Product Description

Questions, complete text of the story A Chaparral Christmas Gift, and answer key for a secular holiday short story featuring Santa with themes of forgiveness and good triumphing over evil. This short sample gives you a taste of my longer, more comprehensive story and novel packets. Includes a range of multiple-choice and short answer comprehension questions; vocabulary; characterization with text support; and more. 35 questions for a short but close reading activity before winter break. O. Henry will always capture student attention! I have embedded within the text a few brief vocabulary definitions or explanations of early 20th century/western terms that are not on the worksheet. This story is in the public domain.

Virtually no prep! Ready to go for an engaging whole class activity before break, homework, extra credit, literature circles, read-along or a choice on a menu of holiday-related activities. Questions include comprehension, literary terms, interpretation, context clues and more.
