Have you seen or done these puzzles with your students before? I just started creating them this year to practice different math concepts and make them depending on what we are working on. Right now, we are really hammering skip counting, so, after Lucky gets busy shrinking my students' hats, he will also be leaving this special message for them that they can read ONLY after they put the puzzle together by skip counting by 2s. Basically, Lucky the Leprechaun has planned the afternoon before St. Patrick's Day (well, the 16th, I know) AND the entire day of St. Patrick's Day-I must be a pretty lucky teacher! (Well, at least we'll let the kids think that!).
Let Lucky plan your whole day of fun and educational activities that your students will probably never forget. You can find the previous freebies here and the new freebie can be found by clicking the cover below! Although I do this activity with kinders, I truly believe that as even middle school aged children would get a huge kick out of this mischievous activity.
