St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day is a great holiday in the West for treasure hunting and other exciting activities for kids. In Panda class this year, we used it as a chance to grow together as a class. First, we made simple leprechaun hats for the kids to wear.On St. Patrick's Day, the kids all wore their green clothes and their green leprechaun hats. Then, while they ate lunch, Allison Teacher and Kelly Teacher went and scattered 3 and 4 leaf clovers around the playground. Then, we all went together to the playground and the children ran around, collecting clovers on the playground. After that, we went upstairs and collected our prizes: one piece of candy for each clover they found. The kids all had a wonderful time!
