|Take your students on a “Leprechaun Hunt” for St. Patrick’s Day! Before the hunt, cut out and decorate this adorable leprechaun template with glitter and sequins. Hide the leprechaun in the lunchroom or cafeteria at your school. Next, cut apart these clues and distribute them to the various clue locations throughout your school (e.g., library, principal’s office and playground). Note: If you need to change the location of any of the clues to fit the circumstances at your school, don’t forget to modify the text of the clues accordingly.
When students arrive, begin the Leprechaun Hunt by reading the first clue aloud to them. Invite them to guess where they should look. Then, as a class, walk to each location, reading the clues as they are revealed along the way. After the class has found the leprechaun, provide students with a copy of their own leprechaun to color, along with the poem to practice reading at home!
