talk like a leprechaun

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya. Here are some St. Patrick’s Day activities that are more than a worksheet! Enjoy!

Talk Like a Leprechaun

Above is a fun list of Irish slang. There are tons of ways you can use it for a quick, easy, and fun way to get kids thinking creatively. Perhaps you can encourage students to use the phrases as they talk today, or you can use them when you speak to the kids. “Pull your socks up!” (i.e. get busy) is a great teacher-y thing to say! Below is list of fun creative writing prompts that you may use with the list, too. Makes a great center or morning work, and it’s FREE! Just click here to grab it, or you can click on any of the images.

  1. HI, Sarah!

    Thanks for sharing the link to our St. Patrick’s Day script for Readers Theater! Readers Theater integrates so many wonderful skills in one delightful activity. I hope your readers enjoy the script and the other free ones on our website.

    Also, I applaud you for staying home with your baby (or babies now?). You’ll NEVER give up being a teacher. 🙂 Soon you’ll probably be teaching “cottage classes” with their friends at your home. 🙂
