Traditions, needs and wants, celebrations, Santa, and holiday lights are all included in this amazing resource.
Be prepared for December with all of your shared reading done and planned! Everything is included in this pack for 5 full weeks of engaging shared reading lessons that meet appropriate Common Core standards for this point in kindergarten.
This unit uses shared reading to meet Common Core standards across the ELA curriculum. Students will engage with a poem for 5 days (or more if you want to expand) and work on skills appropriate for kindergarten students in December.
Each poem has specific plans written out and alternate activities. The alternate activities can be used to differentiate and make this unit work for your class! No two classes are the same for me, so I substitute activities out each year.
All 5 poems are original works. They are short and often sung to a familiar tune to engage our youngest learners.
QR codes can be used on the teacher/student copy to get a quick demo/reminder of what the poem should sound like!
All poems come in a projectable PPT with links to listen along!
You will also find all printable materials and directions for implementing a successful poetry center in your classroom if you haven't started one yet!
BONUS: My Needs and Wants Mini Inquiry unit for Social Studies is included along with the Needs poem in this set! Get 5 days of Social Studies lessons that integrate perfectly with your ELA!
Remember that when you provide feedback, you will start to gain credit towards future purchases!
