearly the child is steps ahead and gently encouraging and focusing on those areas where guidance and gentle assistance are required. Our aim is to make every activity fun and so encourage a love of learning.

In the activities in this book the learner is working towards inter alia the following Assessment Standards: Learning Outcome – Numbers, Operations & Relationships. Multiplies of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and possibly 6:

  • Counts to at least 34 numbers reliably;
  • Solves & can explain practical problems that involve sharing & grouping with whole numbers to at least 35 & then with solutions that include remainders;
  • Utilises critical thinking skills in trying to solve problems that require concentration and focus;
  • Counts in multiples of 2, 3, 4, 5 and possibly 6 reliably;
  • The learner is also working towards repeated addition with whole numbers and counts to at least 34 numbers reliably;
  • The learner recognises the symbol and the word of numbers zero to thirty four, but can possibly recognise higher numbers. Use of the word wall and flash cards are indispensible in these areas.
  • The learner is practicing simple multiplication and division;
  • He or she is counting to numbers as high as 100 in multiples of 5’s and 10’s (This is an additional exercise and a child enjoys pushing his or her own envelope.
  • The child also works towards picture/word/number recognition and uses his or her creativity to reinforce their knowledge and recognition of number sequencing.

Christmas Picture Dictionary Activity Book

In the activities in this book the learner is working towards inter alia the following Assessment Standards: Learning Outcome – Letters, Words/Picture Association & Relationships, Development of Early Critical Thinking Skills, Development of Fine Motor Skills, Recognition and use of words individually and alphabetically. At the end of this workbook the following are quite attainable by the very early learner:

  • Recognises and associates certain words with pictures;
  • Recognises and associates certain letters with pictures and/or words;
  • Uses critical thinking skills particularly during Wordsearch activities;
  • Recognises words in alphabetical order.
  • The child also works towards picture/word/number recognition and uses his or her creativity to reinforce their knowledge and recognition of number sequencing when undertaking fun dot-to-dot and colouring exercises.
  • Drawing, counting, cutting, pasting, word games and sequencing all assist in the development of a young child’s fine motor skills and early critical thinking skills.

The Christmas Child, A Comprehensive Unit Study for All Grades

The Christmas Dinner – An activity Play for Children

The Christmas Story as Told in the Bible

This 105 Page educational eBook focuses on the Story of the Birth of Christ as told in the KJV Bible. This is a complete Unit Study of the Birth , and included are fun exercises to take away any monotony that may arise (and often does) with copywork. Standard fonts have been used for general copywork, and Tracing Fonts have been used for the younger learner. Training lines and standard lines will be found throughout the book, which focuses on the entire passages of the Bible, but reinforces certain aspects of the birth which will already be familiar to your child when hearing the Sotry of the Birth of Christ.

Included in the book are the full verses from the Bible, including standard and tracing fonts, standard lines, training lines, and a variety of lined and themed notebooking pages and frames to be used according to your child’s ability and age. Copywork pages vary from 2 stanzas upwards. There is also a comparison between the two variations in Matthew and Luke of the Nativity. A Nativity Lapbook Craft is included in the book. Beautiful colour and black and white illustrations complete a comprehensive , informative and fun complete Unit Study.

Christmas Stories and Legends – Timeless Christmas Tales

No greater teaching force has ever been discovered than the story and no one has ever lived who used that force so skilfully as did our Great Teacher. It is not strange then, that among all the stories that have ever been written or told none are so dear to us as stories and legend which centre in His Birth. Great care has been taken in compiling this little volume and each story has its own sweet lesson. They will proveattractive and helpful at any time during the year.

Holidays Blessings to One and All
