Ordinary Marys Extraordinary Deed Lesson Plans: Close Reading

Ordinary Mary’s Extraordinary Deed is such a great book about random acts of kindness.  I have used in my classroom for years and my class loves it! Naturally, we had to include it in our Engaging Readers Series!   Remember, you don’t have to use these books in order.  For example, this book is included in our December Engaging Readers, but there is nothing the dictates that it has to only be used in December.

Mary finds blueberries and decides to pick them and anonymously gifts them to her neighbor, Mrs. Bishop. This starts a chain reaction.

On Tuesday, we work on recalling text details.  Since this story may be difficult to recall in order, we have students sort cards that are “In the Story” or “Not in the Story.”
