Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays at school. This year a leprechaun came and visited our classroom.
Here is what happened... Monday before school got out we set leprechaun traps in hope of catching one. Well when the kids got to school this morning, this is what they found:
He had run all over their desks in green paint. Then they saw this written on the board...
Kinda silly I know, but he had left a green drink there for me to drink. I always take a vote at this point in the morning. We vote to see if I should drink it and risk the chance of dying. This morning, only 3 of my 27 kids thought that I shouldn't drink the drink. Clearly my health is not of their concern.
So I drink it and about 15 minutes later my foot started to feel really weird so I took off my shoe and sock and.... wah-la!
The potion turned my foot green!! Now this is the point where the students actually do begin to get concerned. So this year they came up with the idea to write our leprechaun letters. These were too priceless to not post. Sorry there are a lot of them. I will translate after each in case you can't understand first grade penmanship.
These crack me up because their personalities show through so much. I am going to 'label' the personality traits these kids will have as they get older. This is all for fun... just so you know, this isn't how I really think of these kids so please no one think I am a horrible person who labels children. Here we go... enjoy!
Student #1: Normal Student
*We are really sorry. Please turn Mrs. Lefler's foot back to normal.*
Student #2: The Brown-noser
*I think you can read this one.*
Student #3: The Typical Jock
*You are so stupid. I am going to play football against you. You are going to die.*
Student #4: Just a Little "OFF"
*Please don't turn us into witches.*
Student #5: The Bully
*We are sorry. Do not turn Mrs. Lefler green or you will get it!*
Student #6: The Pass the Blame Student
*I am sorry I made you mad. It was not my fault. It was my teacher's idea to do it.*
(This one was my personal favorite)
Student #7: Little White Lie
*We are sorry. We wanted to catch a different leprechaun.*
Student #8: The Paranoid Student
*Please forgive us for making those traps. Please don't send us to jail.*
Which one was your favorite? I love these!!!
