St. Patrick's Day Freebie & Giveaway!

Oh my word! I have had a whirlwind past 5 days - including a visit to The Ron Clark Academy, attending the EdExpo 2015 AND numerous flight difficulties - I'll be posting about ALL of that in the next few days (we might be getting snow tonight - I'm super excited about the possibility of actually getting caught up if I get a Snow Day!)

Tonight though, I have a WONDERFUL new book to share with you all. AND, you get a chance to win your own copy!! Some of you know that I celebrate St. Patrick's Day in a BIG way in my classroom. We always make leprechaun traps, have a leprechaun visit, and do a ton of St. Patrick's Day activities. In fact, if you look over to your right on the sidebar you'll even see a list of some of my favorite St. Patrick's Day books from Amazon. You can also grab my FREE "How To Plan A Leprechaun Visit" over at TPT! It has a bunch of ideas for your leprechaun visit, including writing prompts and a homework letter.

So, knowing how enthused I am about all things St. Patrick's Day, imagine my delight when I was offered a chance to review a new book "Silly McGilly" written by three New Jersey sisters- Eileen Cowley, Michelle Dougherty and Victoria Coffey

It comes with an adorable soft, plush leprechaun doll. 

The story tells about how leprechauns - who make shoes for fairies - take a rest in March and travel the world.
Each one goes and performs different tricks. 

McGilly plays small tricks that make children smile. By placing the plush doll in the window, you let McGilly know that you want him to visit.

The thing that I LOVE is that the book mentions tricks that could be played at home or in a classroom! Also, YOU hold the power to decide what sorts of fun Silly will have in your home or classroom, and how often Silly will visit; every day in March, once a week, or just the day before St. Patrick’s Day!

The text is both simple and rhyming, and the story flows naturally. The illustrations are colorful and appealing to children.

The back of the book has suggestions for home and school tricks, with a website for even more ideas.

Good fortune to all of you!
