How to use this teaching resource

  • White out some of the words from the A4 copy to make up a cloze worksheet.
  • List all the different ‘names’ for ‘Santa’ from around the world.
  • List other words which rhyme with the rhyming words in this poem.
  • A really interesting activity to do with poems, is to change the words, for example, ‘I was tucked in bed, pretending to sleep’ could become – ‘Vanessa was lying in bed, pretending to read’
  • This poem has a lovely message towards the end – emphasizing the gift of ‘giving’ – what ways could children ‘give’ to others at Christmas (not just gifts!)
  • Pop the large print copy onto coloured backing card, laminate and use as a class reading reference – again, circle sounds, letter patterns etc using whiteboard markers – we would learn a new poem/song/rhyme every 1-2 weeks.
  • Print out large print, sentence blocks and word blocks pages, and laminate.  Cut up the sentence and word blocks. Children put them back together correctly – great group time / literacy task activity.  Pop in a plastic zip-lock bag and place in Songs/Poems/Rhymes Box with other songs, poems and rhymes to rebuild.
  • Find phonic groupings within these Christmas carol lyrics to match with A5 Phonics Printable Cards
