It's Friday Eve!  Holla!  :)

I'm popping in tonight with a little freebie for St. Patrick's Day.  It's actually an oldie {but a goodie!} that I updated with new fonts and clip art.  It's a treasure hunt!

I usually tell my kiddos that a leprechaun is loose at school, and has left behind these clues to find his gold.  The clues take the kiddos around the classroom, and eventually lead to a pot of goodies!  The kids LOVE it!!

If you want to have a little St. Pat's fun with your kiddos, head on over to my TpT shop and grab your free copy!!  I hope your kiddos enjoy it!!
Today I'd like to share my completed March bulletin board with you!  I shared "part one" on my Instagram a few days ago:
I received a few questions about how I made the rainbow, so here's a quick tutorial!  All you'll need is some Scotch masking tape and rainbow streamers.

First, put a long strip of masking tape down on your work space, sticky side up.  To hold it in place, just fold the stick part down on both ends and secure it to the table:
You'll work with one streamer color at a time.  Take the streamer and stick it to the masking tape starting at one end.  Then start scrunching and sticking, scrunching and sticking-- that's the best way I can describe it!  Here's a little visual:
When you're done covering the whole strip of tape, simply cut the folded ends off... you'll be left with a flexible yet sturdy streamer.  Now it's easy to maneuver and staple it into a rainbow shape on your bulletin board!
Here's a view of the whole, completed bulletin board:
We make these little shamrocks every year.  I finally decided to make them into a little writing craftivity with a fancy font {as opposed to my bubble letters above} to share with you!  It's included in the latest edition of Sprint Prints!
There are four different prompts to choose from... Lucky Me, I Am Lucky, I Feel Lucky, and Lucky Charm.  You can choose one for your class, or an assortment!  Also included in Sprint Prints! March are various math and literacy printables:

These themed printables are great to grab in a pinch! Fast finishers, morning work, time-fillers... however you use them, your kiddos are sure to love these activities! Included are 15 fun printables to keep your students engaged during the month of March.
