Looking for something academic, but fun to do for Christmas? This close reading and analysis is a great, digital and interactive activity for use with Google Slides for the holiday.
Students focus on "The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry. Here is what they do:
- Listen and follow along to the story read aloud. They then write their thoughts on what they heard.
- Read the story, highlighting and commenting on specific reading/writing skills. (These can be edited to your liking).
- Watch a "Sesame Street" episode version of the story and respond to it. Bert and Ernie, guys!
- Compare the three interpretations.
All questions are editable!
