This week, our story in Religion was the story about Jesus sharing bread and fish to feed a large crowd of people. This week, we all brought in our own snacks to create our own class “sharing snack!” We talked about the importance of sharing and being kind, and we combined all of our snacks to make one big sharing snack! What a fun and yummy way to learn about being kind.
Yesterday at school, we made our own Leprechaun traps! We sketched/planned our traps on paper, then worked in teams to build the traps!
When we got to school today, we were surprised to see that a wild Leprechaun had visited our classroom overnight and made a huge mess!! He also left us a note and some special chocolate coins.
Today we also graphed Lucky Charms cereal! We graphed the marshmallows to see which one we had the most of, and then enjoyed or yummy treat. What a fun day! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Today at school, we celebrated Mardi Gras! We taste tested blueberry and strawberry paczkis and voted on our favorite. It was close, but strawberry won!
After this, we went on our own Mardi Gras parade in the hallway with Ms. Sarah’s class, Kindergarten, and 1st grade! We wore special Mardi Gras masks and danced to jazz music. We had so much fun!!
As part of “Read Across America Day,” we all shared our favorite books together! We had so much fun learning about our buddies’ favorite reads. Then, we took some time to relax and read our favorite books!
Later, we had a Dr. Seuss celebration with Ms. Sarah’s Preschool class! We colored special Dr. Seuss drawings, made our own Thing 1-20 hats, and built “Cat in the Hat” hats using paper and cups! What a fun day.
Yesterday, we celebrated the Lunar New Year and learned all about how people in China celebrate. We watched a video about different foods and traditions in China during the new year, and we also watched a video of a special Chinese parade with a dragon in it! Then, we rotated in different stations with Ms. Sarah’s preschool class! We used chopsticks to pick up M&M candies, colored Chinese New Year pictures, and worked on making a dragon! Then, we went on a parade around the hallway with our dragon! Happy New Year!
