Holiday Read Aloud !

SO Many Holiday Books.... so little time!!

Santa's Noisy Night by Julie Sykes

I love this cute story of Santa being so jolly, he needs to be reminded by his reindeer, the family dog and cat, and even a snowman that he needs the be quiet so he doesn't wake the children on Christmas Eve.

This is a great story to rewrite as a reader's theater. The repetitive text is also great for choral reading.

I read this book aloud to my fourth graders one year. We then wrote our own Noisy Santa stories where elves, moms, talking parrots, and little goldfish told Santa, " SHHH! Don't wake the children!"
