Yes, I realize I just reviewed my Thanksgiving resources and now I’m sharing winter holiday resources. But, you know, that’s how it goes in our world these days! Turn around and it’s New Years!! So grab a beverage and I want to share a ton of freebies and products from my store to help get you through that Thanksgiving-Winter Break period of the year!
Let me warn you….I love the winter holidays. I love winter--probably because I’ve only occasionally had to live in it, I know! You should see my Christmas clip art collection….or maybe not...you might feel the need for an intervention. So, today I'm just covering resources that will help to keep your students engaged specifically in more group or small group instruction. That includes interactive books and morning meeting materials.
winter holiday Books
The Winter Holiday Interactive Books cover Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa practices It includes a book each common celebrations of each holiday. There are 5 books in all and there are visuals included to put on choice boards with my morning meeting starter kits. All 5 books are illustrated with clip art (rather than photos).
Morning Meeting Christmas add-on
Preschool or early elementary teachers, you are probably always looking for ways to jazz up morning meeting in your classroom. Those who have my Morning Meeting Startup Kit, this is an add-on to that. Or you can use it by itself.
Check out holiday resources that will help to keep your students engaged in group instruction. That includes interactive books and morning meeting materials. #specialeducation
EMMET ELF INTERACTIVE BOOK (FREE)
Grab this free book from my store to have students work on responding to multiple cues in reading and paying attention to detail. It contains a variety of details to attend to from big / small, color, name of the item, and function of the item among others.
It is great for morning meeting and group story times as an interactive book that reinforces these concepts. You can also use it in discrete trials or PRT instruction 1-1 or in small groups to explicitly teach responding to multiple cues.
Teachers may like it for errorless teaching, to prevent errors, or error correction as is appropriate for the students by leaving out pictures that are not the correct answer off the page or limiting the number of choices you can manipulate.
