These pages are not only festive and fun, but they also help our students think about the meaning of holidays and can help meet Social Studies standards related to holidays (I have included extra holidays that are not typically found in standards such as St. Patrick’s Day, but are fun nonetheless!).
These pages can be used either individually or placed in a booklet. If placing together in a booklet, you can use the set of pages that are shifted so that they can be copied back-to-back, hole-punched, and look nice placed in a folder with clasps or stapled together. If you will not be placing these in a booklet (but just using them as individual pages) or are going to pick and choose the holidays to include, there is another set of pages included that are not shifted.
On each page, students draw a picture in the box related to the holiday. You can leave this open-ended or tell students what to draw (your favorite thing about the holiday, how you celebrate the holiday, etc.). Then on each page and with some guidance, students will write when the holiday is, why the holiday is important/what it is for, and how students celebrate the holiday (ie traditions). Although answers can vary, I have included answer keys of possible answers for each page. A cover page is included as well.
The following holidays are included:
New Year’s Day
Martin Luther King Day
St. Patrick’s Day
