Only 4 days and the CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS start!
I am very happy to show you this beautiful story ! I’ve been using it with my students and the result is AMAZING!
As you will probably know, I really like to do activities before explaining the story and this is my proposal . I was searching some images on the Internet, and I found these pretty flashcards at Super Simple Learning webpage. They are good and they match a lot with the vocabulary in the story.
It is really interesting to use the flash cards also to work on verbs: wraping, sweing, sleeping, writing….
Here you can watch and listen the story readed by me… Hope you ENJOY!
During the story, I like to make them feel part of it, so I try to ask them questions to predict what is going to happen!
I also like to use TPR, and for this story, I give my students some flashcards, and when they hear that words in the story, they have to repeat the word and do a gesture. That’s nice to make them understand some new vocabulary.
Finally, after the story, I prepared a very simple but rich activity to do with my students. I wanted to make them write a letter to Santa, but I told them not to ask for toys or things like that. I asked them to write something more important. They did it in groups, so they had to make decisions and speak in English with their partners!

Then, I correct the letters, and that’s one of the results:
