This Leprechaun Feelings Craftivity is targeting pragmatics (feeling words and why), syntax (making sentences), and semantics (receptive/expressive vocabulary). It also presents a great opportunity to discuss how situations can make people feel different and that’s okay!
Prep: Print, cut and laminate the Leprechaun Situation Cards and Carrier Phrase cards. Print a Leprechaun and Feeling Wheel sheet for each student.
Materials: Markers/Crayons, brads for each student, scissors
Craft: Have the students decorate the Leprechaun then cut out around the box and hat as well as his face (they made need help with that part). Cut out the feelings circle. Poke a brad through the circle on the bowtie and through the middle of the feeling circle.
Activity: Draw a Leprechaun Situation Card and have the students choose how their leprechaun feels by turning the face. Ask them why their leprechaun feels that way. Use the carrier phrase cards to scaffold the skill for students who need a visual.
