St. Patrick's Day Poetry Freebie

Inside: Free leprechaun poem for your classroom. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

Note: This is an updated post.


Every week we learn a poem that becomes part of the kids' "just right reading".  I often give the kids different versions of the same poem, including a fill-in-the-blank and a scramble.

For the scrambled version, I give each child a copy of the mixed-up poem (see below). Their job is to cut out the poem on the lines, put it in the correct order, and glue it onto another sheet.

Usually I send them home with this cut and paste version and the fill-in-the-blank or the regular version goes into their poetry duotangs.

The poem is called The Leprechauns are Marching. I didn't write it and I'm unaware of the author. As far as I know it's in the public domain. But if you happen to know who wrote the poem please let me know and I'll give them proper credit.

  2. I am using this very poem in my classroom right now! :o) I typed it up and each day they have to find something different - for example, today they had to circle all the naming words. I use action words, short vowel words, etc.... Thanks for your share!! :o)
