The Twelve Days of...

I just finished creating another story frame much like Teeny Tiny and Go Away, Big Green Monster that I will be testing out this week.  This one is perfect for December and is based on the traditional story and carol: The Twelve Days of Christmas. Check it out in my TPT store.

Students will use this "fill in the blank" story frame to create their own version of The Twelve Days of ... Christmas, Winter, School, etc.  A little difficult for your students? Then why not use it as a whole group activity or assign one page per child to create a class book or two. Of course, plenty of space is also provided for students to illustrate each of the 12 days. A pre-writing/planning sheet is also included in this 18 page file that targets work with nouns, adjectives, verbs, and ordinal numbers.

Do you like the idea, but are not interested in the entire story frame? Then why not grab the planning sheet here for FREE.


  1. This is so adorable and fun! I'm heading over to purchase it right now.

  2. I tried grabbing the planning page, but it's not working - weird.
