St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner. Although it’s one of the smaller holidays on our calendar, it still represents a chance to talk about culture and tradition. My Spring Playlist on YouTube highlights an old video I made in honor of March 17.
I’ve shared some teaching ideas in the past connected to St. Patrick’s Day. I’d like to offer a new activity for upper level students who could benefit from a review of and expansion on compound modifiers. Please consider using my Finding Four-leaf Clovers_handout. Additional information on compound words was posted back in 2009. This newest activity challenges students to identify compound words by structure and form new ones based on these patterns. Enjoy the creative writing segment!
