This ESL PowerPoint presentation for beginning language learners introduces Christmas symbols by first asking students to identify commonly known US landmarks (the White House, Disney World) that are decorated for Christmas. Students will identify 25 Christmas symbols (angel, candle, etc.) and focus on spelling each symbol. The last slides of the presentation spotlight the silent "gh" word family through the story of the first Christmas. You can download 2 Christmas word searches that use the same vocabulary for free and download a $3.00 Lesson Plan that includes corresponding handouts and a Christmas symbols puzzle.
