Today we are going to move away from classroom decor and management and onto something that I am very passionate about... BOOKS! I don't know about you, but I have the hardest time finding Kindergarten appropriate books that teach about holidays. I'm not just talking about Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, etc. I'm talking about Patriotic Holidays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day... These are the holidays that are almost impossible to find a simple, yet accurate, book to use in a lesson. At least they were until NOW!
Check these out!
Creative Teaching Press has this awesome set of 12 books that cover the following holidays/events:
Cinco de Mayo
Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Chinese New Year
The books are perfect for reading aloud to the students and then putting into the classroom library. Many of my students are able to read the words on their own.
Want to take a peek inside? This is the book we just used last week when discussing Mother's Day.
Since we aren't in school for Father's Day, we read that book too! :)
As much as I loved these two books, my favorite book from the set is the book about Patriotic Holidays. It gives a brief description of each holiday and has vivid pictures depicting the reason behind the holiday. The book covers Labor Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, and Veteran's Day. Here's a quick peek inside!
So are you ready to try and win a set? Here's your chance!
