Have a Shamrockin’ Spring Fling!
An Original Story By: Hope Stuart
This book was inspired by my passion for helping children to develop their organizational discipline, along with Apple A Day’s super behavior management system for March: We Have Shamrockin’ Good Behavior! This cutesy book sequences the process of cleaning out, inventorying and organizing desks while exposing students to Common Core vocabulary and various ways to record and analyze data. Set to rhyme, this book is sure to be a favorite among your little organizers, while providing them with an authentic process for recording data both as individuals and as a class. Don’t forget to celebrate after all the cleaning and data collection has been accomplished. The best part is... having a Shamrockin’ Spring Fling Party at the end of this lesson!
To increase each student’s organizational discipline while reinforcing their data collection skills. This book will enhance each student’s exposure to the Tier 2 vocabulary words referenced within the Common Core ELA standards.
