St. Patty's Day Palooza...yes, already!

I am so being the grocery store and putting out my St. Patty's Day unit when Valentine's Day isn't even over yet!  I hate myself right now!  Anyway, here it is!

I love Tomie DePaola and some of his books are highlighted in our writing program, so I thought it would be perfect to use Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato in this unit for St. Patrick's Day.  I love DePaola's depictions of characters and the ability for my students to relate to his texts.

Along with a study and activities based on the book, there are also math games, language games, and writing activities, and graphic organizers.
