Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Leprechaun Traps hanging from my ceiling. 
I love St. Patrick's Day. It is a fun holiday that isn't too much pressure. My mom always made it really fun growing up too. Just like all of the other holidays it is so much fun with the first graders. Today we planned, wrote about and created our leprechaun traps. This was hilarious! The kiddos were so into it. We had so many crazy creations that they worked so hard on! The end of the day came and they didn't want to leave they were just so determined to catch that leprechaun.

I put foot prints all over the classroom and threw glitter everywhere. 
Then I filled my pot of gold for the kids which is really my Halloween witches caldron with treat bags for the kids. I love target dollar section it seems to just get better and better every time I look. Anyways I bought necklaces, rainbow candy and chocolate coins. Here is a link to the FREE leprechaun note.  

They are going to love it! I plan on showing Holiday Facts and Fun from Discovery Education and completing the rest of my St. Patrick's Day activities. 

In honor of this fun holiday I am having a sale in my TpT store. 10% off until Sunday! Have a great St. Patrick's Day!

  3. This looks like fun! I enjoy making learning fun too. Learning centers made from water bottles, pop-up books, etc. are just a few examples of what I have made for my students to make learning enjoyable.
