We read the book “Christmas Kitten” and made prediction on if the kitten would find a home.  Most of the students predicted that Santa would send the homeless kitten to the little girls house because they were able to use their prior knowledge of previewing the cover.  Then we wrote our own letter’s to santa, like the little girl Sophie did in the book, and we wrote three things we wanted for Christmas.  Finally we made a whole class hand cutout Christmas tree.

We read the story If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and discussed cause and effect.  As we went through the story, students would make predictions one what they would happen next once the mouse got the next thing.  Then we created a mouse made of construction paper as well as their own stories about what they would give the mouse; and what the mouse would want if they gave them the first item.
