This is a Christmas Poetry passage with Task Cards and a Language/Writing reindeer-themed activities. A short, mini-unit for your Literature Center.
This makes a quick, attractive display.
The extract is the 5 descriptive verses of the reindeer, from CC Moore's poem "A Visit from St Nicholas" that we probably now know better as "T'was the Night before Christmas."
The 4 Task Cards involve reading and some higher order thinking, sequencing and justification.
The reindeer activity involves re-arranging letters to find reindeer names, then a cut and paste activity to join the reindeer in order to display.There is an answer sheet.
Print and laminate a copy of the poem and the cards for long life.
I introduce the unit with photocopies of the poem then students can progress to the task cards and activity.
I have other Christmas Resources.
