Tomorrow the kids are going to write their own versions. Feel free to grab the template if you'd like to do the same.
In case you're unfamiliar with the pattern, it's "Santa Claus, Santa Claus, what do you see? I see an elf looking at me. Elf, Elf, what do you see? I see snow looking at me. Snow, snow, what do you see? I see reindeer looking at me" etc. But of course, the kids can substitute any words they like for elf, snow and reindeer.

Last week we made these Christmas ornaments. The idea came from Jennifer at First Grade Blue Skies. I LOVE how they turned out!
I have to go now, but stay tuned for our Christmas Around the World activities!
