***Feedback from teachers***
"My students loved all of the close read materials, but the Mardi Gras was their favorite. We completed this close read while we waited for our school to go into the hallway for our own Fat Tuesday Parade. Perfect engagement while we waited with excitement!"
"We had so much fun doing these activities yesterday! The kids were engaged and loved learning more about Mardi Gras! Thanks for your hard work and creativity :)"
"My students and I have loved using every part of this product! My students especially like getting to color once they complete their close read questions. Thanks for the suggestion on using the Venn diagram to compare and contrast the fiction and nonfiction passages. I now have a bulletin board full of great Mardi Gras activities. I would definitely recommend this product!"
