PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Follow up a whole class read-aloud of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas with this fun and festive grammar activity! ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Roll & Sort activity lets kids practice and assess the concept of categorizing words by their part of speech (COMMON NOUNS, PROPER NOUNS, VERBS, and ADJECTIVES) in an engaging and hands-on way.
In this activity, partners will each receive their own set of sorting mats, as well as word cards highlighting words from the original ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas poem (1822) by Clement Clarke Moore. Students will take turns rolling a 6-sided die and using the key on the activity's instructions to understand the meaning of each number they roll. Some numbers will prompt them to choose a word card with a certain part of speech (COMMON NOUN, PROPER NOUN, VERB, or ADJECTIVE), which they must place on the correct sorting mat. Other numbers will prompt students to remove a word card or skip a turn. The object of the game is to be the first student to have all of his/her cards sorted correctly on their mat.

You can use this activity with your whole class, by assigning each student to a partner, or with just a few partnership as a center rotation. A perfect way to keep children engaged before their holiday break or to use as holiday party activity!
