Usually we take off the better part of December from schooling. And this year, I didn’t think would be any different. However, it has become increasingly clear to me that Mister Bull needs to keep structure in his daily schedule. But, with the holidays so close together, two family weddings and so much emotion this year I knew we needed something to keep him busy. Even if it was just a page or two a day and some reading. That’s when I decided to make my own Christmas Unit Studies.
I am super excited to share my dual Unit Study with you today. I have combined the Christmas Tree and Saint Nicholas Unit Studies into one. But, there are separate pages for each. I know some people continue the tradition of Santa Claus, so this unit study tells the history of the infamous Saint Nicholas from the 3rd century.
You are welcome to use all or part of this unit study as you wish. We do not “do Santa” (that’s for another post), but I wanted Mister Bull to understand what Saint Nicholas was/is all about. So I add his history into this unit study. Here are some additional printables you can use in conjunction with this Unit Study.

12 Days of Christmas Math Story Problems (3rd – 8th grades)
Christmas Word Problems (Intermediate and Middle School)
Mama’s Learning Corner has rounded up some GREAT printables here.
We also love reading to our children especially during the cold winter days of December and sitting around the fire. We love reading different stories of Advent, Christmas traditions and some fun favorites too. This is also a great time to talk to your kids about the True Reason for the Season – Jesus! We like to use our own Nativity set to teach our kids about the story of Jesus’ birth and then let them retell the story to help make it stick.
