Learn the consonant blend sw as in sweater with this adorable Christmas Unit! :) I used this unit in my own kindergarten class and centered it around our study of The Christmas Sweater: A Picture Book by Glenn Beck. If you are using the unit in an older grade, you may want to make it into a "tacky sweater" theme instead. This pack has materials so that you can do both! Your little sweeties will look swell in their sweaters too! Great opportunity for cute end of the year scrap book pics!
