Product Description
This is a great "day before the holiday" activity.
It's a wonderful activity for Christmas skeptics.

Before we get started...that's my baby girl with Santa on the cover. She's currently a senior at University of Pennsylvania. She's a lovely young woman who still believes in Santa!

It is a 9 page document, two pages are background provided for the teacher's introduction.

Included is the text of the article "Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus."
Activities included are:

---10 reading check questions,
---6 vocab words extracted from the article and set in a chart that requires
definitions based on context clues and original sentences,
---10 higher-order thinking questions,
---an acrostic requiring the listing of concepts associated with the holiday season,
---and an "exit ticket" requiring summary of the article.

There are 4 graphics including one of the original article.

This is a lovely activity for kids who may have become a bit jaded and
too cool for Santa. :}

It provides a refreshing perspective on the holiday season.

This activity is also available as a PowerPoint Presentation with beautiful, engaging graphics. Click here to read description and see the preview:
