A Little St. Pat's Fun

We were so busy last week! We finished reading The Wizard of Oz and celebrated Friday {which I hope to blog about this week} and we also started some St. Patrick's Day fun! Every year word gets around that a leprechaun usually finds his way to Mrs. Plant's classroom and this year's sweet class has already asked me a million times if I think he'll come this year! So sweet!
We've been reading lots of St. Patrick's Day books and the kids love them! One of the favorites is always That's What Leprechauns Do...the kids think the leprechauns are so funny!

After we read the story, we made a little leprechaun tree map and the kids made these cute leprechauns I've been making for a few years now {thanks to Cara over at The First Grade Parade} to hold their personal tree maps.

To follow up with our leprechaun story, we graphed whether we believed in leprechauns or not {this can be found in my St. Pat's pack}. All but one believes in leprechauns!

Another favorite story was There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover {these stories are always a hit} and of course, we sequenced the story! This activity came from my spring sequence pack.

I think the favorite activity of the week was using "gold" during math everyday. We used it along with these pots to practice base ten, addition, subtraction, and story problems. It was definitely a hit!

And, just for kicks, I wanted to share this picture. I love the way he's so focused on his workshop...makes my heart happy!
Now I'm off to bed...hoping I don't walk into a leprechaun mess tomorrow morning ;).
