The holidays are such a great time of year, but it can be super hectic to fit in all the learning that needs to happen between the excitement, the sugar, and the crazy schedules. One way that you can get in some end-of-year learning is to incorporate movies into your studies. Doing a watch-and-learn unit is a way to give you a break, but it also changes up the schedule enough to keep the interest of the kids.

Get a Charlie Brown Christmas (AFFILIATE)One of my favorite holiday movies is A Charlie Brown Christmas. It’s such an awesome reminder of a season of giving and has many great discussion points. This makes it a fantastic watch-and-learn option for the holidays.

One of the things that inspired me to look up Charlie Brown lessons and activities is that my daughter is obsessed with Charlie Brown. If you’re looking for some great Charlie Brown Christmas ideas, too,  check these out:
