Here is a fun and challenging set of activities for St. Patrick's Day! I copy the story problems and multi-meaning word practice back-to-back for a great morning warm-up.It saves paper, too!
Have you ever challenged your students to write a narrative detailing how they would capture a leprechaun? This product has everything you need to create this adorable product! We all know leprechauns love to hoard their gold. How would your students detail how they would protect their gold if they were a leprechaun? Let the fun begin!
Note: The story problems included are challenging, so please take than into consideration. I designed them for my high math group of second graders. If you have questions, or would like for me to send you a sample, just ask! I'll be happy to do so.
FEEDBACK -- Please take a moment to provide feedback (and get your purchase credit). I appreciate it, and it is very helpful to me!
