St. Patrick’s day is such a magical time where students are thinking about leprechauns, shamrocks, and treasure Oh My! It’s such a great opportunity to capture that excitement in their writing.
Since 7 is my lucky number, here are 7 St. Patrick’s Day themed writing activities are great ways to get students thinking and writing this March.
Using their imaginations to write a narrative story when the magic of the season is so alive is a great way to help meet those narrative writing goals.
This headband is awesome for young children to write about what makes them lucky! If you’d rather, you can add this to a collage, or even attach the shamrocks to strings in order to make a mobile. Another great idea would be to make a large cutout shamrock on a bulletin board and collage it to fill it in with all the ways your students are lucky!
This booklet and brainstorming page go perfectly alongside a leprechaun trap project, whether it’s a home project or school project! This is great procedural writing practice.
Shape poems are such a fun way to practice narrative and descriptive writing. The brainstorming and template page help this beautiful keepsake writing piece come to life. I’ve also used this activity for children to write about what makes them lucky!
Help students realize just how lucky they are to have so many valuable things in their lives. The brainstorming and writing pages make it a low/no prep writing activity.
I love that these pages can be used as response to any read aloud story you already love to share in your classroom. This can also be used alongside a reading center or listening center.
This is a quick and easy one pager for students to report the chaos the leprechaun has caused in their classroom on St. Patrick’s Day!
