Dear Teacher,
I hope you enjoy these activities that bring the Grinch into your classroom to teach about fun-damental Language Arts concepts. I designed the activities to be used with the book, song, or either movie.These activities kept my students busy the week before Christmas break! It was wonderful for me to have them busy while still learning and practicing the Common Core Learning Standards. I hope your students enjoy the activities and have a wonderful holiday season!

Grinch Activities

Grinch Character Map
Students can fill out the character map with traits of the main character, The Grinch. To make this activity more challenging, use two different colors and compare the character traits of the Grinch at the beginning and end of the book/movie.

Grinch Literary Devices Search
Students read “The Grinch poem and identify the literary devices used. The song can also be played in the background to appeal to auditory learners. Students can use the reference sheet for help.

The included extension activity requires students to rewrite the Grinch Song - either using different literary devices or to demonstrate how the Grinch has changed.

Grinch Acrostic Poem
Students write an acrostic poem for the word GRINCH. This activity can focus on plot elements, character traits, or just allow students to write a poem about the character.

Grinch Discussion Questions
The questions can be used in several different ways - assign different groups questions to discuss and share, students choose prompts to respond to in a journal, whole group discussion, etc. I left a space on the left so you can cut out and laminate the questions and put them on a ring.

Grinch Writing Prompt & Writing Paper
Why does the Grinch hate the holidays? Have your students write the prequel to The Grinch. The writing paper can be used for other writing prompts or for other projects.

Letter to the Grinch
Students use the format of a friendly letter to try and convince the Grinch that the holidays aren’t that bad.
