St. Patrick's Day 2009

WOW! What a fabulous day we had today. We participated in St. Patrick's Day 2009. It was an online project to calculate the number of the famous marshmallows within a 14 oz. box of Lucky Charms. Our pictures are below and the results are in!!! We had 60 rainbows in the box and that far exceeded the others. Gold-42, clovers-23, horseshoes-29, stars-22, moons-20, hearts-35, and balloons-36. We had so much fun with the unscramble and word search from the Technospud Projects by Jen site. THANK YOU to all the teachers that help with this worldwide project!! We read Leprechaun on the Loose and shared our family projects. I was so impressed by the rainbows some families decorated and the ingenious traps! You all are so clever. We set those traps before lunch and do you know what happened? Our room was turned upside down by that wee little guy. Chairs were turned over, glitter was sprinkled throughout the room, and there were even chairs up on tables. We didn't catch that Lucky Leprechaun but he left notes in all the traps and told us he was too clever to be caught! He was nice enough to leave us some yummy cookies. A HUGE thank you to Mrs. Weir for helping us all day today. We love ya! Can't wait to see what the next adventure bring us...

I love your post and can tell that your class enjoys these projects as much as mine. I have a 3.4.5 class of special needs students, and we are just starting to blog. We would love to have your class visit and post comments. Websites and emails are NOT required. I have linked your blog on our blogroll. I too was 2009 TCEA Classroom Teacher of the Year. We should really collaborate on a project.

I never knew much about Leprachauns until this year. They sure are mischievious little guys! Thank you for sharing your rainbows and traps. Good job!
