Peek at Week: St. Patrick's Day

Stopping by for a quick Peek at our Week post. Hubby is leaving to head back to Alabama today so I want to spend every last second I can with him :)

Last week we finished up our Dr. Seuss unit. Little delayed because of all of the snow and we didn't get to everything but we still had a blast!

This week we will be doing all things St. Patrick's Day! So excited about this week and our visit from the famous Leprechaun! Check out this post from last year! 
 
 
A few weeks ago we celebrated St. Patrick's Day! This is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate at school. So many fun things to do and learn and the kids love that mischievous little leprechaun. Here's a look of some things we did that week.

Working on our poetry notebooks from the amazing DeeDee Wills!



During math centers we used some great activities from A Differentiated Kindergarten!

My kids loved playing this domino game from the wonderful Jennifer Drake!

We also practiced some base 10 with this fun activity from Growing Kinders!

We also sent home a family project this week. The students had to make a leprechaun trap to catch that sneaky leprechaun. I think their traps came out amazing!!!! All the directions and parent letters came from Ashley Reed's packet. I was so impressed with all of them!!!










We set up all of the traps so that our room would be safe from those leprechauns. Unfortunately, they still found their way into our room, made it passed all of the traps, and destroyed everything! The kids were so surprised when they came back the next day to find this......





 They even found little leprechaun footprints!

Even though no one caught the leprechaun, they did find some gold, a necklace, and a note from the leprechaun in each of their traps. They were so excited to find all of the goodies the leprechaun left them!

The traps were too cute to send home right away so we had to display them in the hallway for everyone to see.

To finish up the week, the students wrote "How to Catch a Leprechaun," and made this cute leprechaun craft from the wonderful Kim Adsit for the cover! I forgot to take a picture of the final project. Sorry!
