The Big Sale and 2 New Holiday Products!
Thank you Krista for the button!

Are you guys as excited as I am for the Cyber Monday and Tuesday sale?  I am hoping to stock up on some holiday stuff and clip art.  And, luckily I was able to find time to finish up two new holiday books for my Holiday Emergent Reader bundle.  (So if you've already bought it, go re-download to get those 2 for free!)

Introducing: I Am Ready for Diwali: An Emergent Reader about the Hindu Festival of Lights.  This is a great holiday to compare to some of the winter holidays we typically celebrate because of it's focus on light and family.
 The book is a Level B, after you've introduced vocabulary.  But there are 3 versions of the book to allow for differentiated word work!  Click any of the pictures to check it out.
The second book is about Eid al-Adha, the most important Muslim holiday.  The time it is celebrated varies...this year it was celebrated in October.  But since it is the main holiday, I wanted to include it in my holiday unit, particularly because I have a Muslim student this year.  It, too, lends itself to comparison with Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.  It is so interesting to see the many parallels between holidays in different cultures.
I hope you like the new books and enjoy the sale!  Have a great week!
