The kids LOVED St. Patrick's Day this year. They made LOTS of crafts and even received a special visit from that sneaky Leprechaun. We colored our shamrocks that decorated our room for a while. They used only green to decorate!
A parent of one of my afternoon class students brought these for the class for St. Patrick's Day. She even came and helped with our Lucky Charms Graphing Activity. These rainbows with pots of gold were a big hit. The kids wanted to eat it all in one sitting!
This was by far one of my favorite graphing activities. Each child had their own Lucky Charms graphing chart. They had to sort the cereal from the marshmallows and then sort and graph the marshmallows onto their chart. Once they were done they had to color the correct amount of spaces for each type of marshmallow they had on the graph. It was neat to see how many marshmallows there were of each kind. We discovered that there are more STAR marshmallows than any!
After graphing we got to eat the Lucky Charms with GREEN MILK....Green Milk?? Seriously, that teacher fed them green milk? (I bet know that's what you're thinking) All I did was dye skim milk with food coloring :) They loved it!
And our visit from the leprechaun.....He gave us a special cake with green jellybeans on the frosting. And he left his footprints, handprints and even a little treasure in Mrs. Sherry's room (the daycare teacher)!!
