Once Thanksgiving has passed, Christmas is probably on the mind of most of your students - I know it's on mine! I love to bring Christmas into my classroom for my students, too. These are some of my favorite chapter books to either read aloud to my students or use in small groups leading up to Christmas break.
I usually introduce my students to Flat Stanley when we begin writing to our pen pals. After that my students flock to the Flat Stanley tub in my classroom library. I keep this book close so I can read it aloud before the holidays.
