PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The teaching theme focus for this packet is KWANZAA. Since this is a unit for 4,5 and 6 year old children, I have a given a "big picture" view of the traditions of Kwanzaa, and have not gone into the symbolism in detail. Please check the PREVIEW for an idea of the activities.

This resource has been extensively updated.

Besides the activities, songs, stories and games listed for the day, this pack includes these centers and printables:

• Poster of a kinara, plus a coloring page
• Draw a present for Kwanzaa - what do you think is in the box?
• Cut and paste candles in kinara - counting and color recognition
• Lotto/bingo game - matching and vocabulary
• Cut and paste symbols of Kwanzaa onto a traditional m’keka mat.
• Decorate and color a “Celebrating Kwanzaa” poster.
- Word/picture strips, plus header, to use for a vocabulary word wall or pocket chart
- Traditional African fabric patterns to use for collage work.
- Discuss and draw - Some African American families celebrate Kwanzaa. What do you celebrate at your house?
- Set of large manipulative pictures of Kwanzaa items to use for vocabulary, and to make games.

************************************************************************
Pre-K Theme for a Day is a series of mini teaching topics that are focused towards preschool and Pre-K learners. Although the activities are written to cover one full day of activities and related games, centers and other printables, there are enough ideas to extend the theme longer if needed.

Instantly ready to use. Very few additional items are needed to present the activities besides basic art supplies and cardstock. Use the centers from year to year. This series of teaching units saves time and money, and all activities are solidly supported by the foundational concepts leading to the Common Core Kindergarten standards. You can slide a unit effortlessly into your usual curriculum lesson plans when you are in a hurry, or you can use the units as a central focus of your curriculum.
