PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I have use the Christmas Sense Poem for years. This is a great project to do with all ability levels. Students can shine with the rich vocabulary that they use. Besides doing a layered book, I also have students type the poem and I place it on the back of an ornament that they have painted. On one side is the poem and on the other I place their school picture and the date. It is a great keepsake for parents.
For the ornament, you can also use die cuts, decorate, and laminate or I use wooden ornaments from a local craft store and have the students paint them. I use decoupage to give the ornament a glossy look and that helps to secure the poem and picture.
I included paper for students to hand write their poem if you are short on time and do not want to create the craft or book. When my class teams with the first grade class, this is the project we do. My fourth graders help the first graders do the brain storm on the rough draft sheet, and then the first graders write their poems on the paper. With first grade, we use less adjectives. Use the parts you would like and enjoy!
Included in this packet:
*list of prepositions
*list of Christmas nouns
*list of Christmas adjectives
*graphic organizers
*rough draft sheet
*writing sheets
