My class had the best time this week with this project! The award ideas were great but it was so hard to pick! Do you do anything special to show that a "visitor" came to check out the traps?
On  March 16, 2013Primary Punch answered:
We present the projects in the morning during our ELA time and then when we go to lunch and recess I ask someone to come and knock all the traps down to make it look like someone had visited. Since I was with them in lunch, they know it's not me and they are always so mad when they come back to find out that he slipped away again. In years past I also have left chocolate gold coins at their desks and a "handwritten" note from the Leprechaun saying something about how the traps were nice but he was smarter. They love it!

Hello! Love this product, and just bought it. For some reason, it is just freezing during the download. Not sure if this is a TPT problem or what. If there is anyway you can e-mail the packet to me at jaymeharris@me.com that would be great!
