With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I have the perfect activity that you can put in your lessons plans. This craftivity includes a writing prompt that allows your students to use their imaginations to write about what they would do if they found a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
With this activity, your students will use their imagination to pretend they found a pot of gold and then decide what they would do with that pot of gold.
Steps to Incorporate this St. Patrick’s Day Craft in Your Classroom
Here are the simple steps to adding this craftivity to your Saint Patrick’s Day lesson plans:
- Download the template here.
- Students can then write their response, and decorate the pot of gold.
But what if you have non-writers? Or non-verbal students? Let’s look at some ways we can differentiate this activity for all students to be successful and meaningfully participate.
Ways to Differentiate this March Craft
Picture Cue Options
One way to differentiate is to come up with some fun ideas that you think your students would choose and make those options picture cues to present to your students to choose from and then glue it onto the writing prompt. This gives students who might not be able to verbally tell your what they would possibly do with a pot of gold.
Dictate to Scribe
If you have a child who can verbally tell you what they would do, but is still working on their writing skills, let them tell you what they would do, and write it for them. If they are able to trace, or write with hand over hand assistance, give them the words to trace, or give them that assistance that they need in order to be successful!
So – if you found a pot of gold, what would you do with it? I’d love to hear your responses in the comments below!
