St. Patrick's Day in the Morning Book Activities
St. Patrick's Day in the Morning by Eve Bunting is a fun tale about keeping up with the big kids and celebrating St. Patrick's Day. It is very rich with vocabulary and depth, and it works well for modeling characterization, author's craft, story events and retelling, and using text evidence for questioning. The main character is perfect for story writing too.
