We read the story “Christmas Cookies” which is a story that discusses the process that a girl goes through to make cookies for Christmas.  In each page there is also a vocabulary word that children learn.

book_christmascookies

We discuss the main idea and details and students think-pair-share the words that they remember from the book.  Then they illustrate one vocabulary word that they chose and 1st graders use it in a sentence.
