One of my favorite things about the month of march is having my students make leprechaun traps. On March 1st I send home the ws below. This idea came to me from my mentor teacher from student teaching. It was so exciting to hear how the kids were working on their trap and spending time with parents, siblings, or friends to create it! The night before St. Patricks Day I have the students "set" their traps before they leave for the day. Then I "mess" up the classroom because leprechauns are naughty and like to misbehave. The Leprechaun leaves them a note in the classroom with a golden coin (chocolate candy purchased from Winco bulk section). It makes for a very exciting day!
