Easter Close Reads

Hi friends! Can you believe Spring is finally here?? I don't know about ya'll....but I'm still waiting for Winter to hit. We got by with a pretty mild one this year and I am shocked!!! Semi sad, too, for the lack of snow days. ha ha It just scares me...I'm afraid April Showers will mean April Snow Showers. Eek! Anyways....with Spring here - I am officially thinking ahead and looking forward to Easter. I LOVE EASTER!!! All the spring decor, yummy candy, egg hunts, and so's such a fun time to be in the classroom. Several of you have asked about an Easter Close Read and I just wanted you to know that Jennifer and I have LISTENED. We made two for you. 
The Tale of Peter Rabbit and The Easter Bunny's Assistant
Two of my favorite books! Both units are packed full of awesome resources...sure to meet ALL of your students' needs. We've included tons of extras, too, so you can bridge that cross curriculum connection. Resources such as STEM challenges, an informational text, history on the holiday, and more. You can literally hit ALL subjects with one close read. Whoo hoo!
If you're like me, you love art activities and are always looking for something to display in the hallway. Well, look no further. We've got you covered. If you purchase BOTH close reads (in our Easter Bundle) you can score this Easter Craftivity for free. Have students assemble this adorable bunny and then choose any printable of your choice to attach. I picked the Easter Bunny's Assistant Application!! Viola...instant bulletin board. Yes, please. 
Just click the image above to check out our Easter Bundle. By purchasing this, you are getting both close reads and the Easter craftivity for $15! Any other book ideas that we can turn into Close Reads? Let us know. We can't get enough of these!!
