Using Clement Moore's 1822 "Twas the Night Before Christmas Poem" the students retell the story, using their "own" words. This flip chart can be a class activity for younger students or an individual activity for older students. Two lines are given on each page. The lines are above, the students read the lines, then they (students or class) types a revision using "their own" or "other words".  Once completed, have the students read it using their own interpretation.

Note: You need Promethean ActivInspire Flip Chart Software to open and participate with the flip chart.  This will work on a computer without a Promethean Board. (Note the download for the software is quite large.)
