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:
  • U.S.A.
  • Kwanzaa
  • Mexico
  • Germany
  • France
  • Sweden
  • Hanukkah
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.

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.
