Enjoy this fun, NO PREP close reading file for St. Patrick's Day- Grades 3-6!
Students will learn about the history of St. Patrick, including his early life, what he has contributed to the celebration of St. Patrick's Day, facts about Ireland, shamrocks, and leprechauns.
With this file, I give many ideas on how to use the file; you just choose what will work the most appropriately for your students: whole group, small groups, and/or centers. I've included the following in this awesome file:
*10 Task Cards that contains the St. Patrick's Day text, estimated at about 800L for 3rd-6th grade. Graphic organizers to use specifically with the task cards.
*Scavenger Hunt for Key Details using the Task Cards
*Text-Dependent Questions to ask during whole class or small group discussions.
*Graphic organizers that meet ALL of the reading informational standards- choose which ones best meet your students' needs - so many to choose from!
*Writing prompts and graphic organizers for ALL 3 of the writing standards for opinion, informative, and narrative writing used within the close reading lesson plans.
Perfect for your Literacy instruction anytime during the month of March- there's enough to do for 1-2 weeks, depending on how you use it!
