|Leprechaun shakes and Lucky trail mix|
The Leprechaun Shake was my idea. It was a spin off of what I call "baby shower punch." You know, the kind of punch they serve at baby showers: Ginger ale, pineapple juice and sherbet ice cream? I mixed one large container of pineapple juice and one two-liter of ginger all in a gallon jug. I bought a small container of lime sherbet and scooped about a 1/2 cup of ice cream into the bottom of a cup and filled up with the pineapple juice/ginger ale mix. Then we topped it with whipped cream. Yummo! The kids loved it and it was cheap and easy. You know me, cheap and easy. Wait a minute, that came out wrong.

The kids love this activity and look forward to our Writer's Celebrations every month or so. I try to change up what we do for each celebration, but this seems to be their favorite. They love reading their friends' writing and getting compliments.
After they were done reading others' writing, they went back to their own desk and got to read the compliments. They oh'd and ah'd over their own work and compliments and then we had our snack.
