Somebody Loves You Mr Hatch Close Reading Activities

Looking for the perfect book for your Valentine's Day close reading activities in your classroom? "Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch," by Eileen Spinelli is your match!. Your students will love these close reading activities that are specifically built to compliment this amazing story of kindness and love! It was designed to be used as a close reading routine, each day building on the previous day’s reading and at the end, students work to respond and create based on the text. Although it was designed this way, the unit does not have to be used this way in your classroom. The 5 day lesson plans are perfect for your Valentine's Day reading activities!
