It's HERE....Holidays Around the World Interactive Paper Bag Book!

Happy late Thanksgiving, friends! I hope that you are at home enjoying some lovely Christmas movies and not one of those crazies out there stealing the deals. If you happen to be a crazy, I still love you and am a tad jealous of all of the amazing deals that you find! ;) I just have never *EVER* been a Black Friday shopper. Three things about me...1) I hate crowds! 2) I hate lines! 3) I never find anything on sale! Those three things may be the very reasons why I have never been friends with Black Friday. Instead, I am enjoying the day in my pajamas with some good coffee and movies. It also gives me a little time get some work finished {since the internet on my cruise was something awful}. :) 

I am so excited to share my newest unit(s) that I just posted in my TPT shop. Holidays around the World...need I say more? This is always one of my favorite studies. However, I always had trouble figuring out what to do with all of the crafts and activities. I have been trying to think of a way to consolidate this study into a book that could extend beyond our study in the classroom into the homes of the students. So I give you....

This unit is filled with all of the resources needed to study 16 different countries and cultures. Each page also includes a QR code so that students can continue their research and learning at home. This is a perfect resource to get in some holiday reading practice at night with families. You can snag this unit in my TPT shop by clicking {HERE}

This unit is also included in my Ultimate Holiday Writing Bundle which includes four other writing projects perfect to keep your students engaged up until the holidays arrive. I will be back to share more about this tomorrow, or you can check it out on TPT right {HERE}

Hope y'all are having a safe holiday weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with more from my Ultimate Holiday Writing Bundle! :) 



  1. So cute!!

  2. Hope, are all the holidays Christmas-related? Just wondering if you could give me an idea of what holidays you've included in this. Thanks -

  3. Hope, this unit looks absolutely AMAZING! I LOVE your design style!

  4. I just purchased this. Did you only research online, or did you perhaps use some read aloud books to go with each country? How do you access the information with the QR codes?


  5. I love the paper bag book! I used your end of year paper bag book last year and the students loved it! This is definitely on my wishlist! So cute! :)

  6. THis is my second paper bag book I have gotten from you and just love it. I have a problem though with Mexico. I feel like I really need to teach about Mexico but we are not allowed to talk about any thing religious in our district. Would you be able to send me just that one page with as an editable file so that I can change it to leave out any wording on Jesus. What I thought I could do is just write about the decorations they use, mainly the poinsettia.
