I found this great book to read with your little ones on St. Patrick's Day called Fiona's Luck, by Teresa Bateman.
The greedy leprechaun king has locked away all the luck in Ireland and the whole country has fallen into despair. Through clever charades, Fiona outwits the leprechaun king and restores luck to the land.
Connection to Book:
In the story the king locks up all the luck in a chest in the leprechaun’s cavern. Fiona can get a wish granted if she shows she has no luck, but it would be for exactly the value of luck she has, which is nothing. She says that she wants a hole, which is nothing, in the top of the chest. This allows all the luck free in Ireland.
The students will create a chest of luck. Inside the chest the students will:
-- write what they are lucky for
-- symbols of luck and what they mean which they will learn about from a power point included
--what the Irish were grateful for
This is a cute activity to do for St. Patrick's Day.
Please leave feedback and let me know how it went.
