Traditional Carols That Tell the True Story of Jesus' Birth
You've sung these Christmas carols--now discover their rich stories! This four-week, multi-media curriculum reintroduces kids to the story of Christmas through these beloved carols. Each interactive lesson reveals God's plan: Jesus!
Tell A Friend
Perfect for mixed-age classes of elementary kids, lessons are flexible and can be adapted to a variety of classroom formats.

The songs of Christmas provide more than holiday cheer. For hundreds of years, traditional carols have told the true story of Jesus' birth--and they have stories of their own to tell! Use these lessons to share the songs, the stories, and God's plan to send a Rescuer to the world that very first Christmas.
Each lesson weaves together Scripture, biblical context, hands-on experiences, discussion, history, and beloved Christmas songs. There's a little something for everyone! We've kept supplies simple so you can spend time building friendships with kids instead of prepping supplies.
Songs of the Christmas Story lessons also incorporate four kid-focused Christmas carol music videos with fresh musical arrangements that capture the joy and wonder of Jesus' birth.

Q: Is there a way to just download and pay for the music videos? We already have a curriculum for the month of December, but I would like to purchase the 4 music videos for our worship time. Can I purchase a download of these?

A: We do not have the music videos available apart from the curriculum. You can however, go to Amazon or iTunes and purchase the mp3 audio files of the songs. The songs with vocals and just the instrumental tracks are available there. You would search GroupMusic and then either the titles of the songs or "Christmas".

Q: What is the location of the music videos - it's not a Christmassy background? The music videos seem to be set in a Western theme background - this seems an unusual choice for Christmas. Is there a reason for this? Some type of connection to the curriculum as to why this theme? I know know my kids will ask what's up with this.

A: We had to film these in July to make it available by Christmas. Here in Colorado, there isn't any snow left in July. Also we wanted people to be able to use these year round, not just Christmas time. And lastly, not everyone has a traditional Christmas look for the holidays. Some of our southern states, and other parts of the world who use our resources don't experience a typical white Christmas.

"I am super impressed with this curriculum. The activities are presented in a fun, engaging way that I think our kids will really enjoy. Additionally, the songs included are AMAZING! I have been searching for quality Christmas songs for years and have not had great luck. When I heard that Group was releasing four BRAND NEW Christmas songs, I knew I had to look into it, and I can tell you, they did not disappoint! The songs are beautifully made but still kid-friendly!
