That's how I feel about this one, Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. I've done this activity with second graders for about 15 years now.
Every year, the children have loved this activity, and it practices some valuable skills: visualizing, summarizing, and sequencing. Plus, it gives them some exposure to classic holiday literature and classical music!
Come on over to Elementary Matters to enjoy this freebie! It's one of my favorites!
