Shamrock Week was fun. We talked about leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold and Sh words…shark, sheep, ship. The children found ‘shed’ and ‘shining’ as we sang, America, The Beautiful. I pointed to a hanging felt pot with shamrock cut outs and asked the children if anyone knew what they were. “Butterflies?” No. “Fish?” No. Avery said, “Mosquitos!” No. It starts with an Sh. Gracia shouted, “Shlo-vers!” Too funny!
, we made a leprechaun puppet. Navy E. walked in to see our example hanging and said, “So, it looks like we are making clowns today!” Yah, green ones! Ha!
The next day, she walked in to see the word game with students cutting out shamrocks. She announced, “It’s a good thing I came so I could help them (pointing to some of the younger kids in class) read their words!” And she did, helping many students read after reading her own game. What would we do without Navy??? Navy has read over 100 books so far. She is a rock star. Several say they are going to beat her, but that remains to be seen.
We have been making lots of time for reading games. The kids are really starting to get it. The more we play, the better they get. And their team choices!!! So fun! Wolves vrs Dragons,11-6. Carpets vrs Rainbows, 11-9. Pinchers vrs Cupcakes, 10-7 and Horses vrs Wellidies, 6-3. Today, it was The Ducks vrs The Mares, 6-4 and The Baths vrs The Guns, 9-7. Trig, on the Bath team said, “Let’s see if we’re gunna wash those people!” And they did! Fun stuff!
Mrs. Walters: “Have you noticed how Kohl calls you, Mrs. McCooler and Preston calls me Mr. Walters? Everytime!”
“Yes, ha, ha! But have you noticed how Kohl calls Hendrix, Hamrich? Everytime!” Funny, everytime!
Next week is Spring Break. We will not have school all week. Have a great time with your families. From the sound of things, many are hitting the west coast. Be safe!
School will resume on March 19th. See you all then. We love your children.
Much love and devotion,
