St. Patrick's Day Fun for Your Wee Little OnesI know St. Patrick's Day is still a while away, but I just love the holiday so much I couldn't help but get started on my special activities! Last year I told my little kinders that there was a "lucky little leprechaun' that came to visit our classroom when we weren't there. Sure enough, my little cuties bought it. Hook, line and sinker! I would put the gold coin chocolates in their cubbies if they were neat, leave gold and green glitter in mysterious places around the room, leave notes to the kids on our Smartboard, flip over chairs and do other mischievous things. It's like the Elf on the Shelf of March! I don't have any pictures to share from last year's crafts, but I always like to to a little snack with the kids. When I was in school, we would order Shamrock Shakes from McDonalds... delish! In an attempt to save some money, I decided to do a special leprechaun breakfast with the kids. I'm going to color milk green and give students Lucky Charms. Yum!
I was lucky enough to attend the New Jersey Kindergarten Conference in Atlantic City last week and I saw an awesome book I thought would go PERFECTLY with my little leprechaun game that I play with my students. The book is called Silly McGilly. Silly McGilly is a friendly Leprechaun who enjoys playing fun little tricks on children throughout the St. Patrick’s Day season. Read his story, then place his doll by a window each evening that you would like Silly to come and play a trick in your home or classroom.
I also made a St. Patrick's Day Unit which can be found in my TPT Store. Of course, I have a little FREEBIE for all of my followers! Hope you all enjoy and be sure to enter your email to make ensure that you never miss a FREEBIE!!
