Christmas time is jammed full with programs, parties, and even sometimes panic, right?! "How am I going to get my students interested in reading when all they want to do is eat cookies and talk about what they want for Christmas?" Instead of having the students read a book and write a report about it, how about challenging your students to read 12 books in the month of December to go along with the song the "12 days of Christmas." Students will get to decorate a Christmas tree with ornaments that list the names of the books they read. Plus you could make it a competition to see who can read the most!
