Outsmarting the Leprechauns
Readers Theater Scripts
Knowing that the little men love Boxty Cakes (Irish Potato Pancakes) and never eat breakfast, helps the pair outsmart their unwanted guests.
This is a good script for older readers to read aloud to younger children on St. Patricks Day! It is also a great script to read aloud any time you are studying Ireland!
For dinner, "Colcannon" is served on the lid of a jelly jar. Next evening, "Dublin Coddle" is served in half an egg shell. Finally "Boxty Cakes" are served in a sewing thimble. This is all part of a divine plan to outsmart the invading leprechauns - and it works! Definitions of three dishes included!
