Thank you for your interest in this “Christmas Analogies” product! Analogies give students a wonderful opportunity to build their vocabulary and develop higher level critical thinking, skills that benefit learners in all subject areas. These analogies offer your students the opportunity to practice these strategies using the high interest holiday season. theme.
This packet includes 3 worksheets, each with 10 analogies to complete. A word box is included to support your students’ success as they explore word relationships. Your students will be challenged to discover many ways in which words can be categorized. I intentionally repeated some vocabulary words in order to encourage students to think about word relationships. For example, how Santa sounds is exemplified in:
Ho! Ho! Ho! : Santa : : _______________ : bells
However, in the following analogy students need to think about the physical characteristics of Santa:
________: Santa :: fur : reindeer
Answer keys are included for the 3 worksheets to make grading quick & easy.
