Leprechauns and rainbows take over the OC - Teacher Meghan

Magic was afoot this week at Small Friends. Gold, rainbows and leprechauns all added to the fun.

On Monday the kids predicted how many green gems it would take to sink their pots of gold.  

During circle time we looked at the kids predictions and the actual number of gems it took to sink each cauldron. What a fun experiment.

The kids made three dimensional rainbows with a construction paper cloud as a base, different colored strips of  paper, lots of tape and cotton balls for added fluff. 

On Wednesday the kids made festive St. Patrick colored art using a salad spinner, glitter and green, gold and silver paint.

The fun continued when the kids got an opportunity to graph the different shapes of marshmallows found in Lucky Charms.

On Friday the kids made rainbows at the light table by lining a pie plate with skittles and then pouring water over the skittles. The results were magical.

The week culminated with making the most epic leprechaun trap. It was full of gold coins, rainbows, slides and shamrocks.

A castle has been added to our toy area for the next few weeks and the kids are so excited to play with it.

This group of kids loves to build. A translucent marble run kept them very busy!

Their were fairies and flowers on the building table and a rainbow of magnets in the texture table.

Leprechauns, cauldrons and gold added a bit of magic to the water tub this week.

Our friends are always utilizing the opportunities for art, drawing and writing available in different areas of the classroom.

We have LOVED hearing about all the adventures panda has had so far this year.

During circle time on Friday we had a little concert full of Irish music!

We will miss all of your kids so much during this unexpected break from school. We hope to see you all very soon.
Huge hugs,
Meghan and Christine
