Wixie ideas for St. Patrick's Day

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Mar 12, 2019 8:18:00 AM

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 activity templates that connect to St. Patrick's Day themes. From scratch art, to skip counting, sorting, and creative writing, use these templates to make technology integration easy!

To find these activities, log in to your teacher account and type "patrick" in the search field at the top.

When you find a template you want to use, select the three dots below or next to it to assign it to students.

Write Limericks

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 typing "poetry" or "limerick" in the search field at the Wixie home page.

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!

Use the Image button to add images from Wixie's media library.

You can find clip art for St. Patrick's Day in the Holidays folder and other common picture books in the Books folder in Wixie's library panel. This makes it easy to create your own templates that connect to content in the story.

Happy St. Patrick's Day and may the "luck o' the Irish" be with you!
