We have been working so hard on St. Patrick's Day this week. My kiddos enjoyed "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover" and "The Luckiest St. Patrick's Day Ever". We've also used this as an opportunity to talk about leprechauns and add some cute stuff in as well.
I really stumped them we when talked about luck and lucky objects. However, this encouraged them to go home and search for 4 leaf clovers. Oh my goodness, I had one little girl somehow bring in enough 4 leaf clovers for everyone. And another brought in 3 zippy bags of just plain clovers. My kiddos are so precious. I hope that activity at least gave them some much needed time with their family.
But, oh are they in for a treat when they come in tomorrow morning. :) We've had a leprechaun visit us this week. Man, is he sneaky (heehee). Chairs have been turned upside down, things in cubbies misplaced, and rugs turned over. But I don't quite have my first graders convinced that there really is a leprechaun running around our school (it's hard for me to keep my composure and be "surprised", I have as much fun with this as they do). So this is what my little darlings are going to see:
I can't wait to see them in the morning. Their darling faces when they see this will make all the work worth it. They still need to believe in magic!
We also did the things in my TPT unit -
Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!!
