It's Christmas time! Ready for some Christmas reading and writing activities? With a craft and a little holiday fun thrown in?
The Legend of the Christmas Spider is a fictional Christmas tale from Germany describing how the origins of tinsel. I have rewritten this story into a foldable mini book - with words and pictures to color. There are two versions of this Christmas story included (both in mini-book form). First is the more modern version with a visit from Santa and second, the original Christmas version with the Christ Child.
Also included in the mini-unit are instructions for making the foldable; a full page version of the story for those who have trouble folding; several craft ideas for making Christmas spiders; and a set of Christmas themed worksheets covering skills such as a summary tree; comprehension multiple choice and constructed response questions; spider fact and opinion; a writing activity page; and a story sequencing page.
