The Night Before Lucky the Leprechaun's St. Patrick's Day

You only have a couple more days to listen to me go on and on about Lucky visiting our classroom, I promise!  But, after an evening of prepping, I think I am finally ready to show my students a magical visit was had by Lucky the Leprechaun.  Not only did he shrink our hats, he left us magical rocks that turn to gold when put in Lucky's Magical Solution, and he brought us each a four leaf clover!  Also, I know so many who do this tradition at home with their own children, but tonight a very special friend captured their evening with photos for me. Thank you AA!  Happy St. Patrick's Day to all and I hope your day is as magical as Lucky has made ours.






Not only will my students be finding a secret message on what to do with their magic rocks hidden around the room, but they will also be doing a constructed response telling what they think Lucky did to shrink their hats!  You can find the Lucky freebies here:

Grab my bundled kit for all the things to make implementing this project SO easy (includes all the directions and extras you will want!)  and MAGICAL!  Start a tradition in your classroom that your students will never forget or for your child at home to always remember (the kit/book includes both a home and school version)!

I Just Made Your St. Patrick's Week Easier

My favorite week is upon us...if you are a regular reader, you know that I look forward to this week to provide a magical experience for my kiddos who work so, so, so hard.   Our favorite, magical leprechaun Lucky pays us a visit and our whole week is full of surprises and fun from him.  Over the years, I have added freebies to make his visit more personal and more fun...but, today, I compiled them all together in one place so you can easily store, access and prepare them for this week! (Okay, so the secret is I originally did it for myself and then realized with just one quick more step I can share it with you and make your life easier as well!).

Included is an actual to do list, shopping list and what to prepare list just for your special day.  Not that it is all that difficult, but it will just make your life so much easier this week.

Let's Prepare for an UNFORGETTABLE & MAGICAL St. Patrick's Day!


There is just something about St. Patrick's Day I love...I guess maybe it is the time of the year that NEEDS some fun injected into it coupled with the magic mischief that leprechauns like to bring to the classroom!
My favorite part of the day is the hats that my students make and leave for Lucky the Leprechaun to shrink to his head size that night....I've always had the legend (completely fiction and made up by me in case you were wondering) written in poem form, but, this year, I decided to take it up a notch and put it in book form to bring the legend more to life for my students.

You can print it off in any size you wish (or project it on the big screen!), laminate it, and share it with your students!  Then they'll be ready to decorate their Styrofoam cup to leave out for Lucky, so he can shrink it and bring them treats the next day on St. Patrick's Day!

I printed it off in 3 different sizes to see which I like best.  I love the booklet size, but I know the kiddos will LOVE the one I enlarged onto 11x17 paper!  Of course, regular size copy paper works just fine, too!
