The Legend of the Poinsettia

I LOVE Christmas time and especially talking about traditions and legends from other countries with my firsties!  Tomie dePaola has a wonderful story about the poinsettia that we listen to in class as I do a directed draw of a poinsettia with the kids.  I took the scholastic version and turned it into a youtube movie to enjoy this year.  Hope it goes well....You should be able to zamzar the video and download it to your computer.
I've also uploaded it to my account so you can download it from there too :)

Feliz Navidad!


  1. Thank you so much! I do a unit on holidays around the world and this will be a great addition! :)

  2. This is great! I always read the story to my kids. It's great because I'm "Sra. Martinez" like in the book. :0()

  3. Yay! We do a holidays around the world unit and this will be fun! I like switching my read-alouds up with some technology!


  4. Thank you for this! I read this every year! Love this! :)
