This week, we enjoyed reading St. Patrick's-themed books like "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover" by Lucille Colandro, and the "Luckiest St. Patrick's Day Ever!" by Teddy Slater, while also exploring and working in St. Patrick's-themed learning centers and/or activities.
We combined centers, as we searched for the leprechaun's "gold" in our sensory bin, and counted it according to our numbered clovers.
We practiced our cutting skills and strengthened fine motor muscles as we cut and/or decorated clovers.
We further strengthened fine motor muscles as we created beautiful rainbows! We dotted some rainbows, we tye-died some rainbows, and we glued together some rainbows!
We worked on early literacy skills as we identified -drew and/or wrote down - reasons (things and/or people) that make us "lucky".
Last but certainly not least, on St. Patrick's Day we received stickers from a friend's parents. We decided we wanted to send them a thank you card for thinking of us. We worked together to decide what main message we wanted to say, and then we each signed our name. Mrs. Albano also helped draw a clover on our card, for St. Patrick's Day!
