St. Patrick's Day

We are getting ready for our St. Patrick's Day vocabulary theme.
Our vocabulary theme sheets are being sent out, which include the vocabulary words, pictures, some tips on talking about colors and a parent article about using all the senses to learn.

Our vocabulary bulletin board is up with our pictures. These are the same pictures sent home to families.

 Our library has several St. Patrick's Day books set aside for the students to read. Lots of green and lots of leprechauns!!
 Our kitchen table even has a St. Patrick's Day table cloth.
 We also have some fun hats for the students to play with set aside at our experiential table.
 The students have oodles of opportunities around the classroom to be bombarded with the vocabulary items. We even have bunches of shamrocks and rainbows around the room, too.

We'll be doing a lot of fun activities in the next week, including  making gold coin counting books,  leprechaun hats, squish bags and a rainbow. Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day and watch out for leprechauns!!
