This has a Reading Section (paragraphs numbered) telling the adventurous life story of St. Patrick including with some dialog, two Word Searches and their Answers Keys about the story in terms of religious or spiritual literature, and a Multiple-Choice Test.
Note that words in this learning pack can be highlighted then moved about, deleted, the fonts varied, text enlarged, etc.
It also has a helpful suggestions page regarding the following Common Core State Standards synthesized for grades 5-12 and with primary overlapping:
ELAS.R:IT.1 through .10 regarding Support,Central idea, Introduction of key persons, events, ideas; Meanings of words, phrases, How parts fit into overall structure,Author's point of view/purpose, Information in different media/formats, List and evaluate arguments and claims, Comparing and contrasting events by different authors, Reading with good comprehension.
Next comes a page on how you can easily teach Higher Order Thinking Skills in regard to the St Patrick story.
After that there is a St. Patrick, Easter And Spring Vocabulary that has select words in English and Spanish. That helps makes this product also useful for any ESL students of Spanish background whom you have now or may have in the future.
There are one-page articles titled “Where St. Patrick Was Born” and also “St. Patrick’s Day In Ireland,” the latter being accompanied by a Word Search activity and its Answers Key. The word search also includes some handy, useful geographical information about Ireland.
Finally, there is a St. Patrick’s Day Game Puzzle. You can run off copies, have students tear their copies into the desired number of pieces of paper (e.g. 15) then glue them back together on a separate piece of paper.
As seen here and in the thumbnail photo samples, St Patrick’s Adventures Christian Learning Pack has real academic meat to it, and you and students you have in home, parochial or Christian church school setting will also love the fun activity components.
MANY OF the products in my TpT store mention and support educational standards such as are used in various states, districts and also the Common Core State Standards written and developed by the National Governors’ Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers © Copyright 2010. The afore-mentioned do not endorse, sanction or approve this publication or any other publication/s by this author/publisher. Any use of “aligned with,” “aligned to” or the like simply mean in the supportive spirit of and again do not state or imply an endorsement.

Attractive, professional looks, 8. Many resources with some Spanish to help ESL/ELL students to not be totally left out; 9. the prices are right; and, 10: you’ll love it your students stay busy learning like happy bees at the honey hive of knowledge, your classroom, even as they have in mine since these have been teacher and students-tested.
SPANISH used in some resources in my store is more the informal Latino Spanish actually used by most students from Latin America than the formal Castillian of Spain; so there are some differences in grammar, spelling and or vocabulary even as there are with American and British English.
Thanks for considering this, please come again and be telling friends of this store, its Freebies, etc.
