Prep was quick and easy.
I printed off the four writing prompts and vocabulary word cards.
(I chose to print them off in color, but there is also a black and white version available if you want to save ink.)
Then I cut out the vocabulary cards and ran them through my laminator to add enough durability that I could use them again next year.
That’s it! My prep was done.
St. Patrick’s Writing Prompts
Since there were four different prompts, I let the kids choose which one they would like to complete first:
- If I had a pot of gold I would…
- How to Catch a Leprechaun
- Pretend you caught a leprechaun. How would you convince him to give you his gold?
- If I was a tiny leprechaun, I would…
Then it was time to engage their imagination and creativity.
Each child wrote their story, using the St. Patrick’s Day vocabulary cards as a reference.
Then we looked over their stories to make sure they had covered the writing reminders: use punctuation, check to spell, look up unfamiliar words and re-read the story to make sure it makes sense.
The kids were excited to work their way through the rest of the writing prompts throughout the week.
And I was excited because they were getting lots of practice writing!
