Christmas Comprehension Mini-Lessons

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. One of the reasons is because of all the fabulous children's books that are about Christmas. I love sharing these books with my kiddos and I have a big collection of them to share. With my schedule this year, my time to share books I love is very limited so I thought I'd develop some mini-lessons using those oh-so-important comprehension skills and share these wonderful holiday books with my students.

I'm in the process of developing mini-lessons on my favorite books and I've finished two packs this weekend. My first a cause and effect pack for "Olive, the Other Reindeer."


In this pack, you will find a detailed lesson plan, cause and effect posters, cause and effect response pages, a cause and effect matching game, and much more.

My next pack is for character traits for the book "Mooseltoe." 

This pack has lesson plans, an anchor chart idea with printables, character trait posters, character trait response sheets, character trait photo examples, and more.

I'm really loving this anchor chart for this set.
