Let's Make A Leprechaun....Or Two! (freebie, too!)

Pin Addict

I love St Patrick's Day...and all things Irish! Creating this pack was just too much fun for me!
Of course, I have been a bit busier (and sicker) than I thought I would be and it has taken WAY longer than I thought it would to finish it.  (Not to mention the fact that I kept adding stuff to it, making the initial size something like 180MB...until I found a way to reduce the file size with my MAC so that it is WAY more manageable).  ANYWAYS... This pack has, as usual, some adorable craftivities- a glyph and also a personalized friend which both have writing extensions...but the pack also has a bit of math...and a lot of writing and making connections with character and plot.
I also included a leprechaun legend that can be used as a "Think Ahead" (predicting activity)
...lots of activities to go along with my two fav St Patrick's Day books by Tomie DePaola...
gotta love Jamie O'Rourke!  
I  included Common Core standards covered with the pack, too.
If you get a chance, check it out HERE.
When you go to TPT, there is a freebie download if you click "Download Preview"

Seriously, you will love this pack!

    How in the world did you reduce your file size like that on your Mac?! I am always looking for a good way to do that!! :)

  31. I have the latest OS...but in Pages, under file...there is a "reduce file size" is AWESOME! I was afraid to use it b/c it said that it would reduce the size of my photos and stuff...but I couldn't tell the difference at all!
    Hope that helps!

  32. Wow, it totally looks awesome! Hey, what time is the Bama Blogger meet up? I noticed and re-posted the announcement, but I didn't see a time.
