The Traps Are Set!

I am laughing right now as I type this post because my students are SOOOO into the Leprechaun that has been visiting our classroom.  I wish I had a video of the student who found the first Leprechaun mess in the class bathroom a few days ago!  I tried so hard to keep a straight face while looking surprised at the same time!  Then students kept smelling the foot prints that were left on a few desks!  Then one told me the Leprechaun has stinky feet!  (Okay, I have teary eyes from laughing so hard right now!)  Okay, I'm better! They also go hunting for Leprechaun clues outside during recess! 
The students brought in their traps today and they are all set and ready on their desks.  They turned out Super Cute!!  See for yourself!

Here is our St. Patrick Week so far:

We did some data collecting with Lucky Charms thanks to Made for First Grade!  Stop by their blog for this freebie!

We did a very fun experiment with pennies, salt, and vinegar today!  The Leprechaun sneaks in and takes the shiny pennies then leaves a note for each student!  I am leaving notes for them to find when they come to school tomorrow!  "Luring Leprechauns" is a freebie from my friend and First Grade co-worker!  CLICK HERE to download and try it with your class!

The students had fun this week with Math Centers from my Lucky Clover Math Center Games

 I hope you all are having as much St. Patrick's fun as we are!!
