To make our leprechaun craftivity, I cut only these pieces below and the kids lined up to pick up their parts and assembled them together with me. To add a little charm, we brainstormed of names for each other as if we were leprechauns. The kids thought it was hilarious and had such a great time!

We also added in some counting coins review to our rainbow and St. Patrick’s Day theme by creating Ways to Make $1 Rainbows! I simply cut and sorted out the clouds and colored strips beforehand. Our mini-lesson consisted of reviewing ways to make $1. Then with a sheet of various coins, the kids completed their rainbow either with me in small groups, with a partner, or independently depending on their readiness.
Oh and there was also Open House thrown in the mix before our Spring Break! Since our Open House is more of a Student Showcase Night, I decided to go along with a movie theme. So I rolled out the red carpet (well more like red butcher paper) for the kids and their families to walk on as they entered the classroom. At the end of the “red carpet” was a little photo-op waiting for them. When they completed the scavenger hunt that I had left for them, they all received a little popcorn packet for POPPING in! 🙂

And because I love gift tags and love giving little gifts to brighten up my students’ and teacher besties’ days so much, I had to add these to the mix! Here’s my confession: my son’s kindergarten teacher is really is amazing! So how could I resist wishing her the HAPPIEST birthday with this little gift?! As for my students, I had leftover chocolate coins from Lunar New Year and had to make good use of them. Ha! I have been randomly giving out a couple whenever I catch GOLDEN behavior in our classroom!
