Be on the Lookout for Leprechauns!!

I've been reading leprechaun stories this week and we've been doing some writing revolved around these little guys!

We've made "WANTED" signs and hung them around our school letting others know they should be on the lookout for these guys.  They can be quite sneaky!!

Look at that expression!

Today, the kids brainstormed how they thought I made Shamrock Shakes and we did some "How To" writing.  Of course, I always try to convince them I use REAL shamrocks and when I tell them they're all going to try the shakes they go, "EwwWwww."  

They're in for a treat on Friday when I whip these DELICIOUS shakes up!!  

I have "How To" writing on my TpT Store if you're interested in checking it out.

The best part of writing today was hearing a boy say how much he LOVED writing in my class. It put a HUGE grin on my face.

Evan wanted to share a picture of the tiniest pencil in the classroom and of course it belongs to him.  I'm going to believe it's this short because of all the writing we do!

And...last but not least I wanted to share one more picture of our roller coaster writing.  I added the rest to our bulletin board.  The facial expressions crack me up each time I look at them.
