Are You as Lucky as a Leprechaun?

Did you ever stop to think how lucky you are? You might, but your students may not. Here's a fun freebie for St. Patrick's Day or Dr. Seuss's birthday, March 2nd.

Ask your students if they think they are lucky, and allow time for sharing. If anyone says that they are NOT lucky, it's time to read aloud one of Dr. Seuss's classics, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? By the end of the book, everyone will be giggling, and it will be easy for them to discuss just how lucky we really are!

Next, give students the Lucky as a Leprechaun activity page and ask them to fill up the pot of gold by writing things that make them feel lucky. How about caring friends, a warm place to sleep at night, and the skills they’ve learned? Be sure to provide time for students to share what they wrote with team members or with classmates.

Check out the March Activities Pack for Upper Elementary!
This Lucky as a Leprechaun freebie is a sample from my March Activities Pack for upper elementary students. This resource includes over two dozen pages of lessons, activities and ready-to-use printables for special days in March, including Read Across America Day, St. Patrick's Day, Pi Day, and Spring! You can preview the packet from the March Activities product page on TpT.

I hope you and your students enjoy these resources for March. Never forget how lucky you are!
