As you are making your plans for November, don’t forget to kick it off with a celebration of this holiday! These two texts are great way to bring the Day of the Dead to life in your classroom and expose your students to new cultural traditions!

This is the perfect book for an SEL lesson on making friends, being a class family, and “seeing” others for who they are. You can use it as a mentor text for characterization and dialogue, too!
I love the poetic rhythm of this story and the way the pages beautifully unfold the events of this celebration! You can easily use this book to teach visual thinking strategies and context clues vocabulary.
