CHRISTMAS COLLECTION

Here are the resources on my blog/TES that refer to Christmas. These are not new, just shown in one place for you:

xmas 0 SAM GOES TO SEE BABY JESUS This retelling of the story of the Nativity is presented for an adult to read to a child. There are illustrations and a simpler version of the text which many young children will be able to read for themselves. Sam travels back to Bible times in his Special Time Machine to see what happens.
