PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This informational text and reading strategies unit includes 1 passage each for the following holidays: Las Posadas (Christmas), Diwali, Chinese New Year, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. In addition to these passages, I have also included other non-fiction texts such as maps, diagrams, instructions, recipes, and more! You will also find a cute flip book included as a place for students to summarize and synthesize their learning. Finally, I have added several art and food extension suggestions!

Click HERE to see how I use this pack in conjunction with folktales from around the world!

NOTE: Please see my extensive preview above! It includes a few sample passages, so that you can determine whether the text is appropriate for your students, before purchasing :)
