February is a month jam-packed with lots of great holidays... Chinese New Year, Groundhog Day, Mardi Gras, President's Day, Valentine's Day, Black History Month, and even a few others that I didn't mention! One thing that Katie and I love to do is incorporate the holidays into our Rooted in Reading units. We look for books that would be fun for your students during the holidays but that are also going to grow them as readers and thinkers. I wanted to give you a better look at the books and skills that are included in Rooted in Reading February.
