I'm back! (St. Patty's Day Freebie!)
Thankfully I have a great team and one shaky text to a coworker on Thursday night when I realized there was no way I could go into work when I could barely manage to hold a water bottle without spilling, ensured that she would make some copies and ensure my sub on Friday was prepared since I had only counted on being gone 1 day. This morning I woke up and realized that I felt 10 times better which was such a relief. I even got to wash my hair which was nice since my husband commented that I looked like Chewbacca after he stuck his finger in a light socket. I lost 4 lbs over the 3 days and still feel weak, but I know I'm over the worst of it! The rest of my family is a little bit sniffly and congested but nothing like what I had for which I'm thankful!
I have a few posts to catch up on and messages to return, so if you haven't heard a reply from me you know why I'm behind! I am also sharing my: How to Plan a Leprechaun Visit packet which I had hoped to have up on Wednesday, but might still be of use to those of you who haven't finalized your plans for next week. I always make a big deal out of St. Patrick's Day and my students love it - the detail with which they can recount the events of our Leprechaun visit is astounding. Here's the packet, which gives you some rhymes for a school-wide scavenger hunt as well as a poem, writing prompt paper and some ideas for creating the "magic" of the leprechauns! I hope you can manage to squeeze it into your plans - your students will surely enjoy it! Just click on the picture to download it for free in my TPT store!
Oh, and if you haven't checked it out yet, please stop by and give my St. Patrick's Day Lucky Leprechaun Math Unit a peek - I've got 8 math center/small group activities as well as journal prompts and a color by sum sheet! It's on sale until Monday with all of my other St. Patrick's Day goodies!
