Engage students in summarizing about story elements using your favorite Christmas or Holiday read alouds! Students will be begging to do this fun reading comprehension activity and craft each day. This also makes a great bulletin board or a fun reading center.

Ideas for Use: Read aloud one of your favorite holiday books each day. Then, either during center time, independent time, bell work, or whenever it works best for you, have students write a summary about the book you read. Afterward, let students create a simple and cute craft for each book. These make great bulletin boards or hallway decor during the winter months.
