Christmas Gap-fill Exercise

Here’s a fun ESL activity for Christmas – a gap-fill exercise based upon a song that your students are guaranteed to find funny: “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.”

This worked really well for me because I’d just been teaching my students about house vocabulary (lesson coming soon) and so they were tested on “stairs” and “bedroom.” I also prefaced this activity with a Christmas vocabulary PPT┬áso they knew “santa” and so forth.

The worksheet is pretty self-explanatory. Just play the song (I like the Jackson 5 version because, in China, people are crazy about Michael Jackson) and get them to fill in the blanks.
