This is what the third annual ABCs of Homeschooling Through the Holidays series is all about: sharing ideas, resources, and encouragement with fellow homeschooling families to make the very most out of the beauty of the Christmas season.

“R” is for Reading through the Holidays
During the holiday season, I switch out our regular homeschool reading selections for holiday-themed books. Beginning around mid-November, I pull out some old and new favorites to use for our daily read aloud time. The library is a wonderful resource for finding holiday themed books, and our bookmobile even has a special shelf for them when they come around, so it’s super easy to put together a holiday collection. I pile our holiday choices in a basket, but if you’re really motivated, you could wrap each book like a gift and have kids open one each day leading up to Christmas, like a countdown calendar.
