St. Patty's Inferencing Lesson

 I love St. Patrick's Day (even though I'm not an ounce Irish!). To kick off our lucky month we did an inferencing lesson where the kids had to describe something greeen.  First we charted anything we could think of that was green.  We got so many great answers this year from animals (frogs and turtles) to characters (Shrek, Hulk).  The list went on and on!  Then each kid picked one "green item" from the list to keep as a secret.  Then they wrote 3 clues about their object and wrote it on this kind of flippy shamrock cut out with the answer inside.  Afterwards the kids read their clues to each other and then made guesses.  They LOVED that part!  Now they are hanging in the hallway for others to guess...
