Folktale Fun Irish Leprechaun Fun

I love reading folktales to the students and try to find as many as I can to help build the sense of story!  The students also love to retell when they get a chance.

We have been working on the story Jamie O’Rourke and the Big Potato by one of my favorite authors, Tomie dePaola. Click on the picture to find the book on Amazon.
You can also find a great video on You Tube.

The students then created shamrocks with tissue paper and gloss acrylic.

 First, place tissue paper on plain white paper and cover with gloss acrylic,  Wait for it to dry

 Trace shamrock shape on back with sharpie.

Cut along the black lines and turn over for a shiny shamrock.

Then the students used Chatterpix to make the shamrock talk!  It was so much fun to see the growth of language skills from the beginning of the year when we did shark reports. Click here to see the shark reports from the beginning of the year.

Check out the great “Talking Shamrock!”

We shared it on SeeSaw for all parents and friends to see!
