This is a standards-based product with text from Clement Clarke Moore's Christmas poem, A Visit From St. Nicholas (1837). In my product, students are provided space to illustrate the story on each page to match the meaning of the activities described.
Only the teacher’s packet cover, page borders, and student glossary have clip art. Twelve vocabulary words are boldface typed within the poem with definitions provided in a glossary. The purpose is to have students read it to their parents or other students in the school.
This was a popular activity I used in my 3rd Grade class during language arts. Students were eager to learn the new words such as sugarplums, kerchief, and sash, so that they could accurately illustrate their self-made booklet. This would make an excellent literacy center independent project. After creating the books, my students read their books to other staff at school. The standards for Grade 2 and higher require that you record the stories or poems.
This activity correlates to the following Common Core State Standards (CCSS) on K-5 Speaking and Listening Standards.
