Columbus Day
Columbus Day - Robin Nelson

I think that if I paired this with the cute commercial with the child eating cereal and the cereal is making sure he is ready for the test and then reading the book about Columbus sailing the ocean blue would spark their interest. Then they could reenact their own cereal commercial! This would probably be on a 1st grade reading level, but it hold valuable information that the students could use in a research worksheet or scavenger hunt of Columbus' life.

Veterans Day
Veterans Day (First Step Nonfiction) - Robin Nelson

I love this Holiday. It would be fun to read this book and have my students write friendly letters to veterans thanking them for their service. I loved writing letters to my friends over seas and it would be a great opportunity for the kids to write and make someone's day. I think this would be appropriate for younger grades, the reading is very elementary but the information is good and specific.

President's Day
President's Day - Robin Nelson

This would be a good book to read when my 1st grade class is learning all about our presidents and to go along with history. It would be fun to give them a writing assignment about what a President does and what the white house looks like.

Thanksgiving -AH
Thanksgiving (First Step Nonfiction - American Holidays) - Robin Nelson

This book would be another one to read during Thanksgiving. It is more realistic and tells the true story of Thanksgiving. I would find multiple Thanksgiving stories to read to my class so they can compare the different stories. I would use this with a 1st or 2nd grade class. This could be used along with my other Thanksgiving books and have them do an activity I have of " the Thankful Turkey".

Independence Day
Independence Day - Robin Nelson

This is a book in my collection of American Holiday books. This would be a fun book to read and have them talk about fireworks and what independence means. I would use this with a 1st or second grade class. Then for an activity I would take toilet paper rolls, cut slits half way up the tube and bend them outwards. When you dip them in paint and put them on paper they look like fire works. I could do multiple writing things with this collection of books.
