Looking for an interactive way to include St. Patrick's Day into your writing? Then this resource just may work for you!
Included in this product are the following writing prompts for different types of writing (author's purpose - to persuade [persuasive writing], to inform [expository writing], and to entertain [narrative writing]):
♣ How to Catch a Leprechaun
♣ The Day I Caught a Leprechaun
♣ My Leprechaun: Descriptive Writing
♣ My Leprechaun's Portrait
♣ Leprechaun for Sale
♣ Also includes tips on how to use this resource in your classroom
♣ Also includes a printable "Types of Writing" page for your students to have as a reference page for their writing/interactive notebooks
Tip: Tip #1 – Print a copy of the “Types of Writing” page to glue into writing or
interactive notebooks for reference
Tip #2 – Use each prompt as a consecutive tool – first the students describe the
steps on how to catch a leprechaun (*bonus* have students create a
leprechaun trap!); second, have the students write about the ‘day I caught a
leprechaun’ (*Bonus* see tip #3 for skit idea); third, now that the students
have caught their leprechauns, have them practice their descriptive writing
skills by using their five senses (really encourage using their imaginations with
this one!) and determine what tone/mood the leprechaun creates when he/she
is around; fourth, have them use their visualization skills to bring their
leprechaun to life! They can draw and color/paint their leprechaun as they see
him/her in their minds (*Bonus* have the students take it a step further and
use different materials – cloth, fabric, cotton balls, real clovers, glitter, etc. to
make each leprechaun come to life! They can even make a funny recording to
introduce their leprechaun and attach a QR code to their artwork with a
prerecorded video/sound bit for others to hear); finally, after all that work &
now that they’ve hit the ‘jackpot’ by catching their leprechaun, students can
sell their leprechauns by persuading others to purchase their little friend
Tip #3 – Have students put on a skit for the class by acting out their narratives
using a form of technology; be sure to Include costumes & props!
Tip #4 – Encourage your students to decide if their leprechauns are funny, or
maybe their leprechauns clean a lot? or does homework? or creates mischief
wherever he/she goes. Surely, your students will have a blast with the
different combinations they can create!
***BONUS TIP** Make this cross-curricular as you include math with measuring boxes, clothes, hats, shoes, etc. as your students bring their leprechauns alive!
