Need to spice up your writing block this spring? These 7 March writing prompts are a great way to get your students’ pencils moving.
How to Catch a Leprechaun
Students LOVE the book How to Catch a Leprechaun, and they will love making their own plan to catch one too.
Read the book aloud, have students write out their ideas for catching a leprechaun and top the project off by allowing students to make their own traps for a leprechaun in your classroom.
This can be as intensive or relaxed as you want it to be. Grab the How to Catch a Leprechaun activity on TPT.
If I Found a Pot of Gold
Looking for something a little more creative and a little less messy? Read aloud The Leprechaun’s Gold and have students fantasize about what they would do if THEY found a pot of gold.
Their answers are hysterical and so much fun that students wont even realize they are learning.
Use graphic organizers, checklists and this fun craft to organize writing and align it to the common core with this fun If I Found a Pot of Gold Narrative Writing Project.
My Day with a Leprechaun
If finding a pot of gold isn’t exciting, spending an entire day with the mischievous leprechaun sure is!
Give students time to brainstorm what shenanigans they might get into with the leprechaun.
Afterward, give students time to use graphic organizers and editing checklists to fully flesh out their ideas.
Students will LOVE this “My Day With a Leprechaun” prompt and you will be so impressed with how much detail they are able to add into their stories with these student friendly pages.
The BEST Book
Looking for something to add to your Read Across America Week activities?

All About Chicks
Students have two things on their mind at the end of March… Spring Break and EASTER!
Nothing says SPRING more than baby animals, specifically, baby chicks.
Let students research facts about chicks and then turn their new knowledge into an informative paragraph about baby chicks.
These adorable All About Chicks writing projects make a great spring bulletin board and should not be missed in your March writing activities.
All About Bunnies
If chicks don’t get students excited about spring, bunnies are sure to get students excited for Easter!
Following the same format as the chick project, students learning about bunnies in an informative way is a GREAT way to “touch on Easter” without actually discussing this religious holiday in your classroom.
Don’t sleep on this adorable All About Bunnies writing craft and bulletin board for your collection of March writing activities.
How to Catch the Easter Bunny
For those of you not needing to avoid talking about Easter, fully embrace the fun with a read aloud favorite… How to Catch the Easter Bunny!
After reading aloud this adorable book, give students a chance to write about their ideas for catching the Easter Bunny.
When they are done, students can turn their thoughts into a fun flip book that can be shared at home or hung up as a cute hallway bulletin board.
Grab the How to Catch the Easter Bunny writing pack for your classroom.
