Happy St. Patick's Day

All dressed in green, the kindergarten children sit eagerly to hear some Irish tales from our lovely guest, Kathy Brownell.
Kathy explains the game of Cricket.
Kathy plays and sings an Irish favorite and our monthy song, The Unicorn.

Kindergarten had the luck of the Irish on St. Paddy's Day. Oh yes, they did! First we found shamrocks for everyone and some gold dust scattered around our classroom. Those tricky wee folk, they get us every year! Lucky, aren't we?!? Later that morning we were treated to a visit from, our community member, Kathy Brownell. She shared special stories about her trips to Ireland, photos she took of a very, tricky leprechaun, explained the game of Cricket, and sang The Unicorn, with us as she played the guitar. Thank you so much Kathy!


  1. Hi Ms. Mitchell,
    Just wanted to post a link for you to see:
    This is a blog from a first grade teacher, and she uses it to showcase children's reading, among other things.

  2. Absolutely! I would love to showcase the children is our class to let their families see how they have grown as readers this year.
