About our week...

This week we talked all about St. Patrick's Day. We used this as an opportunity to talk about the colors of the rainbow. We discussed primary and secondary colors and how we can mix colors to make new ones. We had fun making Leprechauns with red beards.

We read the book "There Was An Old Lady That Swallowed A Clover". We practiced sequencing the story and answering comprehension questions about what she ended up making at the end of the book. It's a cute story!

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day a day early in our room by making a treat and having a mini-party. We made Lucky Charm Crispy treats by following the recipe on the Smartboard. The kids LOVED the treats and we even had extra to take home.

On St. Patrick's Day we had a classroom visitor. The naughty leprechaun came into our room while we were on our clover hunt. He messed up the room, sprinkled glitter everywhere, left footprints on our table, left a message on our smartboard and left activities to complete in order to find his pot of gold. It was such a fun time!
