ESL Christmas Story Recall is a simple activity for young learners. Students are told or watch a short video about a Christmas story. Then, in pairs or groups they try to rewrite the story and then retell it. This is a fun activity to get students speaking and writing on the topic of Christmas.
Alternatively, you can print out the story and cut it up. Students have to try to put the story back into the correct order. Then, they watch again and see if they put it back together correctly. With lower level students print pictures of the story and have them put them into the correct order.
