The holidays are almost here! It's about time for winter break and students are getting antsy! This activity is a great way to both be excited for the coming break, and get some creative writing into your classroom.
First, you and your students will sing along and learn the classic carol, "12 Days of Christmas." Then you and your students will make up wacky and fun rhyming parodies of "12 Days of Christmas."
You are bound to get some creative answers to "On the first day of Christmas, my TEACHER gave to me..."
Students are also encouraged to illustrate the lyrics to their song with lots of color and creativity!
