Holidays Around the World

Years ago, I posted about my Winter Celebrations Scrapbook.  You can check out the post here.  Last year, I felt like we needed to condense our activities.  We were shorter on time and had a full packed curriculum that needed to be incorporated as well.  I decided to alter the booklet just a bit, but the original is still included in the resource.


I created one page passages and a place for students to draw a single snapshot of something they learned about the country or celebration.  The following countries/celebrations are included:

Check out my little guy's snapshot for Sweden.  That Tomten is too cute!!!  
Each of the pages is formatted like the page below. 

There is also a separate smaller booklet with multiple questions for each of the passages and a map is also included.

I LOVE to incorporate read alouds as I introduce each country/celebration.  
Here are just a few of my favorites.

Regrouping Practice

I wanted to share a resource that I use year after year in my second grade classroom.  The pages can be used as a quick check, review, or even as an assessment after the skill has been taught.

The resource contains 58 pages of math problems that have a clean, simplistic design.  There are only 10 problems per page, so they shouldn't be too overwhelming for students.  I prefer to use them for morning work.  Then, I give my students immediate feedback, and they go back and correct any they had difficulty with.  I find it to be a simple, yet valuable learning tool in the classroom.

Below you can see the types of pages included in the resource.  Within the resource, you will be able to click and head to the pages you need.

Cinco de Mayo

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I put together this little freebie. 

I love to introduce Cinco de Mayo with a read aloud.  
My favorite is Marco's Cinco de Mayo by Lisa Bullard.

The freebie above is a great follow up activity after reading the story.   Your students can simply color and write about Cinco de Mayo in the space provided.
