Product Description
I use this book to use as a "get to know" you introduction at the beginning of school because they get to present things they love and about their culture/ancestors. This book introduces the idea of our ancestors having to pick a few items to put in their case and bring to America. In the story, a girl is deciding what to bring in her case, so she can share with her class the most important things that tell who she is. Vocabulary is geared for younger/ESL students, but a fabulous book and reading/activities for ALL GRADES.

At the end it tells us that it is not just what you have that tells WHO YOU ARE, but it is WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED and OUR PAST that makes us who we are. I LOVE THIS CONCEPT, but don't go this deep with my kindergartners. When I go back to teaching older grades, I will be using this book the same way, but with a DEEPER connection. :)

In this mini lesson/unit:
List of simple vocabulary words (I made for younger kids or ESL students)
Visual cards for vocabulary words
Before, During and After Reading Strategies
Venn Diagram Idea
Little note to parents to re-use their case to save their school items like flashcards/books
Decorating their own case - that they will fill and share with the class
Parent note about the book and activity
Ancestor/Culture note
World map to color country they are from
