THE HOLIDAYS ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER (whichever ones you and your students happen to celebrate)!
This product is designed to pick up where other color-coded text evidence activities leave off. As students get older, they are using more and more of their evidence in their writing. They are expected to provide longer written answers. Still, we have reluctant writers in our classrooms. We have times when we need to give our upper elementary students a reminder about the importance of providing text evidence as support for their statements. I have used this activity as bell work, homework, and this year, I have also sent it home as part of my students' ELA summer work requirements. This particular packet will be the one I use to introduce finding text evidence in the late fall. This packet highlights 20 holidays around the world that your students will love to learn about. They are perfect for this time of year. Holidays highlighted include: Ramadan, Eid al-Fitr, Saint Nicholas Day, Fiesta Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Lucia Day, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year, New Year's Eve, Omisoka, Saturnalia, Dongzhi Festival, Bodhi Day, Boxing Day, and several others.
