This read-and-retell activity is a great chance for your students to learn about St. Patrick and to practice reading comprehension, retelling, and summarizing all in one activity.
This activity contains three leveled readings (all at different reading levels). Students read the passage, write the keywords in a box, then cover the reading and use the keywords to retell the story. Finally, students use the keywords to write a summary of the passage.
Originally developed for my 6th and 7th grade ESOL students, these texts are ideal for students in grades 3-5, or low level readers in middle school.
