Many towns and cities across Mexico, Texas, and other U.S. states have festivals to celebrate Chico de Mayo on May 5 each year. Your class will learn the history behind the celebration when reading this 4th grade level R reader. Great book to accompany a social studies unit on the states or Mexico!
The book comes with companion worksheets which reinforce literacy skills involving reading, language, spelling and writing. Specific concepts, skills and vocabulary targeted in the book are listed on the first page of the story.
This book is one of a series of leveled books which I wrote to incorporate the Fountas and Pinnell leveled vocabulary, Rebecca Sitton spelling words, and general core curriculum standards for grades K-6 in the United States.
The books are available for purchase in a variety of collections or many as a single story.
