I just LOVE this time of year, don’t you? The decorations, the feeling of good will towards one another, all the baking and cooking, and of course the Real Reason for the Season!
In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I would share some Christmas books with you. First is There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Bell! Kids love these books, maybe because of the outlandishness of the stories. How fun it would be to rewrite this story with the ideas of the students. As creative as they are I am sure they could come up with some really good ones!
The Puppy Who Wanted A Boy is an adorable story told from the perspective of a puppy who asks for a boy for Christmas. I love the twist that it is from the puppy’s point of view. It would make a great starting point of writing stories from other’s perspectives.
What are some of your favorite books and music to play during this time of year?
