“Christmas Confusion” with Teacher notes

2 Comments

Christmas Confusion.

Exhausted I was – one Christmas Eve,

After putting out presents for Santa – Indeed!

I sat on the sofa and ate Santa’s supper.

Instead of the milk – I had a hot cuppa.

 

I started to doze, I started to dream.

I dreamt I was flying as one of a team.

It was cold; it was freezing; my nose – it was red!

Then someone roared “Rudolf!” And I turned my head.

 

“To the top of the porch…”

“Yes I know how it goes.”

And instinctively up off the ground I arose.

Dashing here, there and yonder,

With no time to ponder.

Delivering presents all made by the elves.

 

And when the night ended,

And at last we descended;

I wearily lay down to rest on the hay.

I started to doze, I started to dream.

Then someone yelled “Dad! Where have you been?

Santa’s left presents! Mum’s set the table…

Why are you out here asleep in the stable?”

Teacher Notes:

Christmas is a great time of year to let the imagination go and give students tasks that are  engaging, relevant and fun.

After reading this poem ask students to write their own story of what happened when they closed their eyes on Christmas Eve. When the story is written give them a device Eg: an iPad and they can type the story into presentation software (Keynote, PowerPoint etc) and add images. These could be presented to the class. Have fun.

PS: Hang in there teachers only a week to go.
