It's Lit Teaching


Want to add a little holiday fun to your classroom without straying too far from the curriculum? Trying to maintain rigor in those hard days before winter break, but also want to incorporate some seasonal creativity? This Holiday Characterization Analysis Worksheet can be used with ANY novel or story (even one written by your students!) and allows student to get creative while still analyzing text.

On one side of this worksheet, students will need to answer holiday-themed questions about their character using details from the text. On the other side, students will decorate a gingerbread man template to look like their character. These can then be used to create a seasonal bulletin board or display of your students work!
