Does Santa have a plan? What do you think?
This story uses picture clues in place of some of the words (rebus format) so early readers, struggling readers, ESL students, and even pre-readers can share the storytelling with their parent or caregiver. This rhyming Christmas story is a bridge to reading with greater fluency. It helps motivate readers and increases their confidence by allowing them to read beyond their level of decoding and reducing frustration. Apart from all the educational benefits, rebus stories are fun to read and share.
