The Naughty Leprechaun

Oh friends, I am so, SO excited I get to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with my class this year! For the last several years we have always been on spring break when St. Patrick's rolls around.  In fact, the last time I blogged about St. Patty's day was 2012! You can read that post HERE, but I've come a long way since then! 

This year, St. Patrick's Day is the day before spring break! The perfect time to have lots of fun! We'll be leading up to the big day with a special story - The Naughty Leprechaun Story

We'll read the tale of the two brothers and learn all about consequences, making good choices, and having morals. The book focuses on creating your own luck through hard work and determination and not relying on random chance. It's full of beautiful, funny illustrations and I know my students will love it. Then for three nights, our classroom will get a special little visitor. 

Will it be Liam the good or Leyland the naughty? My  class will get to decide if they have had good behavior. Then, on the fourth day - we'll have our  celebration! And when our celebration is over - SPRING BREAK! 

The Naughty Leprechaun story came with a gorgeous gold coin with one brother on each side. We'll leave it out each night showing our choice of visitor. Here are some ideas for each brother: 

I am hoping that on the last night, my students choose a visit from Liam. If they don't, I'll certainly try to persuade them that way. He'll be leaving them everything they need for a classroom celebration - craft stupplies to make leprechaun hats to wear and rainbow stained glass art for our windows, a leprechaun movie, and a special breakfast snack of lucky charms and green milk! 

I'd love to hear how you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the classroom!

  1. Really wonderful piece of article which just simply portrays us about how you are treating the present generation students as the present generation students are much aware and updated about all things. Because of this, we could not even cheat them or console them by providing any answers. This has been experienced by myself in my research writing service work while i have been supposed to meet such a boy who had locked myself by asking a question. So, in the present world, we all are fearing on seeing the present generation children.
