This is a Christmas narrative, with Task Cards and a recording sheet. A short, mini-unit for your Literacy Center, that involves reading and higher order thinking. Activities include: reading on, predicting, creating, listing, designing, comparing, justifying.
The first text has missing words and a word bank for students to use to fill the spaces. There is an answer sheet with suggested answers.
The same text is repeated without the word bank, because this is a different skill that I like students to understand. They need to read the whole text, then read again, “reading on”, at least to the end of the sentence before filling in the spaces with suitable words.
This offers you a choice, I personally wouldn’t use both sheets for the same narrative.
Print and laminate a copy of the narrative, answer sheet and the cards for long life.
I introduce the unit with photocopies of the narrative with missing words first, for students to complete, then students can progress to the task cards.
There is a recording Sheet to track progress.
I do have other Christmas stories and resources, if you need.
