Students always love Mooseltoe by Margie Palatini (illustrated by Henry Cole)! After reading the story, I love to have students create this perfectly perfect craft and writing activity.
Students write out Moose's to-do list, then make him the Christmas tree, just like his family did!
This craft is also great to use after reading Moosetache by the same author. Just leave off the decorations and add a retelling or response to literature!
