Still plugging along and getting some things made for the new upcoming unit in December. Finished my Hanukkah and Kwanzaa mini books this week. Can't wait to use them...as I even learned a lot making them! We've always done the Scholastic News each year that BRIEFLY tells about Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, but I've never done any reading up on it until now.
These mini book are by NO MEANS an independent read for first graders. They are more of a shared reading whole group or in a guided reading group for students to learn about the two holiday traditions. Older or more advanced first grade children will be able to read them.
You can find them HERE at my TPT store.
