This booklet is based on classic poem T'was the Night Before Christmas. It has beautiful clip art by Apples and Acorns, and includes illustrated pages of the poem with questions about word usage at the bottom of many of the pages. Students are encouraged to interpret language usage in this poem. Be sure to keep a notepad handy for the incredibly sweet comments you'll receive as you discuss each part of the poem! This activity has traceable text that is perfect for "magic writing", or tracing. ELA Standards addressed are RL.K.3-RL.K.9, with a little counting and the number word eight thrown in when the eight tiny reindeer are introduced in the poem. I can't wait to use this activity!
