    This HUGE 'Holidays Around the World' bundle includes printable and Seesaw digital versions of each resource! This bundle was specially designed for kindergarten and first grade students... perfect for distance learning or traditional classrooms!

    This bundle will give your students exposure to informational text and close reading. Students will practice answering text dependent questions, engage in new vocabulary experiences, and develop a true understanding of different celebrations and holidays from around the world. The simple text and rich, high quality photographs make this unit very meaningful for young students.

    This bundle includes resources for each of the following holidays:

    -Christmas in Russia (**added 12/5/16**)

    The printable portion of each resource includes:

    -2 posters (1 with bright colored background and 1 with a white background to conserve ink when printing.)

    -Several simple informational text articles. Each article introduces new vocabulary, answers and essential question, and presents a high quality engaging photograph to enhance understanding

    -2 pages of text dependent questions for each article. The first page contains 3 explicit questions that are easily found in the text. The second page contains 2 writing prompts that require the student to think deeply and synthesize information about the photograph and the essential question. These questions can be answered by individual students, as shared writing experiences, or through class conversations.

    -An interactive journal page with symbols that represent the holiday

    -A simple student booklet that can be colored and read

    -A page of high quality, color photos that represent the holiday- These can be used for a sorting activity, in a pocket chart, for writing prompts, or for a holiday bulletin board

    These articles are written to be meaningful and easily understood by kindergarten and first grade students. Most kindergarten students will benefit from shared reading experiences with these texts. In first grade students will benefit from shared reading experiences for the first (and possibly second) read through of the texts.

    Please note: This product focuses on the cultural celebrations of different holidays in different cultures. Many of these celebrations are based on religious beliefs. This is acknowledged and mentioned in the articles. These articles focus on the cultural celebrations and in no way endorse or teach any religious beliefs.
