That update I talked about? Well….

March 18, 2017


I forgot my iPad on Friday, so no photos of the Leprechaun activities. I made a new tradition in that the leprechaun brought us nothing. Nothing. Nope, the footprints were enough for us. I had them write in their journals how they thought he got inside, then told them repeatedly that if he was in the building, he was going to be frightened away by all the noise we were making.

I am proud of one thing, though. When our student teacher was here, she led the children through a project about neighborhoods. They were making all kinds of buildings out of boxes and it eventually covered a 4′ x 8′ piece of cardboard. It lived in the hallway a couple of weeks, then in the commons for a week.


I was wondering how to get rid of it without breaking their hearts.


Problem solved.

He will pay for it with cake.

    “My whole family could live here” -- in the trash.

    Ha! Just kidding. That was a clever way to have the city “move on”.
    I like the leprechaun footprints too.

    Great idea!

    I wrote in green marker on the the whiteboard all day. That was it for our St. Patrick’s fun. šŸ™‚
