Dear Dave:

Happy Holidays to you & your fine family. Now we literally call upon the spirit of Classics Illustrated Comics aficionados, my late mother, Mrs. June C. Koopmans, B. Ed., of Grade II at Afton Elementary School & her father Thomas Archibald "Archie" Adams on mom's favourite day of the year for a lesson plan. It is times such as Christmas Day that you bring out the very best of them all! Besides Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth The IInd works Christmas Day, shouldn't The Queen Of Christmas to?!

Printing: "R" & "r" & placing them in Christmas themed sentences.
Reading: words: Silent Reading (SR) from "Our TV", classroom created tv shows from students themselves. Then reading them out loud to gain confidence in writing & reading.

  1. Classic comics are the best, and Pierre Loti is an author whose work is otherwise hard to come by in English. This is obviously a contemporary reprint. Look at the price -- 10 quid!
