How carefully do you listen to the lyrics of songs?  Now is your chance to have a little fun with some Christmas songs.  Listen to Winter Wonderland with out seeing the lyrics. 

 

Bing Crosby's Winter Wonderland on You Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP5_dJUd3BY

 

On the 'Hear/Think/Wonder' Sheet fill in your initial impression of the song.  Listen to the song again and add in more details about the song and what you hear.

 

Now read the lyrics.

  • What key ideas can you take away from the song?
  • What specific examples from the text support the main idea?
  • Retell the song. What is the song about?
  • What were the major events in the song?
  • What did the author do to show the reader it was Christmas?
  • How did the author help you understand/visualize the song?

 

Now do the same with Mr Grinch.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nytpYtLtHpE
