The book How to Catch A Leprechaun by Adam Wallace is loved by students and teachers, but it can be difficult to find activities that fit for Special Education Classrooms! Here are 5 activities for How to Catch a Leprechaun for you to use with special education students.
- Read the Book aloud to your class. You can also watch a video read aloud of the book on youtube here.
2. Sequence and fill in the story map identifying the title, setting, characters, and plot in the whole group setting to review the story.
3. Break off into small groups and work on sequencing and story maps individually at the students level.
4. Review vocabulary and use clip cards to practice and review the vocabulary words that go along with the story.
5. Complete a fun craft (with visual directions!) that goes along with the activity!
6. Finally, use comprehension worksheets for assessment at the end of the week!
All of these activities are available in my How to Catch a Leprechaun Book Companion set here!
When I did book focused weeks I often read the book each day, then completed one activity to go along with it. This made for a fun theme week and really gave me the chance to assess at the end of the week!
