Greetings of the season my friends!
It's my second day of "staying away from the shopping fray" so I thought I'd recycle this blog post from two years ago and share some holiday humor along with one of my favorite December holiday resources!
Hopefully this parody of C. Clement Moore's classic 'Twas the Night Before Christmas will help make the teaching days ahead a little easier for you!
Know that I took a LOT of poetic license with some of the rhymes, so just bear with me! Hopefully,
Sr. Mary Rose Krupp--my senior high creative writing teacher--will forgive me! Here goes.....
when all through the school.
Not too many children
which was really not cool.
The teachers were trying,
to make activities fun.
The kids just weren't learning!
They wanted lessons to be done.
Then along came some riddles,
some with silly pictures and clues.
Thinking skills and highlighters were
encouraged and ready to be used!
Solving the mysteries made reading and writing,
all the more focused and oh so delighting!
Some kids worked together, some worked alone.
No one left their seats or around the room did they roam.
They used inside voices, and laughed at the jokes.
The pictures were of some pretty funny holiday folks!
They colored and drew, and wrote their own riddles too!
Then asked their neighbor to try and solve their new clues!
If you'd like to try these act-i-vi-ties,
then head to my store.....Jennifer Reynolds...on T-p-T!
There's also a FREEBIE tucked in this post,
to show you that I appreciate you, my customers, the most!
As always, thank you for sharing my story! Continue to teach your children well, hold a song in your heart, always find time for a rhyme, wish upon a star, and keep smiling!
to scoop up both riddle packs
as well as this one too!
May your holidays be merry and bright!
