I love Christmas songs!!

Christmas singing interactive song choice board autism spectrum teacher

Here is a free interactive PowerPoint choice board that links straight to Christmas songs on YouTube.

When the image is pressed, it opens the video on YouTube. This allows the child/ children to make a choice from a selection of songs.

Choice making encourages communication. Whether your child or children will communicate through pointing, touching, saying a word or sentence, visual choice making gives you the opportunity to model the necessary communication. For example, if your child communicates through saying words, you can model the name of the song or a sentence such as “I choose Jingle Bells!”. If your child communicates through pointing, you can model making a choice by pointing to a song picture.

This can be great in a class or group setting, on an interactive whiteboard or at home on a computer or laptop. 

The 6 songs featured on this resource are favourites of some of the young children I have taught and they are:

  • Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
  • Dancing Christmas Tree
  • Rocking Around the Christmas Tree
  • Jingle Bells (Singing Hands)
  • 5 Little Elves
  • Winter Wonderland

The images and links can easily be changed on PowerPoint to insert your children’s favourite songs by changing the ‘hyperlink’.

I always love to do some singing with the children at some point in the day and they really enjoy singing with multi-sensory resources, objects and pictures!
