"Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house ..."
This poem has become a tradition and a well loved part of Christmas today. Scripted for five voices, and Santa, this script can be performed in an assembly or Christmas pageant.
Notes are included for vocabulary and background for the poem. Teaching suggestions are also offered for vocal expression and interpretation to help students go beyond the words to find the 'voice' that enables the audience to enjoy the story. While this is not a teacher manual, it is a guideline for moving students towards more effective and expressive communication.
