St. Patrick's Day Fun!

Hey Everyone!  I hope this finds you surviving your week!  I am not sure what is up with my class, but they have been a bit WaCkY this week!  I think spring is in the air (or something!)

We have been having a TON of St. Pat's Day fun this week!  Here are just some of the things we have been doing.

We started the week working on our GIANT LEPRECHAUNS!  These have little activities on each body part- they are great review for this time of the year.

Then the kids color all the parts and they turn out like this....

 So Fun!
Aren't they AMAZING??  :)  The kids go bonkers for these things... and the oohh's and ahhh's I get from other kids walking down the hall is pretty fun too!  You can get this guy (along with a TON of other fun activities in THIS pack)

We have also worked on some creative writing with the prompts
"How to Catch a Leprechaun"
"If I found a pot of gold.."
The kids had a BLAST writing  about these topics and their ideas were pretty hilarious :)
(the writing pages are also in the this PACK)

We made mosaic shamrocks (super easy and FUN) to decorate our hallway

The kids loved the "Spin a St. Patty Problem" :)

And we are going to end our week by creating TRAPS to HATS!!

The kids decorate a Styrofoam cup to use as a leprechaun "trap."  Then magically the trap is turned into a "hat!"  The leprechaun will leave a letter for the kids (with tons of mistakes) and we will spend time correcting those silly leprechaun letters!  I CAN'T WAIT to see the look on their faces when the traps are turned into hats (this is seriously one of my very.favorite.projects. EVER!!)

ALL of the projects mentioned above are in this snazzy pack:
And because I love my followers I wil do a buy- one-get-one for you, just email me!

Finally,I wanted to share this CUTENESS banner set that I have in my classroom window.  It is from Miss Kindergarten and she has banners from August- July and they are adorable!! (I have them all! :)  You can see them HERE
Aren't they super fun?!?!

This weekend I will post Around the School #3 (to see previous ones you can click on the Around the School tab above my blog banner)!!  It will be full of fab March ideas!  I also have some great Earth Day project ideas to share too!

AND... I feel a 600 follower giveaway coming soon!!  I'm cookin' up some fun ideas! :)

p.s... the first person to correctly count ALL the "fun" words anywhere in this post (not including the side bar) and leave it in a comment below (with your email) will be sent the Leprechaun Activity Pack for FREE!  Have FUN!! (yes, count that one too! :)

    1. Suzy you made me go back and count again!! I thought I had the right number and then I recounted (aparently skipping a couple!!). You are RIGHT including the Fun in the title! :) I'll email it to you later today! :)

  5. I am such a bad counter of these things! I am going to guess 8.

    You look like you had lots of St. Patty's day fun this week! I want to come visit your classroom! Love the hats! Can't wait to hear how they turn out!

  6. This pack looks so fun! I love St. Patty's Day. That math spin game is probably a big hit. My kids would love that! I think I missed the sale since it's 8:30 pst. $2! What a deal!
