This is how I found Gloria when I arrived at school this morning.
I was shocked. She was laughing. I was not amused.
The children couldn’t believe their eyes when they walked into the classroom. Actually, they were excited after they overcame their initial shock. Then they discovered all the gold coins, the message Lucky wrote on the whiteboard, and even green water in the toilet.
We went on a treasure hunt to find the 26 gold coins Gloria and Lucky hid all over the school. The coins had alphabet numbers on top, and when children found them, they had to place them on a magnetic tray, matching the alphabet letters.
I went to my Read-Aloud library group after school, and they were all dressed for St. Patrick’s Day, too. As you can see, we’re reading “Wishtree”, by Katherine Applegate.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day !
A great way to spend St Patrick’s Day, Jennie. Happy Day.
It was, John. 🍀
Oh, how funny, and engaging!!
It was!! Thank you, Ritu. 🍀
Jennie, this is awesome! I giggled so much! Lucky and naughty Gloria had fun ~and so did the kids! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! ☘️ 💚 ☘️
Yes, they did! Thanks so much, KL. I’m glad you enjoyed this.
those leprechauns are such mischief makers and I love that book!
So much fun. I love it.
It was fun!!
Haha! Lucky the Leprechaun gets around. That was the little fellow’s name that used to visit my class. A former 2nd grader (now young adult) reminded me today how I had set out clues at different places to check someplace else in the room. At each step, Lucky left a letter with the next clue. By the end, every kid in the class was excited. The last clue led them to a place (an empty desk) where he left them some green cookies.
I love this! And, you know it was terrific when your former student remembers, many years later. Lucky definitely gets around.🍀
Such a fun thing to do. Love it!
Thanks, Sandra. It was really fun!
Such a treat for the kids to discover that when they arrived. Well done to Gloria! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
It was! 🙂 Best to you, Pete.
Funny, but they left a mess for you to clean up.
Yes, they did! 😀
Wow. Is learning ever fun in your classroom. What a riot, Jennie. Green toilets too. Ha ha. And I loved the Wishing Tree. I have that book based on your recommendation. Thank you. And thanks for the delightful post. 😀
Thanks so much, Diana! I’m glad you enjoyed the antics, the wishtree photos, and also the book. Sounds like a hat trick!
Mischievous leprechauns can never be trusted! But they aren’t usually mean. Gloria certainly has a sense of humour! As do you my friend…
She does, Pam (and so do I.) And, thanks so much.
love it. this is what happens when Gloria and Lucky have a bit too much Irish Whiskey!
You bet! Gloria still won’t tell me all they did. 😀
maybe you will find random things out of place over the next few days… 🙂
Oh how delightful! What a great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
It was such fun!
What a treat for the children, Jennie.
It was, Dan!
oh how much fun! Another reason to love Gloria!
Oh my word, Jennie, what an imagination you have. What fun🎉
Haha!! Thank you, Robbie. It was so much fun.

Thank you, Michael!
What a joy! Lol Sorry, i am once again late, but would not have missed this wonderful piece of “captured Gloria”. 😉 You are having very imaginative pupils, Jennie! I am sure it origins from the teacher itself. 🙂 xx Michael
No worries, Michael. And thank you!
Thank you as well, Jennie! Will try to remind a faster revisit. xx Michael
No worries, Michael. I am always behind!!
