Free Legend of the Poinsettia Activities!

December 10, 2015

The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomie dePaola is one of my favorite Holidays Around the World books to read! I thought I would share some of the comprehension and vocabulary activities I use each year {of course, all “gussied up” with better borders and fonts than I used in the past}.
If you need a copy of this classic in your classroom, you can snag one below:

In case you’re reading the same book and need some free activities just click below:


There is a simple, retelling sheet, a comprehension question page, and some vocabulary that I point out to my first graders.



I also included a directed drawing for a poinsettia. They are super, simple to draw which usually means success for ALL my students, artistically inclined or not 😉

If you’re looking for more to help you teach Holidays Around the World, I have a unit of close reading passages and poems to learn about 7 different holidays!

You can see that below:
