St. Patrick's Celebrations

We prepared for the holiday this week by incorporating rainbows, gold, and leprechauns into our activities.  We thought it would be a good idea to take our Leprechaun out of our trap. He helped us read a story about Leprechauns.
 We quickly learned just how tricky Leprechauns can be. When we weren't looking, our Leprechaun escaped and left us a mess!

We practiced number recognition and counting this week.  We had to identify numbers and correctly count our pieces of gold.


 We used rainbow colors to paint masterpieces. 

 Look at our colorful paintings!
We also had fun celebrating a friend's birthday this week!
In our literacy center we practiced some sight words and worked on the concept of a word.  We also practiced correct grip on our crayons to help us color neatly.

We worked our fine motor skills by putting together a Leprechaun craft. This Leprechaun will not get away from us since it's made of paper.

Wednesday was Parade Day!  Children put on their green and bundled up to march in the WIPP St. Patrick's Day Parade!

We hope you have a Happy St. Patrick's Day and enjoy your Spring Break!

March 6-10

We continued celebrating Dr. Suess and enjoyed reading many of his books this week! We loved taking our shoes off to read The Foot Book.

After we read the book, we used our shoes to measure ourselves. We had to make sure our shoes lined up toe to heel to get an accurate measurement of our friends.


We also painted some wacky feet!
A Leprechaun came to our classroom last week, but he quickly disappeared.  We decided to make a Leprechaun trap to catch that tricky fellow!

On Wednesday things got WaCkY!
 It all began with that shoe on the wall!

 Our classroom was wacky, our clothes were wacky, and our activities were wacky!

 On our rug center, we made the wackiest potato heads we could come up with!

We searched for some wacky things in our "That's Silly" pictures.
 We decorated our wacky feet to make them REALLY wacky!

Look at those wacky toes!

 Another Dr. Suess book we enjoyed this week was One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

 We loved going fishing for letters and numbers on the rug!

Look what we caught! Children were so excited that our trap worked! We decided to keep our Leprechaun for a bit, but promise to release him before St. Patrick's Day!

Thanks for a fun and wacky week at WIPP!
