We started our St. Patrick’s Week out by reading a few books about the life of Saint Patrick and his ministry in Ireland. We also read a sweet story about a boy in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day. We listened to Irish music (flute and harp) and practiced our Riverdance skills!
Finding Ireland on the map:
Painting the Irish flag:
A rainbow puzzle:
‘Pot of Gold, Roll and Cover’ – L and I took turns rolling the dice and dotting the amount of gold coins that they rolled.
And we bought a special box of cereal to do Lucky Charms graphing:
We pretended we were leprechauns and counted our gold coins in rows of 10. We counted by 1’s and 10’s.
For Art we used green peppers to stamp three leaf clovers in green paint. Ours all didn’t look like clovers, but it gave us an opportunity to discuss how St. Patrick used the three leaf clover to explain the Holy Trinity.
We ate green waffles on St. Patrick’s Day and ended our day with homemade Shamrock Shakes!
My little leprechauns who refused to wear green because it’s more fun to be pinched, and “Green doesn’t go with Libby’s Shoes!” Ha!
Other fun things we did this week:
Play-doh Sight Words
‘Hanging’ at the park!
We had a fun week! We’re thinking Spring this next week, and are looking forward to getting dirty and hopefully growing some plants!
