This story lead us to a presentation of a celebratory "Lucky Pennies" counting activity. This consisted of felt shamrocks, each with a number 1-10, and 55 pennies. I made these out of regular craft felt (the stiff kind) and the pre-cut numbers had sticky-backs - super simple to make! The beautiful Lilly-of-the-Valley tin which holds the pennies came from a fancy soap. I just love its size and shape! Also,the pennies make such a lovely sound when the kids place them in the tin...aah, the joys of a Montessori teacher...!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
