As I’m sure you know :), leprechauns do not dare to make a mess in your classroom if your teacher is actually from Ireland. And that’s because she probably knows someone in that leprechaun’s family, and would relay back stories of their naughty behavior. They really don’t want that.
So instead, to celebrate the day, Room 8 made fairy houses. There was a lot of collaboration, brainstorming, sharing, and persuading. When they were done, we placed them in the garden. Fortunately we got them in there just before it rained. We’re sure the fairies really appreciated having somewhere to shelter from the rain that weekend.
