I call it “Make a Rainbow” game, and it is great for assessing articulation carryover, perfect for basic reading comprehension, super for problem solving/reasoning, and just surprisingly challenging for all kids. The object of the game is to collect sticks that form the colors of a rainbow – which is why I love it for March but I use it year ’round. It’s definitely worth the time and effort to put it together with a little paint and craft sticks.
These passages includes questions of all types including those that target inferencing, using evidence from the text to support answers, using context clues, comparing and contrasting, telling main idea, etc. The packet includes art and writing activities, too.

OMG! You have the best ideas! My kids LOVE the Make a Rainbow Game, and, the St. Patty's Cakes??? FORGET ABOUT IT! They LOVED it! I'm going to steal your idea about the necklace. That is soooo great!
Thanks bunches, Mary! That means a ton coming from a pro like you!
