St. Patrick's Day Freebie- Jamie O'Rourke

I love, love, love Tomie dePaola books!  Who doesn't?  One of my favorites that I read every year is Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato.  If you haven't read it then you must DEAR! Okay, so maybe not DEAR (drop everything and read) right now, but definitely check it out.  

Have you visited Ireland?   I actually traveled to Ireland in 2000 for the St. Patrick's Day Parade.  I was in it with my college dance team.  It was the most AMAZING experience I ever had.  I also performed for the Lord Mayor's Ball in Dublin, which was an honor.  I spent many days shopping and eating lots of Cadbury Chocolate.  Oh, how I miss those days!  But, I do want to go back.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day and my longing to be in that far away land, here is a freebie for you (or a few).  I created some comprehension related thinking maps for summarizing and comparing and contrasting.  Also, a writing activity for comparing and contrasting and a little Jamie O'Rourke Craftivity.  Enjoy my friends!
