A Pot of Money, Schlopp, and a Freebie!

St. Patty’s Day is kinda one of those holidays where I don’t have too much creativity. Probably because I do not really get it. But that’s ok, cause I’ve got Pinterest now! haha
One idea I came across on the net {not sure where now} is filling up little kettles with coins and having the kiddos count it and then each other’s pots of “gold”. I was bummed though because I figured I couldn’t find kettles in March, but lo and behold Party City!

They always come to the rescue! And cheap too. All for around $6 for 24 little kettles! Free money manipulatives at school, and a free recording sheet! Erin Go Bragh!
So here’s the freebie in Google Docs
And I’ve finished up a teenie activity pack for this week, too! It’s on TpT now! I made a Lucky Charms mini data book, included the above coin activity with a little more, All Things Green bubble mapping activity, and MY FAV…a Blarney Stone persuasive writing activity where students tell what they would do with the Gift of Gab. Precious!
And I wanted to share some of the suesstastic things we did this past week! And my favorite things were all free for me! Thanks to making my own stuff, Abby at the Inspired Apple, and my teamie’s Dr. Seuss minibook {told you I’m obsessed with these things!}
We made Seussy creatures on Switcharoo Zoo website after reading I Wish that I Had Duck Feet

Made Cat in the Hat Snazzy Snacks and tried some Schlopp with a cherry on top!
And took everyone’s picture with my new Cat in the Hat camera app! These are my littles since I know their mom won’t mind if they're on the blog!

And used our Rhyming Dictionary to make up some hilarious rhymes for a “things you can think” activity: one of the best: Dr Phil on a treadmill in an oil spill!
