Do you love Patricia Polacco’s Christmas books as much as I do? Welcome Comfort is one of my favorites, and I’ve created a cross-curricular unit for Grades 3 to 5 for this tale. The story tells revolves around a young boy, Welcome, who is in foster care and is the target of bullies at his school. Welcome is befriended by the school custodian, Mr. Hamp, who along with his wife become proxy parents for him. I won’t give away the surprise ending here!
Included in this resource are:
- frontloading activities to build prior knowledge
- drama activities
- multiple choice questions
- comprehension questions
- genre study: Circular Endings
- crossword puzzle
- math/geography lesson dealing with time zones and 24 hour notation
- writing activities
This resource contains answer keys when applicable, and is intended for students in Grades 3 – 5.
I also have two other Patricia Polacco Christmas Literature units available for sale in my Teachers Pay Teachers store:
