This holiday card set uses the poem "The Night Before Christmas" as a way for students to recognize good paraphrasing. Students match lines from the original poem to paraphrased lines. The 56-line poem is organized into 4 sets of cards and designed for 4 student groups to match each part, then share the original and paraphrased poem with the whole class.
The thumbnails and preview show several pages of the cards and the poems. The punctuation has been simplified.
