La Leyenda de Olentzero

Do you know the story of Olentzero?  He’s a mythical character from Basque tradition that delivers presents to kids at Christmas time, and I learned about him from our Basque exchange student who spent the year with our family.  This summer I got the chance to explore his story a little more, and am planning to use it in class this year.  I prepared an activity pack containing pre-reading activities, a one page reading, slide show of photos, and a cultural comparison activity.  It’s available on TPT here.  Be sure to check out the awesome Christmas activities created by Kara Jacobs and Arianne Dowd too!
