Leprechaun, Leprechaun, What Do You See?
I like to do adapted books with my students and pair it with a simple craft or hands on activity related to the book. The focus for St. Patrick’s Day is often times Rainbows so I created Leprechaun, Leprechaun, What Do You See? I paired the book with a Rainbow Craft for a fun St. Patrick’s day activity!
While reading books, I found my students like to have one word per square so they can follow along with the book as we read together. For this book, the kids have to find both the color and the object that matches for each page. It makes it a little more challenging!
After we finish reading the book we make RAINBOWS! I cut paper plates in half for the rainbow and for some of my students I trace the colors of the rainbow on the paper plate as a guide. If you want to incorporate some fine motor skills have the students cut out their own small squares of all the rainbow colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. You can also have the color squares already prepared for the students. First, I have the students take 3 red pieces to start the rainbow arc.
Next, the student take 6 orange squares and glue them above the red arc.
Continue by gluing the rest of the colors onto the rainbow. Now the Rainbow is complete!!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!!
