Still thinking of things to make for our upcoming new mini-units on Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. Our first graders really are engaged when we do our thematic cut-apart sentences, so was very thankful to get those done. Finished up the word wall cards, cut them out, and sent them off to get laminated at the AEA. Got two mini books done for the unit, and finally finish the vocabulary books: All About Hanukkah and All About Kwanzaa. I took clips from the cut apart sentences and the mini books as I wrote this, so that it would be familiar text and hopefully our first graders can make the connections after hearing a variety of different ways. These two unit have some tough vocabulary words, so wanted to expose them to the terms multiple ways.
Next step is to get some read aloud books ordered as well. I think my co-worker, Sara, is going to take care of that for us. Now looking on Pinterest for some video clips and maybe we'll be set!
You can find this set HERE at my TPT store.
