“The Twelve Days of Christmas ...Vacation”
Readers Theatre Script by Carol Montgomery
No Santa. No elves. Just twelve tongue-twisting days of Christmas... vacation. Based on the song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" ("12 Days of Christmas"), this rollicking rendition may motivate students to clean their rooms by the time they finish! The annotated curriculum links at the end even include math lessons for a variety of lesson plans. Perhaps YOUR students would have fun creating their own compositions of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"?
READING TIME: about 3 1/2 minutes
TONE: Light, even without Santa
READABILITY: (Flesch–Kincaid) grade 3.8 (artificially high due to longer sentences and the unspoken word “enthusiastically” at the end)
