Use Printable Books to Write Columbus Day Lesson Plans
We created this resource for circle time and reading lessons. In addition, we suggest these alternative uses to reinforce reading skills and new vocabulary words with your small group and full-class lessons:
- Print on cardstock and assemble a small set of books for a reading center activity where students read the books to each other as partners.
- Complete a booklet, print a copy for each student, and have them read to an adult at home.
