Music for Christmas School in Your Homeschool

Who’s doing Christmas School in your homeschool this December? What’s Christmas School, you say? Well, it’s a time to do something fresh and new and different during the busy December season. One option is to change your curriculum choices to be holiday-related. Or, maybe you keep your regular curriculum but add in some extras such as art, cooking, or music. Here are some tips on incorporating music into your Christmas school lessons.

Music Lesson Ideas for Christmas School in Your Homeschool

Use a Music Appreciation Curriculum

The simplest way to incorporate music into your homeschool is to use a music appreciation curriculum. There are many different options available, so you can find one that fits your family’s needs and interests. Many music appreciation courses include CDs or streaming access to great classical pieces, as well as lesson plans and activities to help your children understand and enjoy the music. Try Music of Christmas, which has three years of courses to choose from!

Make a Christmas Playlist

Another great way to incorporate music into your homeschool for Christmas School is to make a Christmas playlist. You can find lots of great Christmas music online; YouTube and Spotify are my favorites. Be sure to include some classics, like “Silent Night” and “Joy to the World,” as well as some modern favorites. You can even have your kids help make the playlist!

Sing Together as a Family

One of the best ways to enjoy music together as a family is to sing together! It’s easy to play Christmas carols while you’re making dinner or doing chores so everyone will start to hear the songs. Then, use a curriculum such as Christmas Carols Made Easy to learn some vocal technique and even Christmas songs in foreign languages!

Go Christmas Caroling

One of my fondest memories growing up was going Christmas caroling. My youth group at church would get together to practice the songs for a bit and then load into the van and drive around to sing at different church members’ homes — usually those who were home-bound due to various infirmities. They were so happy to see us and it brought us a lot of joy, too. Pick some of your family’s favorite Christmas carols and sing them together. Head to a nursing home or see if your church has a list of home-bound members who could use a visit. (We usually just stayed singing at the front door–no need to go in if they aren’t expecting you.) This is a great way to bond as a family and get everyone in the holiday spirit! Plus, it’s a great way to teach your kids about different ways to serve others.

Put on a Play or Skit

Another fun way to add music to your homeschool is to put on a play or skit. Have your kids write their own script or adapt one from a favorite Christmas movie or story. Then, create some simple costumes and props and put on a show for the whole family! This is a great way to get everyone involved and have some fun while learning about music and theater.
