Naughty Leprechaun Story and Giveaway!


Yay!! My Naughty Leprechaun Story came in the mail and I am SUPER excited about it!! My students had a blast with the Elf On The Shelf and I know they will just get a kick out of this!!!


The Naughty Leprechaun comes with a special coin. The coin allows students to choose who will visit each night--Liam or Leyland.  One leprechaun leaves a small treasure as a reward for doing your best. The other leprechaun creates mischief and pranks! 
If the students are good throughout the day then they get to choose which leprechaun will come to visit (I have a feeling mine will love the mischief and pranks!) But, if they don't work hard and do their best, then they don't get to choose...it is just up to luck!


The book explains the story behind the two brothers and at the end explains how on the last night before St. Patrick's Day both brothers will visit the class! They will even leave behind a small (hidden) prize.

 Overall, the basis of the story is to get children to do their very best! I am excited to try this out with my kids for the first time this year. I am hoping it gets them motivated just like our class Elf did!! :)

You can read more about the Naughty Leprechaun Story HERE.
