covers 15 popular Christmas books so you can pick and choose which ones to use. The premise of the packet is this: I have included 2-3 activities for
each book—generally a craftivity (with patterns/templates included) and a literacy activity—a graphic organizer, a noun/verb sort, etc. I suggest you go ahead and run off all necessary copies, gather colored paper and other supplies, etc. Then, gift wrap the book plus all of the necessary materials together. I actually wrapped
all 15 books and activity sets myself. There are 15 school days before Christmas break, so we will open one book each day. I will let the leader
choose which book to open. Then, we will complete the activities after reading the book. Or, you can simply use it for the 12 Days leading up to Christmas break
instead of 15 days. There is a ton of flexibility with how you use this! You can even gift wrap one book a day so you can manage your lesson plans better and
you know exactly which book and activities to expect! You can download the preview at TPT to see exactly which books are included and which activities are included!
