Many students struggle with and need practice using context clues. This is a fun seasonal activity that teaches students to use context clues as they translate an alien's language in his first ever letter to Santa.
Students read Xomorra the alien's letter to Santa. There are several words that Xomorra does not know as he is new to Earth and the English language. Students must help Xomorra by translating his "alien" words by using their context clues to figure out what Xomorroa is trying to say.
