    Very interesting idea to do this with your pupils. I think I will copy it for the next Christmas. 😉

    Do you like it?
    Actually Philip Johnson gave me the idea sending my children his children’s similes about the parents for their Christmas cards. First my children read and drew them, as you can see on, then they tried to create their own ones to describe Christmas!
    All the best!
