I love watching how excited the kids get about each of the holidays. St. Patrick’s Day is no different. The kids are excited to break out their green, search for gold, and set some Leprechaun traps!
One of the greatest ways to encourage kids to enjoy learning is by making the lessons fun and relevant.
So at this time of year I want to embrace some Leprechaun magic and infuse my lessons with that special luck that comes with a 4 leaf clover.
