What says St. Patrick’s Day more than leprechauns? After reading a story, get students to use recycled materials to make their their own leprechaun traps. They will use the story's setting as inspiration for their projects!
This literature-based lesson teaches students about answering key questions and understanding a character's point of view. It'll have young readers roaring, thumping, and having tons of fun as they imitate story characters.
Help students prepare for reader’s workshop and practice reading comprehension by sharing about books they’ve read. After taking turns telling a partner all about their chosen books, students will write or draw about what their partner shared.
