This packet targets 18 vocabulary words from the story. You can print a copy for each student, or you could use one set for the group. Students will match vocabulary words from the story to the correct synonyms. Students should be encouraged to use the context clues in the text and pictures. The cards with the mouse contain the words from the story, and the cards with the Santa hat are the synonyms.
For expressive language practice, the synonym cards can be removed. Students would use the context clues in the story to state a possible synonym. Also, students can create oral or written sentences with the vocabulary words.
An extra set of blank cards are included to target additional words.
