How to Catch a Leprechaun
How to Catch a Leprechaun - Adam Wallace,Andy Elkerton

This book is about the many ways kids can try to catch a leprechaun. The children in the book come up with some great and crazy ideas from using a simple box to having a high tech security system. This very entertaining book keeps the students interested in the story and opens up many possibilities for fun projects. I would use this book around St. Patrick's Day and use it to read aloud to the students. One possible activity to do is to make our own leprechaun trap in the classroom.

Green Shamrocks
Green Shamrocks - Eve Bunting,Joëlle Dreidemy

I really enjoy having read-alouds that go with the theme of a main holiday of the month. This book obviously would be read near St. Patrick's Day. It is a very simple story that could be used to teach about problem and solution. The students could also complete a craft during a St. Patrick's Day celebration.

How To Catch A Leprechaun
How to Catch a Leprechaun - Adam Wallace,Andy Elkerton

How to Catch a Leprechaun is a new book about a mischievous leprechaun! This book takes the reader down the road of mischief for the Leprechaun. The book would be so cute to do a read aloud with grades K-4th. There are so many activities and lessons that could go along with this book during the week of St. Patrick's Day. Since the book challenges children to make an invention to stop the Leprechaun, the students could be put into groups to make the invention.  Technology could be integrated into this lesson by having the older grades type out their invention, or they could write a narrate their own story about a leprechaun. This book could also be studied with sequencing. Overall, this is such a fun book! I recommend this book for all teachers.

The Night before ST. Patrick's Day -Lexile level AD660L
The Night Before St. Patrick's Day - Natasha Wing,Amy Wummer

The Night before ST. Patrick's Day, written by Natasha Wing, is a book about two children and how they prepare for ST. Patrick's Day. It is very similar to Twas the Night before Christmas, but is based on ST. Patrick's Day instead. I love this book because I love ST. Patrick's Day. To me this holiday sometimes is underrated in schools, and I believe that any kind of Holiday is a good way to bring some fun into the classroom. There are many different activities that we could do after reading this book, for example, I could take them outside on a four leaf clover hunt. I could also have them make their own four leaf clovers and have them write the theme, setting, characters, and plot on each separate leaf.That is way you can have a reading comprehension lesson as well as a fun activity related to the book. I could also have all the children wear green that day to add a little bit more fun to the activity and day. I would use this book for Kindergarten to Third grade.
