It’s March! Hurray!!!! One of my favorite holidays is just around the corner. I thought I’d share some of the fun things we’ve done in the past to celebrate.
We always read Jamie O’Rourke and the Big Potato. I always try to read out loud with my best Irish accent (which I’m sure is ridiculous…😂). Last year my class made these adorable potato people. My class also completed these leprechaun directed drawings from First Grade Blue Skies. They turned out SO adorable!!!
We also worked on writing questions. First we brainstormed some question words whole class and made a poster. Then during our stations we worked on writing down the questions to ask a leprechaun. I had this large leprechaun cut-out that I purchased from Dollar Tree. I taped it to the door and had students ask the leprechaun a question. Oh my goodness–this was SUCH a cute activity and I absolutely loved the questions that my students wrote in their leprechaun letters.
I uploaded this fun activity as a FREE item to my TpT store! Just click here to download.
We also had a little visitor at our house! My kiddos were SO EXCITED!!! He left little green footprints and shamrocks everywhere! Here is a photo:
The visiting leprechaun also left green milk in the fridge! Ha!
I’m looking forward to this silly little leprechaun visiting again (and I’m looking forward to Shamrock Shakes)! We also have a little tradition of making green dinner that night. I usually just tint some pasta and alfredo sauce and serve with broccoli–yum! What do you have planned for St. Patrick’s day? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below!
