Lucky Me Shamrock

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and I wanted to share a little activity to honor this special day.  I am super excited about St. Patrick's Day this year!!!  Normally it falls during our spring break, so by the time we return it has already come and gone.  Our spring break is a week earlier this year, so YAY we get to really celebrate (minus the pinching of course)!

I created this shamrock fan booklet that I really hope my students will love.  I love how the cover page turned out.  My own little sweetie pie painted it for me with his watercolors.  He needed a little help from me to keep the center white (he's only 4).  I plan to have my students draw a self portrait in the center.   If you aren't a fan of watercolors, they could simply color the front with crayons or markers.   Click here to check it out at TPT.
On another note, I have a wonderful customer to thank.  He/she informed me via TPT that one of my paid items was being given away on another website.  This item is probably one of the ones I am most passionate about.  It is really one of my favorite classroom resources that I have created and my most popular.  I could hardly believe someone would give it away for free.  Low and behold I clicked the link and there it was offered as a freebie.  I think I may have quite breathing for a while... I was totally shocked.  But, on a good note, I contacted the owner of the site and they removed it promptly.  I was very gracious for this.
I really never wanted to have to include a long page at the end of my documents will all the different things that are prohibited.  But, I now get why bloggers must include this.  I do want to thank the wonderful customer who alerted me to this.  I tried to thank this person on TPT, but I accidentally hit delete and the original comment disappeared.  Yikes, my only way to reach this person disappeared before my eyes.  So, if that was you!!! A super huge thank you to you!!!!  It means the world to me that a follower would let me know that my work was being given away for free.
I would definitely like to pay this forward. As a huge thank you to all my totally terrific followers, I would like to give this Lucky Me Shamrock away for free for the first 20 people that leave a comment.  Please don't forget to leave your e-mail.
