Today we read another famous Irish tale. In the story Clever Tom Fitzpatrick thinks his fortune is made when he captures a leprechaun and forces him to reveal the hiding place of his gold, but the leprechaun is clever too. After we read the story we talked about what would happen if a clever leprechaun came to our school. We all know leprechauns can be kind of sneaky so we were pretty sure he would get into some trouble. We began by brainstorming a list of places he might go and then everyone got to begin writing their own story. This was definitely a chance for the kids to be creative and silly at the same time!!!
After everyone was finished writing their story we divided up into small groups and shared our leprechaun adventures with our friends.We also made the cute layered shamrock art projects this afternoon after we finished writing.
