Product Description
Christmas Close Reading Bundle contains 3 weeks of reading lesson plans that take a closer look at three special Christmas Stories, The Polar Express written by Chris Van Allsburg, Christmas Trolls by Jan Brett , and Yes, Virginia by Chris Pleha Buy 2 get one Free

All three packets will have you teaching till the end. Each packet focuses on reading standards. Character analysis is done through Christmas Trolls. The Polar Express focuses on illustrations and point-of-view, and Yes, Virginia looks closely at vocabulary and text-based questions. This standards approach to Christmas stories allows for a closer look at text and contains complete lesson plans, essential questions, formative and summative assessment options, and allows the busy teacher to teach in a more engaging manner. My hope for you and your students is children gain a love of reading, students get to dig deeper into text, and this saves you TIME in your busy life, while allowing you to enjoy the Holiday season with your class. Happy teaching!
