Leprechauns on the Loose! St. Patrick's Day in the Classroom

Come this time tomorrow, Christy is either going to LOVE or HATE job sharing...
Tammy will love it...As she posted on Instagram. :) 

You can do the same for your little leprechauns! We didn't do anything fancy or pricey. We found stuff at the 99 Cent Store. 
It's also easy enough to just use what you have, like green and white unifix cubes, green pens, green torn up paper, basically anything you have that's green. 

Our "Lucky Juice" is simply made of Sierra Mist with the label peeled off, marked up with a Sharpie, and a few drops of green food coloring added. You could also just do water or any other clear beverage.
If we've brought you to the Dark Green Side, the least we could do is give you a freebie. Our kids will have exactly 5 minutes to clean up after those pesky little leprechauns. If they choose to accept their mission, which they will have no other choice but to accept, they will be rewarded with "Lucky Juice" and a writing experience they'll never forget. It's all in how we "sell" it. They'll be even more lucky to be able to write all about it...those lucky dogs! 

We were LUCKY enough to be selected as the Feature Teacher for the TpT newsletter this week. It must be the Luck of the Irish-or the Luck of the Polish and English-sprinkled with a touch of Romanian and Russian!

  1. What's the "Lucky Juice"? Looks like Sprite or 7-Up but also looks like there are shamrocks inside??

    1. Luanne-it's just Sierra Mist with the label peeled. We used a Sharpie on the outside and stuck stickers on the bottle. Easy Peasy!

  2. Looks like a fun day! I am having a low-key St. Patrick's day this year because we had so many days off last week for snow that I need to catch up on everything and wasn't at school to get my St. Patrick's day stuff together!
