Pin to Win! St. Patrick's Day Printables for Big Kids

 Hello Everybody!  The arrival of March means the onset of shamrock-laden aisles and wishes of four-leaf clovers.  Well, this year is different from all my other years of teaching because it is my very first St. Patrick's Day spent teaching in the classroom.  Luck would have it that St. Patty's Day always fell during our Spring Break or the weekend, but not so this year!  Well, what's an upper grade teacher to do?  Prep to bring the luck of the Irish within our classroom walls, that's what!

I created this pack to engage my 4th graders who need to be digesting passages within the 740-1100 lexile band.  These kiddos also could benefit from a spiral review of various math skills before our statewide testing begins in 20 school days.  Lastly, I threw in a hands-on science project because that's irrefutably their favorite subject!

About the product: This simply easy printables pack comes complete with an answer key, 5 ELA handouts (1 writing, 1 context clues / vocabulary, 3 reading & comprehension), 5 Math handouts, and 1 two-paged science experiment using Lucky Charms marshmallows and water!  In the ELA section, you'll find three St. Patty's Day passages followed by appropriate yet challenging comprehension questions.  (Appropriate for 3rd - 5th grade)

I will give away this unit to the first THREE people to pin the image above.  All you have to do is leave your pin url in the comment section below and tell me you want it!  If you're not one of the lucky lassies to snag this pot 'o gold, it will be on sale until Wednesday.
