St Patrick's Day Reading Comprehension, Spelling, & more - Reading Mystery

This print and go St Patrick's Day Reading Mystery incorporates a range of ELA skills in one. The main focus is for students to read the text carefully, and reread to complete the activities.
Students must complete the tasks after reading each passage to discover clues. Each clue requires students to critically think to decide which suspects they can eliminate from their suspect list. The last suspect remaining is who needs to be arrested for the 'Fool's gold.'
There is a Video Hook included for optional use. It has been designed to ask questions about what is going on? That’s when they must read to find out.  It can be viewed here.

Calculator Word Fun Math Game Task Cards

These calculator word fun task cards are a fun and engaging way for your students to practice math computation tasks (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). 
Do you remember typing numbers into a calculator and then flipping it over to see a word? Maybe you typed in .07734 to see the word hello? Now your students will have the same great memories as they practice math skills, and then check their answers using a calculator. 
These task cards can be used as a math center, with small groups, for fast finishers, or even as a whole class scavenger hunt.
You can use the cards alone, or use the task card answer sheets included.
I have included 48 task cards including 24 whole number cards and 24 decimal cards to allow for differentiation.
