Are you thinking ahead for March? I love most holidays and St. Patrick's Day is one of them. I don't know what it is about Leprechauns and shamrocks but it just makes things seem more fun. So I created a huge bundle of activities for March. All of the activities are themed around St. Patrick's Day but are standards related. Check it out. This is my FIRST BIG BUNDLE...I hope it sells well. :)
One of the activities included is 6 writing prompts. I wanted to integrate Author's Purpose so I created 2 prompts about Leprechauns for each of the following: Persuade, Inform, Entertain. I did this once with Reindeer at Christmas and the students loved it.
