Help me give my students some new books to read about Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students come to school every day excited and ready to learn! They are eager to learn and try new things. I want them to know that I believe in them and they can do anything! I teach at a Title I, pre-k through 2nd-grade school in inner-city Ohio where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most of the students are living at or below the poverty line. My students are creative, caring, and very energetic. Our classroom is a hands-on learning community. I work with children who are four and five-year-olds.
Their ability to love learning excites me to find new and exciting ways to teach things to them.
They love to learn about new things. They love to look up information online together and will ask many questions to learn as much as they can.
The texts I am requesting will be used for our close reads during our literacy lessons each week. Some books I am asking for include How to Catch an Elf, Hanukkah Lights, Celebrate Kwanzaa, Is It Christmas Yet? and Click, Clack, Ho! Ho! Ho!.
I will use fiction and nonfiction books to create a joy of reading in my students.
I will be teaching many of the literacy skills that prekindergarten students should master by the end of the year - unpacking one or more Literacy Skill Focus Standards. These lessons are aligned with the Early Learning Standards in Ohio. Through these weekly themes and texts, my goal is to get students talking about books, making real-life connections, learning life skills, and learning new vocabulary.
