### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This group of activities helps keep students engaged before Holiday break. Each activity is based on a holiday tradition many families in the United States have incorporated into their family celebrations.

The skills include math and Language Arts (Addition, subtraction, ordering and comparing numbers to 100 using greater than and less than, expanded form, parts of speech: nouns, verbs, adjectives and prepositions, and antonyms.)

The following Common Core Standards are covered:

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.1.B
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.1.E
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.1.F
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.1.I

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.OA.C.5
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.OA.C.6
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.NBT.B.3

Texas Elements of Knowledge and Skills:
ELA:
(6) Reading/Vocabulary Development. Students understand new vocabulary and use it when reading and writing. Students are expected to:
(A) identify words that name actions (verbs) and words that name persons, places, or things (nouns);
(D) identify and sort words into conceptual categories (e.g., opposites, living things); and

(20) Oral and Written Conventions/Conventions. Students understand the function of and use the conventions of academic language when speaking and writing. Students continue to apply earlier standards with greater complexity. Students are expected to:
(A) understand and use the following parts of speech in the context of reading, writing, and speaking:
(i) verbs (past, present, and future);
(ii) nouns (singular/plural, common/proper);
(iii) adjectives (e.g., descriptive: green, tall);
(v) prepositions and prepositional phrases;

Math
(2) Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to represent and compare whole numbers, the relative position and magnitude of whole numbers, and relationships within the numeration system related to place value. The student is expected to:
(B) use concrete and pictorial models to compose and decompose numbers up to 120 in more than one way as so many hundreds, so many tens, and so many ones;
(C) use objects, pictures, and expanded and standard forms to represent numbers up to 120;
(D) generate a number that is greater than or less than a given whole number up to 120;
(E) use place value to compare whole numbers up to 120 using comparative language;
(G) represent the comparison of two numbers to 100 using the symbols >, <, =.
