My kids loved the Close-Reads we completed with today's hit music, so I thought it was about time to continue this activity with Christmas and holiday music!!
This is my ALL TIME FAVORITE Christmas song by one of my favorite bands- Sugarland!!
My students love music as much as I do and close reading can be difficult, so why not start deep reading with something that students love? The song included will allow students to think deeply using the questions that are based on the song, as well as to further their understanding of how to pick text apart.
Song lyrics, 6 close reading questions, and theme/author's purpose/analyzing text graphic organizers are all included with this guide.
The lyrics, the metaphors, and the overall theme of these songs will create conversation with your students which will have them thinking deeply while reading and listening to the lyrics.
Song lyrics can be used without copyright infringement. The actual musical versions of the songs are NOT included in this package. There are all available from iTunes and other online media sources for $1.29 (or less) each.
Thanks for looking!!
