Description

The students will practice text dependent questions, authors purpose, text structure, comparing and contrasting, illustrations, moral of the story, context clues, nonliteral statements, main idea and detail, and character traits in this ENGAGING Holidays Around the World challenge.

The students will go through a series of eight challenges. Each challenge will require them to complete a reading activity, which involves reading and applying a skill. They will work there way through eight different countries. When they are done you can celebrate with a holiday party!

Why will these challenges help your students grow?

Engagement- Students will be engaged from the beginning to the end of the challenges. They won't even realize how hard they are working and how much they are learning about hard skills!

Rigor- These challenges are HIGH LEVEL and make students really think about the text. They also work on many reading skills.

Low Prep- You can just print and do the challenge or you can go all out and transform your room! It truly is up to you! This challenge is also done all on SCRAP paper! So, no copying for you!

What are others saying?!

>>>HEAD HERE FOR A WHOLE YEAR OF CHALLENGES<<<

I loved doing mini-transformations each month that would engage my kiddos, but I wanted it to be easy to prep. I also wanted the challenge to be very rigorous, so that my students were working very hard during a time that they were also engaged. Lastly, I wanted to make sure we were reviewing and assessing skills monthly. That is where these challenges came into play. Now each month we practice skills, I get a small assessment in, we are SO engaged, we make memories, and we challenges ourselves! I hope you can too!

Much Love,
