STOP RIGHT NOW! To purchase an entire day's worth of St. Patrick's fun, go to my store and purchase the entire St. Patrick's Unit! Includes Reading, Writing, Science, and Math!
This writing goes with my "pumped up writing" lesson, but you can do it without. Describe some writing like a deflated balloon: boring, nothing inside, no fun. Writing should be like an inflated balloon. Pumped up with detail, descriptions, and good word choices. Encourage students to add details to this boring St. Patrick's Day paragraph by telling who, what, when, where, how, and why! There are two versions of the paragraph: one narrative about a leprechaun's day and another descriptive about what you would do with a pot of gold. Can be used as whole class activity or go in a pre- or post- holiday writing center. Enjoy!
