Celebrate Saint Patrick's Day with your 2nd grade students with these fun leprechaun writing prompts and craftivity!
Just the way students are open to believing in magical elves that come into your classroom around Christmas time, all students are ready to hunt down leprechauns for their pot of gold in March! I love it!
A few years ago, I had a group of first grade students that were enamored with leprechauns. They loved every book I read to them about leprechauns. At recess time, they spent their entire time on their hands and knees looking through the grass blades for signs of leprechauns. And when the classroom looked a little messy, their logical explanation was that it must have been some mischievous leprechauns. (Not them…ha!)
I will never forget, when one of my students, in the middle of a math lesson raised his hand and swore to the class that he had just seen a leprechaun dart by on the floor. As you can imagine, the lesson was abruptly over and the search for a leprechaun began. And really, at that moment… it was funny to see my whole class searching for a tiny, green-suited man!
