Taste The Rainbow!

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and I'm getting stuff ready for our official kindergarten Leprechaun hunt. This will be my first time doing it, but I'm crazy excited! I'll be sure to write all about it when it's done... but until then, here's a little freebie I'm sharing just with you! I made these bag toppers to go on top of bags of skittles. You know... in case a naughty Leprechaun wants to leave a little treat behind! *wink*

What, if anything, do you do to celebrate St. Patty's Day in your room??

Seuss Week Shenanigans!

Dr. Seuss week is one of my favorite weeks of the year... we celebrate a fabulous author in very non-traditional ways. The sillier, the better! Here's how we did it in Kindergarten Enrichment...

Monday was "1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" day. We read the book, ate colored goldfish (after counting and graphing them) and dressed in primary colors. I even made some Seuss-y shoes to wear all week!

Tuesday was "Cat In The Hat" day. We read the book, dressed in red/white, ate fancy cheesesticks, did a directed drawing, made hand puppets and practiced rhyming.

Wednesday was "Happy Birthday To You" day... we partied and celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday! We dressed up fancy, ate cupcakes, read the book and sang "happy birthday" to our favorite author.

Thursday was "Green Eggs and Ham" day. We read the book, made-then-ate green eggs and ham, made predictions about whether or not we'd like it and then wrote out our conclusion, practiced rhyming and wore green. For the record, all but 2 kiddos LOVED the green eggs & ham... out of all 3 kindergarten classes at our school. I was surprised!

Friday was "The Lorax" day. We wore our jammies, read the book, watched the movie and munched on goodies. I didn't get any pictures... I guess we were too relaxed! Haha. But it was a lot of fun! :-)

And finally, our school had done a door decorating contest to go with the reading theme. This is what I came up with.

Hope Dr. Seuss enjoyed watching us celebrate his awesomness! ;-) I would love to hear how YOU celebrated in your class.
