The Butterflies were a little shocked to discover that leprechauns had come into our classroom in the wee hours of the morning of Saint Patrick's Day. Evidence of their mischief included toys in the wrong places, babies hung on the clothesline, books turned upside down, and the calendar in complete disarray. We weren't sure exactly what had happened until we found traces of gold dust all over the room. There was a lot of speculation about how the leprechauns, who are known to be very tiny, were able to reach the high shelves and clothes line. Some thought they climbed, some thought they flew, some thought they jumped and some thought they made a rope ladder.
