About the Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day Paired Passages

This resource includes two sets of paired passages (four passages total). One set for is Valentine’s Day and one is for St. Patrick’s Day.

Here is a snapshot of the passages:

Set 1 (Valentine's Day Paired Passages):

Two texts about Cupid: one is a nonfiction text about the legend of Cupid and one is a fiction story featuring Cupid as the main character

Set 2 (St. Patrick's Day Paired Passages):

Two informational texts about St. Patrick’s Day: one text about the origin and traditions of the holiday and one specifically about St. Patrick’s Day parades

Each paired passage set includes the following:

  • 4 Constructed Response Questions that require information or knowledge from both texts.
  • A Highlight Your Evidence Printable that requires the student to dig deeply into both texts to find evidence to support a conclusion.
  • A Writing Prompt that requires the students to integrate details from both texts.

The paired passages and the activities are available in THREE versions:

  • Traditional Worksheet Version
  • Interactive Notebook Version
  • Digital Version for Google Slides (see more details below)

About the Digital Paired Passages

The digital paired passages have been created for use with Google Slides.

The paired passages and practice pages have been redesigned in a horizontal format and with color.

The students will type their responses directly onto the slides. They will also use moveable semi-transparent yellow rectangles to highlight text evidence.

See the video preview for more details about the digital paired passages for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day.
