REVISED 12/5/15

Hello! Thank you for looking at Silly Santa’s Crazy Night! The story is about an exhausted Santa Claus who is so tired that he says funny things. Students can listen to the story and determine the absurdity as a listening comprehension – language processing activity and then provide the correct vocabulary word, demonstrating semantic knowledge.

I used a similar story with my students to help them develop semantic knowledge and auditory processing around a Thanksgiving theme and they not only loved the humor in it, but also demonstrated an improved focus and attention to language information, and retold some of the funny events of the story to their parents.

In this packet, I include a parent letter and response sheet for the students as a form of reflection, carry-over and review.

You can perform this lesson several ways. I often read the absurdities aloud to my students and then they work on listening and identifying the absurdities, and take turns providing the correct words.

My students just love them and it makes them laugh while learning, listening, reasoning and problem solving. There are 24 situation pages with at least two absurdities for each page, except for the first two and last one!

This is best used in small groups. The book can be printed a few times, but to save ink, it can be photocopied a few times and then you can give the response sheet in color!
