We are on spring break this week so we did ALL the celebrating last week! We even had a visit from the leprechaun… my room was a MESS! If you saw our stories you got a glimpse of it, haha.
My shirt says “Luckiest Teacher Ever” and I definitely feel that way…most days 😉 You can find my shirt linked here!
I gave the students an option to make a leprechaun trap at home or they can make one in the classroom. They did an AMAZING job on their traps! Here are a few:
Sadly we did not catch the leprechaun… but they were so excited to see how messy the room was (I wasn’t) haha!
We even made little fruit loop rainbows to attract our leprechaun to our traps! These were so easy to make, all you need is pipe cleaners, fruit loops and donuts (or some use large marshmallows).
Thursday we had a fun afternoon where we had a little competition to see which group could make the tallest tower with lucky charm marshmallows and craft sticks!
Each student made a guess to see how many coins would fit in the pot before it sank/tipped over. The answer was 34! I was very impressed!
We also did this fun lucky charms addition sheet! They first had to sort their marshmallows and then they practiced some addition. Their favorite part was getting to eat the marshmallows once they finished!
We finished our day with some green snacks left by the leprechaun! Green Jell-o and shamrock cookies. I figured they probably wouldn’t want broccoli or green beans… so this is the best I… I mean the leprechaun could find!
Celebrating this holiday was the best as a teacher and I am already planning what I want to do next year! What are some things you like to do in the classroom for St. Patrick’s Day??
