St. Patrick's Day Goodies

Next week is the week before Spring Break for us, and it's one of my most favorite weeks of every year!  Not because I'm psyched for Spring Break (although I am), but because we will fill the week with St. Patrick's Day-themed activities and leprechaun hi-jinx! 

 
No, I'm not Irish, but I just LOVE LOVE LOVE using this holiday for fun activities in my classroom!  Little sneaky leprechauns are the perfect way to add some excitement to our routine.  We spend all week trying to spot these tricky fellas!  And every year, I have students who swear they see one doing something crazy-naughty!  ;-)

I've shared lots of my St. Patrick's Day ideas and TPT offerings in previous blog posts, such as this one about a FREE writing page I use for a class book...

An emergent reader in my favorite Brown Bear, Brown Bear style...
 Kid-approved Lucky Charms Graph...

 As well as my "recipe" for some magical Leprechaun juice...

FREE Writing Prompts...

And the culminating activity that the kids will always remember - clues to hunt for that pesky leprechaun around your school...


Hunts like this are one of my favorite things to do with Kindergarten students.  They still believe in magic and their imaginations are big enough to eat it all up!

Happy Leprechuan hunting!!  ;)
