Great December Read Alouds!

Well December is here and now there are just 2 weeks left to go before winter break! I love that with each new month I can pull out some new books to use for read alouds with my little friends. My winter selection is kind of overflowing seeing that we live in the Chicagoland area and, well, winter just lasts a reallllll long time here for us. 

Here are some of my favorite Christmas-y and not-so-Christmas-y read alouds that I use in December. I included two graphic organizers {freebies} at the bottom that you can use with any winter-themed books! 

Year after year I come back to these same stories in December, generally because my students always love them...and so do I! They are just fun, good reads. We usually discuss the books as I am reading them and then do a follow up activity, like the graphic organizers below...scroll down to grab your own copy!

Thanks to Prettygrafik for the backgrounds, Hello Literacy for the fonts and Whimsy Clips & Krista Wallden for the clipart!

Download these reading response freebies here! Enjoy :)

Have a great day!
