|Leprechauns, pots of gold and making some wishes too....|
|The kids told what they'd do on St. Patrick's Day if|
we caught a Leprechaun....
|Hopefully we WILL catch some with our cool Leprechaun TRAPS!|
|Then we wrote what 3 wishes we would make.....they are pretty cute....|
|What would YOU wish for?|
|There were time machines, Disney Cruises, and piles of money of course....|
|And lots of kids would buy a new house for their parents...that's very sweet!|
|Of course some were clever and wished for MORE than 3 wishes....|
|We shared about 5 or 6 so far with the whole class at the Author's Chair....|
|And our glittery Leprechauns are so cute....look at those orange beards!|
|Kids are very creative writers.....|
|I loved reading all about their 3 wishes....|
|Fun St. Patrick's Day Song we sing (Tune Jimmy Crack Corn)|
SINGING AND DANCING UNTIL THE DAY IS DONE
LOOK AT A LEPRECHAUN, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
LEPRECHAUN, LEPRECHAUN, DANCE FOR ME!
You KNOW those little guys are VERY TRICKY!
St. Patrick's Day art project.....
The Leprechaun we made from butcher paper and construction paper in green, black, peach, yellow and orange, 1 x 7 inch strips for the beard. Then I glittered the yellow buckle after they drew a black marker square inside of it. We used wiggly eyes on top of Walmart dot stickers in green. The hair is some crimped wrapping paper filler in the paper aisle of Roberts or Michaels gift wrap and bag section. Sometimes orange is hard to find so look early.
For writing this week we are finishing doing a narrative piece on "A Person I Treasure..."I love reading about whom they love in their lives. It is a special piece we keep in their writing portfolios. They will be a special treat to bring home at the end of the year.
RAINBOW CAKE....it had 6 layers of color inside too!
Here is a copy of the letter I send home for the Leprechaun Traps. Everybody participated. Check them out HERE.
Another fun set of activities can be found at What the Teacher Wants HERE.
A fun "Lucky" Bingo game I found was at the dltk WEBSITE HERE! I also found some cute art ideas on another Teachers First website. The link is HERE. It's Irish "word bingo". The kids can do this one at a center.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
