Trying to keep students on-task as the winter holidays approach can be tough! Plus, aren't you always looking for ways to present the different holidays of the season to students in special education in a way that helps them make sense of others' traditions?
If I described your search this holiday season, then this set of adapted books is exactly what you need. These books are interactive with visuals to support vocabulary while reviewing different holiday traditions.
5 Interactive Books
- Winter Holiday Traditions This illustrated book focuses on a few key concepts from the different holiday traditions of Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa.
- Celebrating Hanukkah This illustrated book focuses on the activities of families during Hanukkah.
- Celebrating Christmas This illustrated book concentrates on the activities of many families at Christmas. I’ve chosen to keep it primarily secular, so it does not focus on the religious aspect of Christmas. Instead it focuses on traditions.
- Celebrating Kwanzaa This illustrated book focuses on the activities of families during Kwanzaa.
- Celebrating the Winter Holidays This illustrated book targets verbs and depicts the commonalities of the three holidays.

- The books have the option to find the matching or corresponding picture or the word to complete the sentence.
- The picture cards can be stored on an extension page that have matching pictures. There are 2 options—one has matching pictures and the other is a blank page with no pictures so you can rearrange them.
- You could also switch out so that the student is matching clip art to photos or vice versa by switching which matching pictures are with the book.
