The December homeschool calendar is complete!

I loved planning this month’s activities. Even though we’re only doing two weeks of homeschool, I’ve planned three weeks of activities. I love Christmas and I wanted to fit in as many fun, festive Christmas activities as I could.

If you want to have a light Christmas curriculum, you could always just focus on the letters and numbers of the month and then build the remainder of your curriculum with some ideas from my post about homeschooling through the Christmas season.

Are you excited?! I know I am! Here’s what’s planned for December!
