If you are like me, you are always looking for fun, standards-based activities around the holiday season. There are plenty of great ones out there, but none seem quite rigorous enough for the new Common Core standards. So, I decided to create my own. With this product, students will read and reread the familiar Christmas poem “’Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Then, they can complete any of the eight Common Core aligned worksheets. Thus, students are still having fun with the holidays while meeting academic standards. Worksheet topics include the following: using context clues, clarifying meaning, text structure, using text evidence, determining theme, figurative language, imagery, explanatory writing, and poetry writing.
