Poetry is not really associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but you can use the occasion as a fun way to learn about limericks, which are fun and easy to write rhyming poems.
This idea from Rock Your Homeschool has links to information about limericks and printable shamrock and four-leaf clover templates, as well as writing paper and tips for devising your own limericks.
This would be fun to do at a class party or to have in the writing center for kids to work on when they have extra time.
You can grab the whole lesson on the blog and subscribe to their newsletter to get access to the printables.
