Lucky Thoughts

I can't believe it is already mid March! My class has spring fever as we are approaching our Spring Break next week.  This week, I am doing some St. Patrick's Day lessons. As we recently learned about writing dialogue using proper quotations this leprechaun writing craft helped culminate our learning.

I began by reading this cute story with a great theme of friendship.
At the beginning of the story the leprechaun and dog are at odds with each other over a misunderstanding. But in the end they realize they are true friends.

After reading aloud the story, I opening up a class discussion about what students felt lucky for.
They then wrote their ideas using quotations as if they were lucky leprechaun.

What are you most lucky for? Share your thoughts in the comments.
