Christmas Online ESL Reward System (7 Boards)

  • $1.75

Your December rewards are sorted with this set of 7 rewards board for all ages and ability levels (including older students). These Christmas rewards are a hit in my online classroom every December and they are sure to be one in yours as well. They will provide a welcome break and a bit of fun throughout the lesson and give your students loads of vocabulary practice at the same time. Not only that, but they are great for extension activities and provide loads of opportunities for free talk with your student/s.

This resource is suitable for all online teachers, including ESL teachers who work with companies such as VIPKID, DadaABC, GoGoKid, SayABC, iTutorGroup and Whales English.


Two styles of rewards are included:

  • Christmas Tree Reward Boards- Great for younger students! Two of these are 'Find a Star' boards and two are 'What's on the Tree?' boards. Your young students will learn loads of Christmas vocabulary, including - reindeer, Santa, candy cane, elf, bells, stocking and present

  • Find a Star Board with Christmas Conversation Starters- These ‘Find a Star’ reward boards have been created for older or more advanced students. Each board contains four thought-provoking questions about Christmas that your student/s (and you, if you choose!) will answer. They provide an opportunity for free talk around the topic of Christmas and will give you and your student/s insight into how Christmas is celebrated in different countries.

What You Will Receive

  • 7 printable Christmas reward boards

  • Printable ornaments in three styles (with numbers, with colors and with a blank space on which you can write any skills / words you want your student/s to practice) for covering the Christmas Tree reward boards

  • Printable number squares for covering the Find a Star with Christmas Conversation Starters boards

  • Teachers' Notes- including instructions for preparing and using the reward systems in your online ESL lessons. 


    Preparing the Reward System

    These reward systems are quick and easy to prepare. Simply:

    1. Print the reward board that you would like to use and either the ornaments or number squares to cover the board.
    2. Cut out the ornaments or number squares.
    3. For extra durability, laminate the reward board and the ornaments/number squares.
    4. Place a piece of Blu Tack on the back of each ornament/number square.
    5. Your reward system is ready to use! Happy teaching! 

    Using the Reward System

    Place the reward board on a clipboard and stick the ornaments/number squares over each space. When your student/s perform well, say “Great Work!” and ask them to choose an ornament/number. Reveal what is underneath and say “Oh wow, you got a _________!” Remember to reward your student/s with a star in your teaching platform when they uncover a star. Use this reward system as an opportunity for extension activities. For example, each time you reward a student, ensure that you introduce a new vocabulary word or ask a question relevant to the object.
