Teaching first grade definitely has it's pros and cons on holidays!! Pro: You get to do silly things and they think it is the greatest!! Con: The kids are crazy ALL week!!
The other first grade teachers and I decided to mess up our classrooms, tie up the chairs and desks with string, and put little green leprechaun foot prints all over our classrooms. When the kids came in, they went nuts! It was so fun to see their reactions! They tried to find the leprechauns all day long! My cute mom came in and brought my class homemade sugar cookies (YUMMY!!!), and a St. Patrick's Day word search. They loved it! Here are a few pictures. They may be a little hard to see, click on them and they become bigger!! I can't wait to do silly things like this with my own kids! Thanks mom for teaching me to LOVE holidays!!
