Video Cred: Leah O'Donnell (who rocks!)
So this year, after their special, the kids came in only to find the leprechaun left them a pot - not of gold - but with a letter in it. Turns out we just started our persuasive writing unit and the leprechaun wanted us to write him letters persuading him to give us his gold.
So we did!
The kids really did do a great job and they ended up each getting a plastic gold coin to take home. One little lady also followed through on her promise to make him a little house and brought her project to school the next day.
We also did this fun Pinterest craft and are working on a combination of these centers.
I usually use this event as a kick-start to leprechaun and Irish themed centers that we use the last two weeks of March. I have a TON (legitimately WAY too many) of resources for March here.
What do you do in March? Anything you would like to do more in your class? Although I have way more March activities than I need, it's one of my favorite things to create for!
