"A Christmas Carol" - AudioText & Animated Movie
Okay, if you're anything like me (I hate seeing Christmas commercials and mailers too early), you're probably asking yourself, "Isn't it a little early to be posting Christmas reading material?"
Yes and No.
Yes: If you plan on doing "A Christmas Carol" as a play at your school.
No: If your students, sons or daughters have not read "A Christmas Carol" yet.
If you are in the later camp, then it's time assign our AudioText version of "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. With our AudioText version, your students can listen to the audio of the text as they read along. And, at the end, they can watch an animated version of the story.
While I'm somewhat partial to the Alastair Sim's black-and-white version of the story, we have found that kids like the animated version better.
So, please enjoy! and "Merry Christmas, Everyone!" ... albeit a little early.
