Every year we write a Leprechaun Application and my students are obsessed! They all want to be a leprechaun. I love using holiday themes to integrate into our writing because my students become so engaged in it.
After we fill out our application, it's time for the "essay" portion of the application process. I have my students write an opinion piece on why they would make a good leprechaun. They have to have an opening sentences, 2 reasons, and a closing sentence. They turn out SO cute!
