March 13-17

This week we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! We started the week by examining the rainbow. We found out a rainbow is made when light passes through a prism. The prism breaks the light into different colors. We also found out that water can act like a prism which is why sometimes we see a rainbow when it is raining. We used our imagination as we wrote about what we might find at the end of the rainbow. We also wrote about a person who is worth more than a pot of gold. Finally we looked into the life of St Patrick. After watching a video about his life, we discussed how St. Patrick used the Shamrock to teach people about the trinity. Then we colored a shamrock to remind us of the trinity. On Friday, we had a visit from Lucky the Leprechaun. We found our classroom a mess that morning and a note that he lost his shoes. As we cleaned up the mess, we found his shoes. When we got back from recess his shoes were gone and he left us a treat.
