Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  
Leprechauns, shamrocks, pots of gold and green....have all become symbols of an Irish holiday that really became more popular in the United States.  Here's a quick, interesting summary video from the History Channel.

Real or myth, this is a fun little holiday to celebrate with your students.  Here are two projects we'll be doing tomorrow and for the rest of this week.
Students will work on this project W, Th & F during our small reading groups.

This is Clooney O'Shea and he's friends with my son and daughter's Christmas Elves.  Their elves (Koof and Gok) have so much fun at our house during the month of December, they told Clooney to come visit us for the month of March, starting on St. Patrick's Day of course.  Last year we were on vacation in Mexico and Clooney went south of the border to find us.  

And this little guy is going to invade my classroom for the rest of the month, kind of like a certain pigeon I know...

However you celebrate the 17th of March, I wish you a wonderful day and leave you with a very famous Irish saying (that my dad said to us at our wedding):

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
