August 2016 HolidaysTeachers - check out our fun holidays and occasions for August 2016!

Holiday links will bring you to either a thematic unit at Apples4theteacher.com or another website that offers more information about the holiday. Being creative in your teaching makes learning fun.

Some holidays have nothing to do with teaching. We just think they're crazy and fun. That's because we realize our teachers need a life too - so celebrate !

For Apples4theTeacher.com links, you may find the following teacher resources: information about the holiday or occasion, thematic book lists, short stories, poetry, worksheets and other printables, craft ideas, recipes, articles of interest, songs and plays. Holiday kid activities include: interactive coloring pages, jigsaw puzzles, scramblers and interactive games. Use the children's activities to integrate literacy. Coloring pages can be used as story starters or journal pages. Word search games can be used to introduce vocabulary and dictionary skills.

Below you will find events and holidays for August 2016 broken down by day. Weekly and monthly observances can be found toward the bottom of the page.

NOTE: As new thematic units are added on the website, links will be updated.
