Christmas is a wonderful time of year!
Our littlest learners love talking about all the exciting things they want to do during the holiday season: seeing Santa, what new toy they are hoping to get this year, and decorating the classroom and their home. We enjoy visiting the Christmas tree farm and of course decorating our tree is a big deal!
Christmas trees come in so many different shapes and sizes kids can’t help but be fascinated by them. Students are so proud to decorate their trees, they talk about their trees all day long.
We make puzzle piece snowflake ornaments and are even able to incorporate some science into our salt crystal ornaments. Kids get so excited about bringing their art pieces home to hang up and their families can cherish their masterpieces for years to come.
To connect literacy with Christmas trees we play our Christmas Tree blend puzzles. To strengthen our student’s writing skills, we get the creative juices flowing with our under the tree writing prompts. You can’t help smiling or laughing with their responses.
Our students feel accomplished when they master spelling their name. To bring Christmas together with this skill, I’ve created this Christmas Editable Name Activity so our youngest learners can practice building their name in a hands-on way!

Getting the Christmas Editable Name Activity Ready
This winter-themed editable printable is easy to prep. After you purchase the activity and download it, you’ll need to open the document with the most up to date version of Adobe.
First, you will type out the name of your student (or child) in the highlighted space on the tree. Then you will spell out that name on the ornaments, using one letter per ornament.
Using the Christmas Editable Name Activity
Students will have their own tree and ornaments with their name. You can store their pieces in Ziploc baggies so pieces are easier to keep track of.
Students will first look at their name on the tree. This helps guide little learners to recognize their name and associate it with it in print.
To start the name activity they can place all of their pieces on a table or on the floor. Students will then start decorating their tree with the ornaments from the pile until their name is built. This student’s name is “Sarah.”
To differentiate for older students, you can leave the tree blank and students can build their name on their own. You can also leave everything blank and have students write the letters on the ornaments with markers or vis-a-vie markers, where they can then decorate their trees without any guidance at all.
Whether they are decorating their trees with the letters from their names or showing off mastering their name with their Christmas themed worksheets, your students will have a sense of accomplishment.
