Storybook Sunday and Must-Read Monday: St. Patrick's Day Books




I am linking up with Paula's Place Storybook Sunday and Must Read Monday hosted by Teaching Maddeness.  Read aloud time is one of my favorite times of the day with my students.  I look forward to these posts each week to get new ideas for read alouds for my class.  This week, I would like to share a couple of books that I will be reading to my class this week.

Green Shamrocks is an adorable book written by the classic children's author Eve Bunting.   In this story, Rabbit goes into the forest to find the perfect yellow pot to grow green shamrocks in.  Rabbit wants to grow his very own shamrocks so that he can make a necklace to wear in the St. Patrick's Day Parade.  It is almost parade time, when Rabbit discovers that his shamrocks have gone missing.  The children are left wondering if Rabbit will be able to find his shamrocks in time.  This is a precious story of friendship with lovable characters and adorable illustrations!
Here is a little FREEBIE that I created to go with the Green Shamrocks book.  Click on the image above to download a copy of the cut and paste activity to review ending punctuation for sentences.

St. Patrick's Day by Anne Rockwell uses children friendly language and delightful illustrations to share some of the history and traditions of St. Patrick's Day.  This book is a fun way to explain the meaning behind some of the most common St. Patrick's Day traditions.

After reading St. Patrick's Day by Anne Rockwell, I have my kids record their learning on this FREEBIE printable.  You may get a copy of use in your classroom by clicking on the image above. 

I would love to hear from you....what are some of your favorite read aloud books for St. Patrick's Day?
