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!
