A leprechaun is loose and is causing all sorts of mischief in the classroom. Many people don't believe it's actually a leprechaun who making all the problems, but one student is determined to catch him. Students can use their mathematical and scientific skills to build their own leprechaun trap in pairs or groups.

This is one of my favorite St. Patrick Day books to read to my Kindergarten class. It is about a leprechaun loose in the classroom. The leprechaun licks the green icing fromt the cupcakes, swims in the classroom fish tank, and lets the class hampster out of its cage, etc. There is only one classmate that can see and hear the leprechaun, and the other students think this classmate is the one causing all the mess. Cute story!

This is a great book to read to students in younger grades on St. Patrick's Day. (You could even imitate the book by messing up the classroom and pretending the leprechaun came!)

Second time reading this. Again, it is a perfect fit for the leprechaun visits to the grade 1 and 2/3 classrooms.
