St. Patrick's Day and Linky Party!

Although I'm not in the classroom this year, I figured I would do a little TBT and go through some old St. Patrick's Day photos to show y'all what I usually do when I'm teaching. St. Patrick's Day is right around when we are doing the Building Things Unit in Grade One Science, so it ties in PERFECTLY. I have the kids make traps at home and then we do activities with it at school, including this one.
The students put the directions in order for how to make their trap. The students set their traps the day before, so make sure that parents know which day to send them in, and then that rascally leprechaun comes overnight. He left little footprints and made a disaster in the classroom. He must have escaped out the window!!

We have so much fun! What do you do in your classroom? For the full resource with my St. Patrick's Day activities, look here.

Just for fun, I also have some St. Patrick's Day brain breaks for sale as well.

I am hosting my FIRST EVER link party! Link up your blog posts, free and paid St. Patrick's Day resources. Can't wait to see!


  1. Thank you for hosting the linky! I love the idea of creating/setting leprechaun traps and sequencing the instructions. So fun! :)

  2. Totally not related to your post (which is very cute!), but I saw your post in the TPT forum and had to hop over here to "meet" you. I am also a "Ms." Dunn and until last year I taught first grade! Such a small world. ;-)

  3. As fellow Canadians, we all work so hard creating products for a niche market. I'm hoping to host a Canadian specific event to boost all our TPT sales and/or bring traffic to our blogs in the coming months, and so I've created this little survey to see what we're all interested in. Please fill out and share with your followers and friends too please!
