You start with a close reading passage about the topic. Your kinders can take notes in the top part while you read it. If you have older aged children they can read on their own. You can also do those close reading activities.. find your sight words, underline the nouns, or whatever you do to dig deeper into text!
Next you take those organizers and make them into a report. Again with lots of choices as to which paper you want to use for your students.
Last I do the craft. (I make them work for their craft!) I do these in two ways. I will give them the paper on white and have them color the correct colors (it is underlined and I also color on the board as a sample.) Or I will color on construction paper. When I do this I just copy the entire paper on what ever color they need. So if the Christmas Tree is green and yellow, I copy that paper on green and yellow. I personally just feel my time is more valuable than cutting and sorting papers and the kids can use the extra images to create other things in the writing lab.
In this set you get six easy to make crafts to correspond with the 6 countries included.
The best part is that you prep this entire unit all together and staple it all into one book. So if you plan on doing Holidays Around the World for 2 weeks.. you pick the pages you want for each country, copy and staple them together, add nonfiction books and you are literally good to go! It's a great way to organize yourself AND creates a cute little keepsake for the parents!
