For example in the picture attached to the blog the students are learning the poem, Five Little Reindeer
The students are learning their December vocabulary words through this poem.
I have the students put reindeer antlers on and a Santa hat. Each student learns the poem and then gives their voice to the part of the reindeers. They catch on so quick and they all love to participate!
Five little reindeer playing in the snow.
The first one said, "Let's go, go, go!"
The second one said, "I see snowflakes in the air."
The third one said, "Santa won't care."
The fourth one said, "Isn't Christmas time fun?"
The fifth one said, Let's run, and run, and run."
Then, Ooooh, went the wind and out went the lights.
So Santa and his reindeer flew out of sight.
