I can’t believe St. Patrick’s Day is already here! Last week, we had Spirit Week, so it feels like we are barely having any time to do fun St. Patrick’s Day activities.
Our last piece to glue was the red (or orange construction paper) beard. I made it extra long so we could write sentences on it.
I read a book, The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day, to the students about how sneaky little leprechauns are, and we made a tree map of “A leprechaun, is or has.”
After we brainstormed using our tree map, the students went back to their desks to write 1-2 sentences about a leprechaun. After they wrote their sentences, they traced it in marker so the words would be more visible. They also drew the face in marker.
I must say, I was really impressed with their sentences! Here are more pictures of our leprechauns and pots of gold…

Practice letter formation with these independent, engaging, and zero-prep. printables! Use them for whole group, homework, small group, or for students that need extra practice with writing their letters.

wow – those are some good cutting skills! Maybe some of my 2nd graders can learn from your kids – ha!
These are too cute!
This is great! Makes me a little sad we are missing St. Patty's Day due to our Spring Break.
Thanks for sharing!

We spend so much money as teachers in kindergarten, it is nice to see someone giving away things! Alot of these blogs (not this one!) have become stores…
