How the Grinch Stole Christmas

We listened to a  wonderful story called How the Grinch Stole Christmas  by Dr. Seuss. The Grinch  is a creature with a heart two sizes too small.  He lives on  a high mountain just north of Whoville, which is the home of merry and kind Whos. The Grinch hears all the noisy Christmas festivities from Whoville.  Very annoyed, he enters a home through the chimney and removes their Christmas presents, roast 'beast', and decorations, preventing Christmas from coming.  However, he learns that although he 'stole' the Christmas presents and decorations from the Whos, Christmas  comes just the same. He realizes Christmas is more than just gifts.  Because of this, his heart grows three times larger.  He returns all the presents and trimmings.  The community of Whos welcomes him wholeheartedly.
After listening to this story we wrote how we could make the Grinch smile.  How would you the Grinch smile?

  1. That is just super! It really made me smile, so I know the Grinch could not resist smiling as well. I also liked getting a peek at your ornaments. We made the green triangle of sticks. Adding the picture is brilliant!
