Twas the Night Before Christmas & Traditions


Everyone knows the poem 'Twas the Night Before Christmas! What a great American Tradition! Did you know that it was written in 1823? 
There are several wonderful 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Apps at the iTunes Store! 
Here are a few of my favorites.

On Friday, December 7, 2012, Barbara Heinzman from the Thoughtful Classroom read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas to my students as a part of an Inductive Learning Lesson. 
Here is a
Synthesis Activity after her lesson:
Students used their "magic" pencils from Barbara to write!
What is your favorite family Christmas tradition?
























to read Christmas Traditions Around the World!


If you could add another tradition to share with your family at Christmas, what would it be?
























Words cards for Alphabetical Order and many more activities!
We will use the word cards to play HEAD BANZ!

We will also match word cards to definitions. 

We will either play a matching game or memory game with synonyms!


We will also FIND the words in the poem and highlight!
