Other teachers who tried this lesson said:

♥"LOVE this! This was a great lesson! My students loved this and I love the message that is taught. Some of my kids had heard the song but didn't know the meaning behind it."

♥"This was a great way to learn the week before Christmas break. My students would come in each day excited when they heard the song on the way to school. It provided meaningful discussions with their family members."

♥"Absolutely love this lesson. Had two students cry today when I played the song. Thoughtful and meaningful. Excellent. Another fabulous Julie product. There isn't anything I have bought of Julie's that hasn't been top-notch."
