After teaching my students all about rhyme scheme and limericks, and brainstorming words that rhyme (so many got hung up on words that rhyme with clover… there aren’t many.), we became Irish Poets. We wrote our limericks on special green paper and then attached it to a large cut out of a shamrock. Students then got creative by decorating their faces. I am always amazed by how many students decorate them with facial hair. It cracks me up every time! After decorating our hairy shamrocks, we created some accordion legs and arms, attached a small shamrock for hands and feet, and hung them up.
I’m sure your students would feel lucky to be able to do this fun craft. 🙂
