Leprechaun Verb Review


I just love how this little leprechaun verb review turned out.  I am all about St. Patrick's day and was a wee bit anxious to do a leprechaun activity.  Ha!  So I kicked off our morning with a fun leprechaun story.  I followed the story by having a student come up to the front of the room.  I happened to have 1 boy wearing green so I chose him and introduced him as Leprechaun Larry.  I pretended that something wasn't quite right with Leprechaun Larry.  I moved him this way and that.  I finally made a grand Aha gesture and decided Leprechaun Larry was too tall and told him to get on his knees.  The kids roared at this.  Now, if I had my wits about me, I would have had a leprechaun hat to put on him as well.   At this point we generated a list of verbs that Leprechaun Larry could do.  They were all over this and came up with excellent verbs.  I wrote them all down on our anchor chart.  When we had a good list I sent the kids back to their seats armed with 5 flag post its.  They chose 5 verbs from our Leprechaun Larry chart and wrote one on each post it flag.  I then had them write 5 sentences, 1 for each verb.  They placed the word on the post it directly into their sentence.  I had them illustrate one sentence when they were done.  I think my firsties did a great job!!
