This packet is complete with activities celebrating Clement Clark Moore’s Christmas poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas.” Students analyze the famous poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” in double-entry format. A history of the original St. Nicholas is included, as well as a vocabulary handout and answer key. PowerPoint presentations in the ExC-ELL format for imagery, compare and contrast, simile and metaphor, and personification. A final assessment and answer key are also included.
These activities are scaffolded and differentiated: teacher decides on groupings for analyzing the text, and teacher decides on vocab definitions for differentiating. Duration depends on teacher objectives: usually one to two class periods.
