This May All About Today and More is aligned with International/Holiday calendars to give students a taste of "everything May"! This is perfect for that morning burst of knowledge for getting children into the day or for a time filler. Students get practice with writing the day, date, weather, literacy skills, math skills, drawing, short open response and short readings related to monthly topics. This keeps students alert and interested as they navigate the page shifting to various skills and following directions. It is fun, cute and guaranteed to be a favorite part of their learning as they are randomly asked to use different tools (highlighters, crayons, etc.). It also includes an Answer Key for closed responses. Each monthly workbook will hit many Common Core standards in reading and math. I have used these for both independent practice and partner work. Either way, they love it. Another option is to project it and do together. I have even had them work together to score using a projected teacher's guide and discuss which skills they needed to work on for mastery.
NOTE about PRINTING this product: Please be sure to set your printer driver (settings) "fit to scale" to assure a perfect and beautiful fit! Turns out really cute!

Kids adore these and really look forward to them! They love the clip art, the variety, the current events and the opportunity to have a finished book at the end of the month! My students loved the day after a snow day, spring break or holiday because they got to do more than one page! They love to read about "weird" holidays (their words) and they especially love the mix of famous people and events to read about!
