I love reading this story every year at Christmas time! Perhaps you read a book by the same title....there are so many unusual words in the text....such a perfect time to throw in some vocabulary activities!
This set of materials will help you go over some of the rich vocabulary that is in the poem.
THIRTY different vocabulary words along with definitions from the poem.
Stirring, nestled, visions, sugar plums, kerchief, clatter, spring, shutters, sash, luster, midday, miniature, lively, coursers, obstacle, hoof, bound, tarnished, soot, bundle, peddler, droll, encircled, broad, plump, jolly, dread, sprang, down of a thistle, exclaim!
Picture Cards to go along with the story....I suggest using these for story time participation activities!
**In the set of picture cards, there are black and white versions of the Santa-Saint Nick, mother, father, children and the elf.
I think it’s important to use pictures that show people of different ethnicity.
