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.
