I'm not sure I even believe it's already March - but here we are! I have a fun project to share with you today. I love this one because the kids are always so proud when they bring them in! We do this as a whole team and so the hallway is just filled with shamrocks. Sometimes we run down the hallway with our arms out pretending that we're running through a field of shamrocks in Ireland. Or maybe the kids are just running in the hall because they're seven and have more energy in their pinky than I do in my whole body. Yeah, I'm guessing it's probably that.
We have the kids trace a shamrock onto green paper and then take it home to cut out and decorate. The idea is to get families to work on the project together. It's a nice change of pace homework assignment.
I blogged about this project last year over at Really Good Stuff, but at that point I didn't have a direction page to share. But, guess what? I do now and here it is! Just click HERE to download it. I included the direction page to send home and a shamrock pattern. The shamrock is actually smaller than the one we use, so you can either enlarge it or maybe even project it and copy it onto a piece of large construction paper. The ones on my board are actually freehanded by me. I just made a few tracers on tagboard.
Have a fantastic week, my friends!
