FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Christmas Song Titles in Gobbledygook”

by Margaret Whisnant
6th - 9th Grade

Gobbledygook, high-sounding language that confuses and amuses, is the subject of this fun Christmas activity. Students are challenged to identify the titles of twenty-six popular Christmas tunes written in extreme gobbledygook. The activity is organized into two handouts--Set One with twelve titles and Set Two with fourteen. An introductory page for students explains the nature and origin of the term.

The last page is a graphic organizer for writing a letter to Santa in gobbledygook.

Though some youngsters may be initially flabbergasted, do give this lively lesson a try. What better way to provide insight into the fun and the power of words?

Download and enjoy.
