Our Holidays Around the World Close Read is a complete mini unit for your students! It will keep them reading and writing while enjoying the excitement of the holiday season!
This mini unit includes 5 Non-Fiction Holiday Passages:
***Christmas in Sweden-St. Lucia Day***
***Christmas in Germany-St. Nicholas Day***
***Christmas in Italy***
***Christmas in Mexico-Las Posadas***
Each holiday passage includes a list of vocabulary words, discussion questions, and a text dependent question worksheet. We have provided 3 versions of the student worksheet/writing paper for each holiday so you may easily differentiate for the range of abilities in your class. One version includes the question only, one has the question and a sentence starter, and one has lined paper so you can provide your own question or students can write about what they learned from reading the passage.
We have also included our Holidays Around the World Suitcase Craftivity which can be used as a folder to hold the close read passages and the text dependent question follow-up activity.
