PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Poetry is a natural choice for fun cloze activities. These two Christmas poems are my own original work. Each poem comes with two cloze activity choices: one with a word bank and one without. Check out the thumbnails for details.The second poem has an alternate version. The setting for that poem is either home, or school. The rest of the poem is basically the same.

The first poem reflects upon Santa's round-the-world Christmas journey. The second poem is a slightly frenzied take on some of the many, many crafts I coerced my mom into making with me at Christmas as a young child. It would be 6:30pm on a Sunday night and I'd say "Mom, can we make a craft?" She'd say "Now???", but she was a teacher (I'm a third generation teacher) and she'd soon catch the spirit. Out came the paper, glue, boxes of old decorations, scraps of this and that, and next thing we knew it was way past my bedtime. Those are some of my best memories! You teachers will recognize most of these crafts and so will your students! This poem has a steady rhythm which is perfect as a tongue twister. Try reading it faster and faster and you go along, to simulate all the crafting craziness.

I just thought of a fun idea. Assign a few kids to each underlined word (the blanks) and when it's time to say that word, the assigned students say it. Or, you could read the poem and the class says all the underlined words together when it's time.

Merry Christmas!
