This resource is directly related to its literature equivalent and filled with a variety of cross-curricular lessons to do before, during, and after reading the book. This reproducible book presents an exciting approach to teaching well-known literature!

I have used this for several years. I loaned my copy to another teacher friend and lost it. So I had to purchase it again. It wouldn't seem like Christmas without reading this story with my students. I do not use all of the activities, but many are aligned with common core.
I teach fifth grade, but have modified some of the activities and used them with second grade in the past. I love this product!

I teach adult ESL students who are very keen on reading authentic English texts. I found an easier version of "The Christmas Carol" and used this resource to discuss comprehension questions. Some of the material was not suitable for adults, but nonetheless, this has proved to be very helpful in guiding my students through a traditional Christmas story.
