During the month of March Mr. Lyons usually has some friends from Ireland visit Pine Glen. These friends are tiny people who listen in on all the classrooms and visit the quiet classrooms that are focused and working well. This year Room 101 had a wee person or leprechaun named Liam visit our classroom. We decorated our classroom with shamrocks for the window and door and we hung rainbow clouds from the ceiling. We created leprechaun pictures on the iPad and then we wrote about what we thought leprechauns looked like. Mrs. Parnell taught us many leprechaun poems and a chant about leprechauns. We also made a book about positional words and used leprechauns to help us remember these words.
Below are photos of us creating our leprechaun pictures and then we shared our iPad drawings and written explanations with Room 103. We explained the project that we did and then Room 103 also did these drawings and writings. Room 103 also had a leprechaun visiting their room. These visits really help the kindergartners focus on their work and and they had great anticipation for when and if the leprechaun would come back to leave his treasure. Liam the leprechaun left us tricky messages we needed to solve by filling in the missing letters. This was hard work to decipher these messages, but it was worth the hard work. Please see next post with all the different treasures he left students in Room 101. We were very LUCKY this year!
