Did we catch him?


A little leprechaun was hanging around our classroom during St. Patrick's Day week. He sent a note saying he'd give us his pot of gold if we could catch him. We really tried! Take a peek at the pictures and see what happened!!






We are coming to get you!!

Mr. Martin was off chasing him so Mrs. Sah read the note he left behind in his office.


Mrs. Blaustein joined the chase and this was the note left behind in the library!


And, we couldn't find him in the kitchen!

Someone thought this might be him!

OH MY!!!!



The kids were sooooo excited to see what happened in our classroom!




So, in the end, we didn't find him but the kids were pretty excited about their gold coins and rainbow licorice!

A Special Author Visit

On Friday, March 3 we welcomed children's author Sarah Beebe to our classroom!!  She read her book A Golden Adventure--The Hunt for the Missing Rainbow.  The kids really enjoyed the story and hearing Sarah discuss the writing process.  It was a perfect fit as we are in the midst of writing narratives.
