Where’s me gold!?  We all know that St. Patrick’s Day is only one day but why not make it a whole week celebration! This week the children dove into some of the history behind St. Patrick’s Day and learned that the reason we wear the color green is because green represents spring and sadly that is when St. Patrick passed away. In other words we wear green in honor of him. The children worked on both number and letter recognition activities throughout the week as well. We worked on sorting at the math table and writing St. Patrick’s Day words at the language table. The children created rainbows, and made leprechauns too. We worked on how to remember the colors of the rainbow which is ROYGBIV- red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Our friends even dove into the works of Irish dancing and watched some videos on it as well. Fun fact, our very own Miss Tara used to Irish dance when she was a kid! (Pretty cool-huh?) The children have also gone on leprechaun hunts and we have been working on making a leprechaun trap. Maybe this year we will catch him! Stepping aside from the holiday spirit, we also continued with our letter of the week…Xx! We are almost there with two letters to go. The children came up with words that begin with Xx which we only had 3 (xylophone, x-ray and Xavier). We are excited to see all the green for St. Patrick’s Day and we hope that everyone gets out and enjoys the beautiful weather we are having. As always, we hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend.
