Last Minute Pictures of Lucky's Visit (It's not too late for you to do it either!) With a Follow Up Freebie


I am home under doctor's orders, so I had to postpone St. Patrick's Day celebration with my students. Yes, I feel badly...but not quite as bad as I would feel if I couldn't be there to see their faces when Lucky's magic is revealed....plus, who in their right mind would put a substitute through that (not if you ever wanted them to come back, that's for sure!)??
I left some gold coins and Rolos for them, along with a letter that explains the delay,  so that should suffice-- don't you think???
I am resting, just as the doctor ordered (but, do doctors understand that teacher bloggers truly never rest??? shhh...don't tell), but I am resting making some pictures that might help you get through your St. Patrick's Day activities....remember, we teachers celebrate things all week (month?) long, so it is never too late to bring this magic to your classroom, too.
Be creative, it could be simply, Lucky was so busy this year visiting classrooms,
he saved the best class for last!  Sounds feasible, right???  They'll buy into it, especially if it involves magic and treats for sure!
 


I am literally chomping at the bit to do these Magical Leprechaun Rocks that I found on Gift of Curiosity's blog (click on link for more specific directions, it's soooo easy!).  You simply mix green tinted water (I used paint because I didn't have food coloring!) with a box of baking soda so that it is moldable but not too wet (start with a 1/4 of a cup of green water, but add until it is no longer dry and moldable like moon sand).  I just put a ball of it around a gold coin and flattened it, then added a little more as necessary so it looks like a green rock (with gold dust on the top of course!).  I made 21 decent sized "rocks" out of one box.  Let them sit overnight and they should be ready to go the next morning!

Grab a bottle of Lucky's Magical Solution at the grocery store (ahem....vinegar!), replace the label with "Lucky's Magical Solution" label that looks quite authentic if I do say myself, UPC code and all! He he!  Hang up the 12 shamrocks with a number and a word on it around your room to reveal a very special message from Lucky which is basically directions on what to do with their rocks and the solution he left them.  Watch the students bubble with excitement at they place their rock in the vinegar and it bubbles and fizzes to reveal a gold coin!!!!   I honestly cannot wait to see their faces....do you honestly think they will EVER forget this moment???  Magic rocks from Lucky that turn into gold coins!  Luckiest students EVER!

The below message is also included in my kit so that you can do the message around the room even if you don't do the magic rocks.  It is great for the vocab word LUCKY...ask your students what it means...they KNOW, but their explanations are always pretty funny!

 And, of course the hats!  Just a reminder to practice on non-student cups beforehand to find out what your oven's temp range is....there are many ways for the cups to turn out, as evidenced by the picture below.  Too hot makes them shrivel with a turned up brim and EXTRA tiny (still super cute though!), too cool makes the cups just turn into, well, miniature cups and JUST RIGHT temp and time will turn them into perfect little leprechaun hats.  But, the truth of the matter is, the kids never care what the hats look like, they are always perfect to them no matter which variation they turn into!

 Don't forget to deliver and read Lucky's note to them about shrinking their hats.  And some treats under their hats at their table/desk spot in the morning.  I always laminate their little souvenir poems and let them use them as book marks in their book boxes...but it depends what they want.  Now, teach them the words FRAGILE and DELICATE because that is exactly what these darling hats are!

Now, it's time to write friendly letters to Lucky....asking questions becomes a very easy task for students after they've experienced all of this magic from him on this day!

Click on the pic below for my organized shopping/copying and prepping list for these activities....You know MMMB is all about EASY SCHMEASY pudding pie!

and also grab this freebie for the science aspect of the project....students draw what cups looked like before and after Lucky's visit....you could also have your students creatively or higher orderly thinking of HOW Lucky could've possibly done this to their hats and share their responses!  This is REALLY funny because they take it oh so seriously and come up with the cutest ideas or hypotheses.  The product isn't this fuzzy either, I promise!
