Dear Reader,

As you read this, I am on jury duty in San Diego. To keep me amused in the waiting room, I’ll have with me my iPod Touch, my laptop, and a hard cover book. Ha ha!!! No one ever accused me of traveling light!

For those interested in what I’m reading and listening to at the moment, you’ll find the list here:

For a wee bit of green fun in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a roundup of creative craft projects. Most are easily made with materials you already have at home or in the classroom, and many are simple enough for the tiniest of leprechauns.

For preschool and kindergarten kids, First School provides printable crafts (and lesson plans) for St. Patrick’s Day and Irish American Heritage Month. In addition to the craft instructions, the activities include reference links to articles about shamrocks, the history of St. Patrick’s Day, and other related topics. “Shamrock: (three leaves) is the national emblem of Ireland. Lucky Four-Leaf Clover: when a rare four leaflet occurs in a clover it is said to be lucky and the leaves represent hope, faith, love and the fourth one, luck.”
