    I really liked this assignment. The passages were perfect for December. I love when students have to underline evidence. I used it for homework but will use it in different capacities next year. Thanks

  12. Kellyn A.

    My students really enjoyed reading about the different winter traditions and holidays. It was engaging enough for my high learners to do on their own. I worked with a small group of students who needed help. Overall positive reviews from the kids! Wish there were more opportunities to summarize/ ask for main ideas.

  13. Peggy M.

    I just finished the week with using this for a morning warm up. Fantastic, easy short and very informative as an entrance ticket to the day. Can be used as a summative assessment. When I taped a candy cane to the candy cane sheet they were really interested. I would use this again and highly recommend it.
