18 Read Alouds and 30+ Activities to keep things festive without losing instructional momentum!

Holidays present a conundrum--should I plow through my curriculum as if nothing is happening or stop everything and throw a party? These read alouds and activities are meant to help you and your students enjoy the season without abandoning your curriculum. The activities are open-ended and the read alouds are versatile--simply choose the teaching points that best fit your current unit!

8 Versatile Read Alouds

The read alouds include more teaching points than you can use. Simply highlight your instructional goals and the corresponding discussion questions (see preview).

30+ Corresponding Activities

Each activity extends concepts discussed in the read aloud. Many of the activities are graphic organizers that can be used to analyze the corresponding read aloud, or student's independent reading. See preview for a full list of activities.

What Grade Level Are These Mini Units Designed For?

The read alouds include common-core standards for Grades 3-5. The books are very well suited for grades 3-4, but may be a little bit easy for 5th graders. I've still included 5th grade standards for fifth grade teachers who are looking for something on the easier-side for the holidays.

Looking for More Read Alouds?

I am in the process of making a year's worth of genre units for the reading workshop classroom. Each unit includes read alouds, mini-lessons and lesson extensions (guided practice). The read alouds are more in-depth than the ones included in these holiday bundles, and are more closely aligned with the grade-level they are designed for. The first two units are available now:

Realistic Fiction Unit for Grades 3-4 </a>

Realistic Fiction Unit for Grades 5-6

Historical Fiction Unit for Grades 3-4

Historical Fiction Unit for Grades 5-6
