Captivate students with winter themed fun while meeting learning standards with this ORIGINAL New Year's Packet! This 80 page packet is packed full of excitement.

What's included...

A heavy dose of story vocabulary will assist language learners with words such as resolution, pinned, bank, scamper, spied, edge, stake, and grumpy.

Provided are several options for recording vocabulary words. Option one includes a vocabulary book with clipart images. Option two includes blank vocabulary response pages.

Reread the story throughout the week using my prepared interactive skills pages. Included are essential questions, flip flaps for note taking, and a student page for informal assessment. Each of the above options are provided for goals, resolutions, time, months, years, place value.

Build background knowledge of New Years with a KWL.

You'll find engaging comprehension response sheets with a story map, compare/contrast, plot, and sequence of events.

Encourage students to write narratives of their New Year's celebration with a word list and differentiated writing paper.

Engage students while reading by interacting with retelling props. Bring the story to life by simply gluing pieces to a tongue depressor. Or, you can simply place the cards in a pocket chart for additional sequencing practice.

Last, you'll find an developing reader to provide students with fluency practice using both sight words and vocabulary! Little Squirrel, Little Squirrel What Do You See? is sure to captivate students!

Please check out the 14 page preview to see visuals of the entire document! I also have a ---> Blog Post <--- with a peek at my week and how I'm using the file.

Thank you!
