This product is a Christmas-themed unit with over 25 pages of activities to go along with the heartwarming story of Too Many Tamales, by Gary Soto. This story is a wonderful way to share the Christmas traditions of the Hispanic culture, while touching on the importance of family and honesty.
Included in this unit you can find:
Video suggestions, vocabulary cards (with and without pictures), reading comprehension questions, a variety of vocabulary activities and reading comprehension activities. You students can also enjoy getting a chance to write in relation to the story with a How to make Tamales, My holiday traditions, and a "Oh no! I lost my ___________ in the tamales."
These activities are great and can be used in a whole group setting or in small group during guided reading.
*Please note that this is a growing bundle as I will be adding more resources for anchor charts to accompany many aspects of this reading unit. (this should be done by 12/1/17)
Thank you so much! I hope you and your students love this book and unit as much as I do.
