March Madness!

We are almost to Spring Break! Our first few weeks of March were filled with shamrocks, leprechauns, and a Lucky Day!

“NO LION” we are learning in first grade!

Our centers were filled with gold coins, leprechauns, and shamrocks. Our skills were Gold Coin Patterning, an addition game to 20 called Race to the Pot of Gold, sorting pictures into Long Vowel Pots of Gold using all the long vowel patterns, Shamrock Place Value Sort and counting tens and ones, sorting gold coins with words on them and deciding if they had a long or short vowel sound.

We read several stories about those clever leprechauns and wrote about the leprechaun that came to our school and all the silly, mischievous things the leprechaun did. Here are a few samples:



We also made a leprechaun sentence wheel and brainstormed adjectives to describe a leprechaun then created sentences using our wheels.


We finished up our week with a LUCKY DAY!! We read several “lucky” books, played lucky numbers, and wrote stories about being “lucky kids”.
