Product Description
Holidays are often talked about in classrooms, but it can be difficult to find appropriate text for younger students. These guided reading books were developed with K-2 students in mind. There are currently fifteen of twenty holiday topics included. The number of books for each holiday varies. The price of the bundle will increase as more guided reading books are added. You have the choice to print each book in color or in black and white (expect for the free books included in the download – these are only available in black and white at this time). I suggest using the black and white version for your students.
