A leprechaun's pot of gold

What would you do with your three wishes, if you caught a leprechaun? Is there a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow?
I asked my students these questions today. We also talked about St. Patrick and Irish celebrations.
I wanted them to have some fun, so I printed out St. Patrick's Day photo booth props (a rainbow mask, a pot of gold, a green hat, a red beard etc.) that I've found at the Dating Divas and Masketeers.

I divided each class into small groups (5-7 students), so it was easier to take photos.

My little leprechauns wish you Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wiggle eyes are so cool!

Everything can be fun if you make it funny! 
During my last trip to Warsaw I bought a pack of wiggle eye rings. And I found them very useful in practicing everyday pharases with my younger studens. 
I decided to put into practice an idea of my friend, Jolanta Okuniewska.
Yesterday I asked a group of my students to take some photos of their hands wearing the wiggle eye rings.

Then they used to edit the photos. They added glasses, hair, moustaches etc. And they also added speach bubbles with everyday phrases. Here's the result:

We only had one camera and one computer, so some of my students were a little bit impatient waiting for their turn. I wish I had some tablets at school, so they could work in pairs. Anyway, we had a great time!
