TheTwelveDaysofChristmasVacationNo Santa.  No elves.  Just twelve tongue-twisting days of Christmas... vacation.  Based on the song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" ("12 Days of Christmas"), this rollicking rendition may motivate students to clean their rooms by the time they finish!  The curriculum links at the end even include math lessons for a variety of lesson plans.  Surely your students would have fun creating their own compositions of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"? 

Here is a short excerpt from this free Christmas Readers Theater script:
