Description

The Gift of the Magi is a heartwarming story of a young married couple who each sell his or her most prized possession to have money to buy a gift for his or her spouse. It makes a wonderful mini-unit to teach during the Christmas season.

What Level is the Story Unit?

Not only is the message a good one, but the book lends itself to covering a number of CCSS skills. The original story measures 6.1 grade equivalent; however, it is a little challenging for sixth graders with its Lexile rating at 940. Due to this, I have also included a simplified version that measures a 4.9 grade equivalent. I made sure that both versions of the story contain the same vocabulary words, making this a perfect unit for differentiated instruction.
