Christmas Flashcards. Part 1.

It’s not long before the Christian world will be getting ready for the most wonderful time of the year – Christmas. It will be a busy time for educators too. As an ESL teacher I dedicate a number of lessons to this major holiday. The occasion is good for getting kids acquainted with Christmas traditions in English-speaking countries as well as for introduction of some useful English vocabulary to students. I have designed a teaching materials kit to help kids learn and memorize the vocabulary related to Christmas, celebration customs and the season of the year. In this first blog post dedicated to Christmas ESL materials I’d like to share my set of printable Christmas flashcards designed to introduce the vocabulary.


Christmas Vocabulary


The flashcard set covers English nouns related to the most popular Christmas characters, Christmas food, decorations, winter season and relevant clothes. The flashcards feature the following words: angel, ball / bauble, bell, candle, candy, candy cane, carol, chimney, Christmas card, Christmas tree, decoration / ornaments, elf (elves), firecrackers, fireplace, fireworks, garland, gifts / presents, gingerbread, ham, holly, Jesus, lights, marshmallow, mistletoe, mittens, North Pole, party, party popper, pie, pine cone, poinsettia, present sack, pudding, reindeer, ribbon, Santa Clause , scarf, sleigh, snow, snow globe, snowball, snowflake, snowman, star, stocking, sweater / pullover / jumper, turkey, winter, wreath, Yule log.

Printable Flashcards


The Christmas flashcards have two parts: the picture part and the word part. Teachers can cut off the word to use the flashcards for different games and activities that suggest matching words to images. Such activities are conducive to fast vocabulary memorization and long-term retention.
