Students will love learning about Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and Christmas through this engaging teacher created eBook. By using the Speak Selection feature on an iPad, students can even have the book read aloud to them! After listening to the ebook, students will use the free app Pic Kids to make a poster of one, two, or all three of these holidays showing some new facts they have learned.
This is an excellent video mini lesson on 'Holidays Around the World' for your youngest learners. It is a video that can be played directly to students as a short mini lesson. The video contains a step-by-step walk-through of the process. The support material contains 2 documents: a .pdf for students and workflow directions for teachers to manage the forwarding of the engaging ebook to your students.
This is a 'plug and play' session that requires literally NO PREP from the teacher other than pressing PLAY or PAUSE - and making sure the FREE app. Pic Kids is on student's iPads.
This lesson is designed for 1:1, 1:2, or classrooms that have at least a group of 4-6 iPads in a center. You students will love listening to this engaging eBook and then designing their own posters on holidays Around the World using their iPads.
THE PERFECT Compliment to this lesson is my VERY popular reader's theater play 'Holiday's Around the World' in my store. Both these activities make for fantastic holidays sessions in mid to late December.
