Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

We continued learning all about St. Patrick’s Day this week! The children completed an experiment where they tried sinking a “Pot of Gold” into water. We also completed many more art projects around St. Patrick’s day and even made Shamrock Shakes!

The children used coins and put them into a bowl and tried to sink the “Pot of Gold” to the bottom of the water. After placing many coins into the bowl, we finally sunk it to the bottom!

St. Patrick’s Day

This week we talked all about St. Patrick’s Day! We talked about colors, items and people that are associated with St. Patrick’s Day. The children learned what a “Leprechaun” is and that we associate the color green with St. Patrick’s Day. We also talked about Shamrocks and discussed that they are green and they are a symbol of good luck!

We are Bucket Fillers!

We are a Bucket Filling classroom! 🙂

This week we learned what it means to be a Bucket Filler. The children learned that being a Bucket Filler means that we show our friends and teachers that we are kind, helpful, and caring. We learned that it is important to be kind to our friends and teachers because it shows them that we care about them! If the children showed that they were kind or helpful towards their teachers or friends then they were awarded a star in their “bucket”.

Bears & Hibernation

This week we talked all about bears and hibernation. The children learned that bears hibernate all winter long and they wake up in the spring. We talked about why bears are really hungry when they wake up from hibernating. We said because they were too busy sleeping all winter long! We asked the children what they think bears eat and they said, fish and berries.
