I just wanted to post a quick line to let you know I updated my Chinese New Year ELA pack to represent 2015 and The Year of the Sheep. I won't be doing a ton of activities with Chinese New Year this year because it falls right around Mardi Gras and well.. living in the mecca of Mardi Gras I need to put in some serious time celebrating a new culture. BUT I don't want to forget about teaching my students a little about Chinese traditions so I'm going to use my ELA pack as my Word Work review in Febrauary.
Included in my ELA is a Cloze Reading activity for students to practice fluency. I also have the passage set up as a Close Reading Activity with comprehension activity. There are several sets of Word Work Task Cards that include practice with Homophones, Pronouns, Sentence Combining, and Synonym vocabulary. These will be a good way to get in a little extra practice
If you are looking for a way to get in a little word work practice and teach your students about Chinese New Year, my pack may be the asnwer for you.
