St. Patrick’s Day…

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner we got into the Irish spirit and made lots of fun and festive decorations for our room and bulletin board.

Story Time

We read “Leprechaun on the Loose” by Marcia Thornton Jones and “The Luckiest St. Patrick’s Day Ever” by Tedd Slater.

We also read “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover” by Lucille Colandro and “The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day” by Natasha Wing.

Sing with Me

I’m a Little Leprechaun

(to the tune: “I’m a Little Teapot”)

I’m a little leprechaun
Dressed in green,
The tiniest man
That you have seen.
If you ever catch me, so it’s told,
I’ll give you my big pot of gold.

I’m a Little Shamrock

(to the tune: “I’m a Little Teapot”)

I’m a little shamrock
look at me
oh what color can I be

If you said that I was
the color green
then stand right up and YELL
YIPPEE!

Craft Time

We had painted a rainbow with the children’s hand prints outside the week before.  I then cut around the rainbow to add to our bulletin board as well as a large pot of gold and hand print shamrocks.

For letter R week, we had made rainbows out of paper plates, cotton balls and colorful streamers.  I left these up as a part of our St. Patrick’s Day decor.

We made hand print shamrocks out of green paint and green glitter.
