With ideas of luck, leprechauns, rainbows, and gold, it's easy to get students excited about St. Patrick's Day.
Here are some ways your primary learners can use Wixie’s tools to combine text, images and voice narration to connect to curriculum and learning during your St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
Complete St. Patrick's Day-themed activities
Wixie’s curriculum library includes several pre-made activities that connect to St. Patrick's Day. From scratch art, to skip counting, sorting, and creative writing, use these activities to make technology integration easy!
To find these activities, log in to your teacher account. Open to the Activities tab, browse the March Month-by-Month folder in the Curriculum Library, find an activity you want to use, and click to assign it to students.
St. Patrick's Day is the perfect time to get your students writing limericks.
A limerick is a five line poem. Lines one, two and five rhyme and each line has 9 syllables. Lines three and four rhyme and each line has 5 syllables. Limericks have a clever ending and often use word play.
Wixie includes a Poetry-Limerick template you can use to guide student writing. You can find and assign this activity by browsing the March Month-by-Month folder at your Activities tab or by typing "poetry" in the search field.
Tell Leprechaun Stories
Many students design traps to catch a leprechaun on St. Patrick's Day. Extend student work by having them write a story about the experiences of a leprechaun.
Read a story like Justine Korman's Luckiest Leprechaun to your students. Like the dog in the story, have your students share what happened when they became friends with a leprechaun!
Happy St. Patrick's Day and may the "luck o' the Irish" be with you!
