Integrating ELA Common Core Standards with The Symbols of Hanukkah

We are truly a melting pot and now that December is here there are many holiday celebrations that are included in our lessons. Besides Christmas and Kwanzaa, there is Hanukkah which begins this year on the eve of December 8th. It is also known as the Festival of Lights which is what all three of these holidays have in common. Hanukkah however is celebrated for 8 days and is a fun holiday for children. I love to write Shared Reading books and have written 2 Shared Reading Books for students to practice their Speaking and Listening Skills. One is called :"The Symbols of Hanukkah" and the other is "Latke, Latke What Do You See?. There are 4 Make and Take Reading Books at the K and 1st Grade Levels to practice their Reading Foundational Skills and 2 Writing Activities that are aligned with K and 1st Grade Writing Standards. Here is a sample of one of the Make and Take Books:

Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday season. Thanks for all you do to make a difference for your students.

It's LMN Tree

As a beginner one needs to showcase his/her academic as well as writing achievements. Each client will require your wide knowledge and experience proof; hence you need to have a good resume, which should highlight your knowledge, experience and skills to satisfy their demand.visit site
