We listened to an Irish Folktale about a lazy Irishman that plants a magic potato seed that he gets from a leprechaun and ends up with a HUGE potato that fed the families around him for a whole year! The families all worked together to dig the potato up and got to share the potato when they finally got it up. This story is told in honor of the Irish Potato Famine back in the 1800’s by Tomie DePaola. After we finished reading the story we each got to make a large potato and turn it into something else and we then wrote about what they created…so these are not just ordinary potatoes…enjoy!
