Now that school is winding down, teachers often find themselves looking for that extra reading passage to keep kids engaged. I wrote these five original stories, which come complete with activities.
In this bundle, you will find the following:

Nonfiction writing is high on the common core expectations, and this activity is perfect for providing high interest curriculum and current events.

Beware of Cooties
Here’s a bonus story that one cannot buy individually on TPT. I fear it will never find a home due to its shocking ending, but none-the-less, it’s one of my favorites that must be shared. If you dare to share it with the kids, I promise they’ll get a laugh. Enjoy!
I have plenty of stories and reading activities at my TPT store. Won’t you please stop by?
Perhaps you’ve seen the owls circulating Facebook.
I am totally the owl on the right; so to celebrate all of us losing our minds, I’ve created a logic problem about us at the end of the year. It’s called Tired Teachers, and it might give your third through fifth grade students a chuckle when they read about what exhausted teachers do in May.
