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!!
Also check out the ULTIMATE Christmas Bundle by clicking here!
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 songs included will allow students to think deeply using the questions that are based on the songs, as well as to further their understanding of how to pick text apart.
The 2 bundled songs with close read questions included are:
*"Where Are You Christmas," by Faith Hill (from the Grinch)
*"The Grinch's Theme Song" (You're a Mean One...)
Song lyrics, 8 close reading questions per song, 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.
Thanks for looking!!
