HELP: Christmas words from A to Z

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am trying to compile a list of Christmas words for each letter of the alphabet. My students are going to create their own A to Z Christmas books as a langauge arts lesson. I still need words for Q, X, and U. I could use a few more words for these letters: Y, A, I, and O. I am in pretty good shape on the other letters. If anyone has an entire list they can email me here is my address:
vlconrad50@yahoo.com

THANKS FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE ME
HAPPY HOLIDAYS

How about Quiet, Quaint, Quilt, Quality.

The only thing I can think of for X is xylophone.

Under, Uplifting, Underwear , Useful, Understanding.

Yule, Yummy, Year, Yesterday.

Anticipation, Apple, Aunt, Another.

Icicle, Inspiring, Intimate, Ideal.

Open, Offer, Outstanding, Overload.

Cute idea for building vocabulary! Mind if I borrow it?

Valerie -

I too would love to receive a copy of your list when you finish it.

In terms of words --- some letters are harder for sure --

How about the standard "x" type words - like "x-citing" "x-trespecial" I would probably also go with the x-mas, as it is commonly used.

For A -- angel, adorable, advent, animals, assembling, aromas

Y - yarn, yams, yuletide or yule log

I - iced cookies, ivy

O - ornaments, opening

U - Unity


Sounds like a great project

mrsb203---I thought of x-mas but would never want my studetns or my community to think I was leaving Christ out of Christmas. I am going with xylophone so far---will have the music teacher drag one out to show the kids.
