This is a magical month with lots of stories about leprechaun shenanigans, rainbows and pots of gold. We can’t forget the story of St. Patrick and how he was kidnapped, sold as a slave only to later change the history of a nation and the world.

A Note From Mrs. Fennessy

This month the students will explore Fractured Fairy Tales. This is a story we already know yet the characters, setting or plot are slightly changed. Fractured Fairy Tales boost reading skills and build fluency. I know the students will enjoy this read-a-loud fun and acting out some of these stories.

Featured Titles

  • Little Late Riding Hood
  • Cinderella is so Annoying
  • Yours Truly, Goldilocks
  • Rafunzel
  • Slurping Beauty
