New Year's Day Interactive E-Book

Common Core is all about non-fiction texts... which is absolutely awesome IF you can find a high quality non-fiction text that is appropriate for your grade level.  Sometimes, this is easy, but other times this is a major pain... especially when you teach Kindergarten.  Most books are incredibly advanced, while others are way too simple.

Anyway, this year, I decided to start creating more e-books so that I can really tailor the curriculum to the needs of my students.  Last month, I created an e-book called Animals that Hibernate and my students just love the interactive pages.  This month, I struggled to find a nonfiction text for New Years Day... so I researched the holiday and wrote one!

I actually learned a lot while I was researching and this book has all of the important information that I found... including the fact that New Year's Day used to be on March 1st!  (No Joke, January and February were non-existent for quite some time!  I was shocked and my students LOVED learning something that their siblings and parents probably didn't know!  Click the picture below to check out the book on TPT.  It's a Smart Notebook file and has informational text as well as question pages!
