Lucky First-Graders Get Leprechaun Visit

Lucky First-Graders Get Leprechaun Visit Photo

First-graders in Katianne Howe’s class at Deauville Gardens West celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with hands-on art, math, reading and science activities.

The first-graders designed and created their own leprechaun traps. They displayed them the night before St. Patrick's Day, and when they came into school, they discovered small footprints and gold glitter around their traps. They received two letters from two leprechauns who visited the classroom and left gifts and gold for the students. 

Students read two St. Patrick’s Day poems and were visited by a mystery reader who read a St. Patrick’s Day story. They also made their own green slime. 

At the conclusion of the celebration, the students each received a bag of Lucky Charms cereal from a leprechaun and graphed the marshmallows in their cereal.
