    I am working on a making a Christmas book with my students to give to their parents for Christmas. It is based off the book Christmas Is... by Gail Gibbons. One of my students would like to translate her book from English to Spanish because her parents only understand Spanish. I was wondering if someone could help me translate her paper. She and I would be so grateful! Here is her story!

    1. Christmas is ... Mom and my family. My family is nice to me. They take care of me and buy me stuff.

    2. Christmas is ... presents. When it is Christmas, I open my presents.

    3. Christmas is...about my teachers. They buy gifts for us.

    4. Christmas is... Santa Claus. Santa Claus leaves presents for me by the tree.

    5. Christmas is... ornaments and decorating the tree. We use the family ornaments every year. We decorate the tree and drink egg nog.

    6. Christmas is...baby Jesus. Jesus was born in a manger on December 25.

    7. Christmas is...joy. It is so fun!

    8. Christmas is...Christmas cards. I love to get cards.

    9. Christmas is...a feeling in your heart. I always get an excited feeling in my heart.


    Thanks for your help!

      This is probably not the best grammer and is missing accents... but maybe someone else can come in and fix it up some.
