Lucky You! Blog Hop

Come join us on the Lucky You! Blog Hop. Happy Friday the 13th! Are you someone that thinks the number 13 is lucky or unlucky? Did you know that paraskevidekatriaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th? Well, today let's view 13 as lucky!

13 Good Luck Symbols

-a four-leaf clover (Did you ever find one?)
-a lucky horseshoe
-a rabbit's foot
-a penny (See a penny, pick it up and all day long you will have good luck!)
-a wishbone
-a rainbow
-a ladybug
-a "shooting" star
-lucky bamboo
-the number 7
-three keys (Unlocks the door to health, wealth, and love.)
-fuzzy dice 

Which of these symbols do you consider to be lucky?

While on the blog hop you will find some golden freebies! Click here and grab your freebie. It will remain free for a short time!

This activity is a fun way to review language skills like similes, multiple meaning words, dialogue with quotes, exaggeration, comparisons, and imagery with short writing tasks. A little bit of prep work in creating the cubes is required, but then let the creative juices flow!! Students can complete the tasks in small groups, as independent work at a writing center, or as a whole class activity where students share their ideas!

Thanks for stopping by Pam's Place. Don't forget to grab your golden freebie: Shamrock 'n' Roll. It will remain free for a short time! Now hop on over to Teacher Ms. H: Third is the Word by clicking the button below and see what golden freebie you can grab there!
