St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day all! We celebrated yesterday and now I am recovering from the craziness by lounging in my pjs! On Thursday, we designed leprechaun ladders and leprechaun traps (from our March Lucky Literacy Pack) and then, as the door closed and the last of the kiddos left, the leprechaun I got to work. Our room was trashed - glitter sprinkled everywhere, streamers, gold coins, shenanigans had definitely ensued.

Such a tricky leprechaun!

When the students first came into the classroom their faces lit up! It was the cutest thing! They were so excited to see that the leprechaun had left green foot prints over their letters they wrote for the leprechaun (which, as a side note we all signed our letters with more of an Irish flare, we added a O' before our last names - so mine was Katie O'Walker, they loved it!)

Earlier in the week we made March Monsters, it is a fun art inspired by the monsters over at KPM Doodles. I think they turned out so stinkin' cute!

Aren't the guitars the cutest?!

What is your favorite thing to do for St. Patrick's Day?



  1. Love the name change! The kids would have loved that too. My last name actually does start with "o" but it was dropped years ago :)
    Take care.
