A seasonal variation of 'stop the bus'.
This PowerPoint resource involves students finding the names of various items in categories. The categories include
- elf's name
- angel's name
- item of winter clothing
- Christmas food
- toy or game
- TV programme or film
- item that can be found on an advent calendar
Students are placed into teams of 2-4. Teams choose, in turn, a letter via an 'advent calendar'. Behind each picture on the calendar is a letter. Teams have to think of one item to go in to each category beginning with the selected letter.
The first team to finish shouts “Santa – Stop the Sleigh!” If you have a bell a student pupil can run out to ring the bell to stop the game! As a timer, choose some popular Christmas music (particularly useful with q's, z's and'x's! Teacher can dress up as Santa to make it even more fun!
Teams score 1 point if they have an appropriate item in the category. They get 2 points if no other team has that word.
Suitable for older Special Education students and.......... some adults! Great for parties and games to play at home at Christmas.
