The Amazing Christmas Extravaganza by David Shannon is the perfect picture book for the holiday season! With gorgeous illustrations and a wonderful message about the holidays, it is sure to keep your students motivated to read and dig deep into comprehension strategies. The book companion literacy packet is Common Core Aligned and offers black line or low color ink pages as well as color. I have newly added two craftivities to demonstrate knowledge of the story elements. These craftivities are a huge value as they can be used with any Christmas book.
*Christmas Tree Story Element Craftivity (for use with any Christmas book)

*Decorate Christmas Tree and Describe G.O. (color and black line)
