Christmas Trolls Lesson Plan
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2
About this book
I use Christmas Trolls for a Jan Brett author study. I also use it when we study about Norway. My students love the illustrations in Jan Brett books. They also like the story in the border of each page.
Students read a wide range of print and non-print texts to build an understanding of texts, of themselves, and of the cultures of the United States and the world; to acquire new information; and for personal fulfillment.
