Are You as Lucky as a Leprechaun?

Did you ever stop to think how lucky you are? You might, but your students may not. Here’s a fun freebie for St. Patrick’s Day or Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2nd.

Ask your students if they think they are lucky, and allow time for sharing. If anyone says that they are NOT lucky, it’s time to read aloud the Dr. Seuss classic, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? By the time you finish the book, everyone will be giggling, and it will be easy for them to discuss just how lucky we really are!

Next, give students the Lucky as a Leprechaun freebie above, and ask them to fill up the pot of gold by writing things that make them feel lucky. How about caring friends, a warm place to sleep at night, and the skills they’ve learned? Be sure to provide time for students to share what they wrote with team members or with classmates. This last step will remind your students that they are luckier than they knew!
