I'm going to spotlight some fellow TPT seller's products on the first of each month as a blog promotion. Check out these 5 wonderful products! Just click on the product picture to go to the link.

Chocolate for Teachers
We all know that teaching around Christmas, Valentines, or just about any other holiday can be almost impossible. Many of our students don't know how some of holidays began or the meaning behind them. There are also some crazy-fun holiday practices that have died out over the years, but are still good for a laugh or two. 

174 pages of printables, activities,and informational text about holidays that we celebrate. Plenty of variety to keep your students interested and engaged. Each holiday has a decorative cover that can be printed and used as a book cover for your kids! Activities include: flip books, task cards, crossword puzzles, and printables. Everything you need to teach the holidays for the whole year! All answer keys included. 

Standards listed are for grades 2-4, but passages and activities would also be suitable for grades 5 or 6 and homeschool. 

Please look at table of contents for complete listing of holidays included, standards covered, and for a sneak peak of pages!!
