I am so excited about these Patriotic Passages/Reflect and Respond Sheets because I’ve needed them myself. No more searching the morning of these holidays to find something appropriate to share with my class.
Look at the preview to see one holiday with the different versions. I feel these are appropriate for Grades 1-5 but decide for yourself after looking at preview.
Holidays Included: Veterans Day, Election Day, Memorial Day and Flag Day.
Each holiday comes with THREE versions.
*One is for younger kids at an easier reading level. It has a
Chit Chat Partner Activity. No writing is required. Could they
write the answers? Yes, but I chose to focus on discussion for
the younger grades.
* Second and Third Versions are written at a higher level and
have more detailed explanations and additional background info
of the holidays. One is for independent use while the other is also
a CHIT CHAT PARTNER activity. You can decide which version
is best for your students. Not everyone needs the same version.
TIP: I personally love the Chit Chat so kids can engage in
meaningful discussion. To hold the partners responsible, I stop
after the first few questions and call on kids to share their
PARTNER’S response. This truly forces them to stay focused and
engaged with their friend.
