Hanukkah Readers for Young Learners:
Often it is challenging to find appropriate emergent readers on topics that are interesting to our students and still meet the Common Core standards. I have created two readers with related teacher versions.
1. Hanukkah is Here: This is a cut and paste informational reader
that allows students to learn about the traditions of this holiday
but also reviews some basic foundational skills. The student
version was created in black outline and the teacher version
is in full color. The teacher version is perfect for guided
instruction and can then become a part of your literacy station.
You might want to make more than one!
2. Light the Menorah is an emergent reader that focuses on
Common Core mathematical standards. Through repetitive texk
students will practice counting and the use of ordinal numbers in
context. This challenging vocabulary will make sense to our
English Language Learners when presented in this manner.
Once again, the student version has been done in black outline
and the teacher version has been provided in color.
If you love the Sparkle Readers I have created in the past then
you will want to add this to your collection!
