Teaching Tips

Distribute the reproducible and challenge students to find the items mentioned in the clue. Have students color in the items as they locate them. Afterward, invite students who celebrate Christmas at home to talk about (or even bring to school) ornaments that are meaningful to their families. Just be sure each ornament gets back home safe and sound! (An alternative would be to have the students draw a special ornament for homework, then tell about it in class the next day.)
