There was a great deal of excitement this week over St. Patrick’s Day, and we had our suspicions in 2B that Louie the Leprechaun would pay a visit to our classroom before we got there on Thursday morning. We wrote letters to Louie, but we wrote them with the opposite of our desires because we know that leprechauns never do what you ask them to. The students cleverly begged Louie “not to give us all presents,” to make the classroom like a “tornado” had been there, and to please destroy all of our possessions. Sadly, Louie still caused some damaged and seemed to enjoy scattering classroom items, leaving a trail of shamrocks, and turning everything upside down. He even left a puzzle for us to solve with chocolates and balloons! Let’s hope that next year Louie isn’t quite so sneaky at Millgrove School!
