Feeling the Joy of Christmas is easy with this fun little reader that your students will love. Each page was designed to focus on a specific story and/or illustration element, while practicing the skill of using descriptive & sensory words to add detail. This book was inspired by the wonderful and festive symbols of Christmas. Enjoy!! :)
