Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The students patiently waited the arrival of the Leprechaun today! We made leprechaun traps and set them up in the room. He stopped by while we were at recess. He played his usual tricks of messing up our room. He also left little leprechaun hats, gold coins, and Cool Whip for our green jello. When we stirred the cool whip it turned GREEN! Also the toilet was green! This was the funniest part of the day to the kids!
The students made a Dr. Seuss character out of clay and decorated it. They also named their silly characters and wrote about them in their journals.
This week we enjoyed reading Fairy Tales. We discussed the characters, setting, problems, & solutions! We continued counting objects to 20 and writing numbers. We also began our unit on Maps & Globes.
