Reading Activity

Now that you’ve studied the words, try to do this reading activity. In place of the emoji, say the Christmas word that you learned.

Practice reading those sentences a few times once you’re sure you’ve got the right emoji. Then, do your best to talk or write about Christmas without looking at any of the words. Hopefully the visual image of the emoji will help you remember the words more easily.

Thanks to the fine folks at EmojiOne for their amazing emojis, and Merry Christmas everyone!
