Mr Carey’s CM group – for 16th December

Dear Students,

It’s Christmas time!

The following Christmas poem was published anonymously in 1823 and was later thought to be written by a man called Clement Clarke Moore. He wrote the poem on a  snowy day and apparently his character of St Nicolas was partly inspired by a local Dutch handyman.

This is a classic poem, perhaps the most famous poem to have come out of America, and it is read traditionally in homes throughout America and the world on Christmas Eve.

  1. Please read it several times and I will test you on your recitation next week.
  2. Please write a short paragraph (7 sentences) telling me what you think of the poem. Be honest and imaginative. Talk about your favorite lines or images, and use the adjectives and sentence starters from your class copybook to help you in writing a fantastic paragraph! Remember to write clear, precise sentences.

To help you I have attached various ‘readings’ from you-tube at the end.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

« Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONNER and BLITZEN!

To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all! »

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,

So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;

A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;

He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,

And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!

Enjoy!

Mr Carey

Ms. Smith’s CM- for 16 December

Hello!

Next week, we’ll be learning my favorite Christmas song, Last Christmas. Circle all the simple past verbs in the lyrics.

Last Christmas
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me, baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it’s been a year
It doesn’t surprise me
(Merry Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, « I love you,  » I meant it
Now, I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Here’s a link to the song : Last Christmas  Practice singing it! 🙂

Dear Students,                                 Christmas at school clipart

Thank you to those of you who do with your homework carefully. It is a pleasure to mark work where I can see an effort has been made. Keep up the good work.

This week we’re going to be learning one of my favourite winter songs. When you listen to the lyrics, close your eyes and imagine the snowman and the children playing together. We will also be writing our own poems. Remember, when writing poetry you have the freedom to write either with rhyming words or free verse. You can even make up words. Let your imagination fly!
