PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity was created for students to practice reading for the purpose of gaining specific information, compiling that information, analyzing that information, inferring, and writing to inform.

Students read about either the three birthday boys or three birthday girls. While reading, they must identify the specific likes of that child and list them on the organizer. They will also read the three lists of birthday presents in order to determine which pile of presents matches with each child. Students will track their findings on their organizer. There is only one perfect pile of presents for each child. You can then have your students write in complete sentence how they knew which pile of presents matched which child. They will prove their findings!

Differentiation: Included is the option to have students read a list of what each child likes or to read a paragraph of what each child likes.

Use as whole group, small group, partner work, or independent work based on the needs of your students.

Extension Provided: Now have your students write a paragraph about themselves sharing what they like to do or what they enjoy. Then students will create a list of presents to match their likes. They will not write their name on either paper. Then students can work on these to learn more about classmates!

Please ask me any questions you have BEFORE purchasing. You can e-mail me at mstegeler@gmail.com.

Every year I have a "Birthday" themed day in my classroom - these activities will be absolutely perfect. I love how unique this packet is! I've never seen anything like it. I love how many higher-level thinking skills are involved and I think the kids will really get into the 'detective' or 'mystery' component!

so, so, so creative! i do wish that the gifts were more gender neutral - the children can guess, 'that's a girl table' or 'that's a boy table' by some of the gifts.

As noted in the description I created this with the intention of giving the three boys or three girls to a student to work on. I am sorry if you misunderstood that. Thanks for visiting my shop and leaving feedback.

I am really excited to use this pack. I think the kids will really be able to relate to scenerio so inferring should be much easier.
