Happy St. Patty's Day!!!!

As one of my favorite days of the year comes to an end I thought I would share some of our days fun festivities with you all!   To begin, I wanted to show you some of my students creative and inventive leprechaun traps.  This project was a part of the Leprechaun Inference Unit.  The students had a little over a week to work on this family project.  The task was to build a creative trap that they would be able to explain and present to the class.

On Friday March 14th, as the bell was about to ring, I let all the students set their traps around the classroom.

This morning the students walked into a room filled with leprehchaun mischief.  Chairs were all in a pile, green streamers and silly string were all over the place, little footprints were found all over the classroom!  And finally this note was left along with all the students’ leprechaun traps all left in one heaping pile.

The students then went on a scavenger hunt around the school, following the leprechauns clues, and leading us to his pot of goodies. 

All of these activities can be found in the LeprechaunInference Unit!


  1. I am in awe with this blog post! I would love to be a student in your class! I think you both deserve an award. I nominated you both for the Liebster Award. Head over to my blog to read all about it! http://agracefilledclassroom.blogspot.com/2014/03/liebster-award-part-2.html

  2. Great post! That sounds like one of the funnest St, Patrick's Day school celebrations I've ever seen. I bet your students had a blast! Just reading about it and seeing all the pictures made me wish I could have joined in. Very creative and engaging. This has to go on my list of favorite ideas for the classroom.
