Happy St. Patrick's Day

Green, shamrocks, leprechauns, oh my! We celebrated St. Patrick's Day in style at Cravens...however no pinching was involved! Hannah and Brooklyn took their fashion to a whole new level all decked out in green...too bad I did not take any pictures. We watched a St. Patrick's Day video on KET Encyclomedia...a great teaching resource! The students learned many interesting facts about the holiday. We learned Chicago dyes a river green in celebration, and many other cities host parades and parties with singing and dancing. Traditional Irish food includes corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and scones...yummy! We read the book Lucky O'Leprechaun, and a leprechaun visited the classroom and left hidden treasures! Tomorrow we are creating leprechaun puppets and writing how to pieces! The learning never ends :)
