This Readers' Theater deals with the story behind the filling of Christmas stockings. It is religious and would not be appropriate for a public-school. The packet includes the Readers' Theater script and a writing assignment wherein the students will write stories behind popular Christmas items. This is great to do as a mini lesson. It also includes a link to a great video which showcases the story behind the candy cane---also religious. My students do the Readers' Theater and watch the video. Then, they do the writing assignment in groups, ultimately presenting to the class. This is a good lesson for those crazy days before Christmas Break. It worked well for my class, and I hope it works well for yours.
