I really love to celebrate diversity in my classroom. One of the ways I try to do this is to provide lots of skills-based activities featuring readings on other cultures and holidays. With that in mind, I created my FREE Chinese New Year Read-and-Retell Activity. This year the Lunar New Year falls on February 10. This fun activity is ideal for grades 3-5. It helps your students to learn a little about how the Lunar New Year is celebrated in China and the way this activity is constructed scaffolds your students' retelling and summary of what they learned through the use of key vocabulary words. This download contains the read-and-retell activity at 3 different reading levels to address the needs of all the students in your class.
This activity gets students reading, writing, speaking and listening all
in one activity. This activity is aligned with Common Core State
Standards and WiDA ELD standards.
I invite other TpT teacher-authors to share both their FREE and paid products for the Chinese and Lunar New Year.
All TpT Teacher-Authors are welcome to submit their products! Here are the rules:
1. Link directly to the product, not to your blog.
2. Post a link to this page on your blog or Facebook. This allows even more folks to see your products and the other products that are being shared.
3. Where it says "name" please put the name of the product. If it is a free product, please put "FREE" before the title. If it is a paid product, please put the price at the end of the title.
