St. Patrick's Day Fun

Today was converted from a Spring Break Day to a Snow Day Make-up Day. SO I decided to celebrate St. Patrick's Day all day since we will be on Spring Break the rest of this week.

A little leprechaun broke into our classroom during P.E. and did this...

Tissues, Glue, and Hand Sanitizer, OH MY! I threw in a few gold coins and shamrock confetti. The kiddos really liked that! "Ms. King, WHEN is the leprechaun coming back?" Hmmm....
Not sure if I will be making a mess like THIS next year! lol
We made WANTED posters from Erica Bohrer's First Grade Blog and hung them around the classroom in an attempt to catch the mischievous fella. Wish we would have had time to set a trap too. We also did the writing activity and leprechaun craft from The First Grade Parade

We also graphed lucky charm marshmallows and a few other odds and ends. Short week. My Monday is also my Friday. Spring Break is finally here!


  1. what a mess...but I bet the students LOVED it!

  2. Fun! I do this too -- but not to the extreme of glue on the tables!! ha! PS - LOVE the hardwood floors in your classroom!!

  3. Hahaha! I probably WON'T be doing all the glue next year! Rookie mistake! But yes, the kids loved it. The school I work in was built in 1916 and I just happened to be one of the lucky ones who got a classroom that still has the original wood floors :-)
