Just a Little Irish Making Words Freebie!

Hello, Teaching Friends!

Title explanation: I'm just a little Irish - isn't everyone in March? Actually, I'm even less than many people. My grandchildren are a tiny fraction Irish - does that count? Does it flip back from the next generation to us? ;)  ☘️

The other meaning of the title, of course, is that I have a little seasonal freebie for you! Making words activities are so fun for kids, and as they manipulate the letters to make words, our students are also gaining skills with recognizing and using spelling patterns, inflectional endings, prefixes, and suffixes.

This activity has two levels of difficulty. The first level has students make words from the letters in "leprechauns". The second level is the same, but your students aren't given the word leprechauns and must discover it by rearranging all of the letter cards.

There are recording sheets for both levels. Just to save you a few moments of time, your free download also includes a list of many of the words that can be made with "leprechauns"!

Looking for a little more green? Here's a set of word cards, sentences, and pointers for your pocket chart center. See it here at TPT!

Happy Teaching!
