---- I offer this SAME passage in two different formats. This particular passage is formatted for interactive notebooks. It is the exact same passage and similar questions just formatted differently from the full page version.
If you would like to purchase the one page passage with 7 text-based questions that go along with the passage, click HERE
. You can then read the description to see which format works best for you.
The passage is a half sheet, so it will work perfectly to glue sideways into an interactive reading notebook. Once glued into the interactive notebook, students can write their thinking out to the side of the passage.
In addition to the passage, there are three flippable activities (all printed on one sheet) for their notebook. One is on the definition of recipient, one focuses on words related to Valentine's Day, and the other focuses on 4 comprehension questions related to the text
In addition to doing this activity as a whole group reading lesson, you could also have students do it during a literacy center. Feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like.
Have fun on Valentine's Day.... it's my favorite holiday to celebrate at school. It just seems like such a happy day to me.
