Fantastic Friday!!!

Brochure Information is due March 23. A package was sent home along with another sheet explaining the assignment. Please ensure to bring all of the information for March 23.

Have a great two weeks off!!!

We began the day having art with Mr. Monaghan and physical education with Ms. Lovan.

After we discussed St. Patrick’s Day and what we know about this holiday. We then learned some interesting information about St. Patrick’s Day, Ireland, and the clover.

Here are some:  In Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day, people traditionally wear a small bunch of shamrocks on their jackets or hats. Children wear orange, white, and green badges, and women and girls wear green ribbons in their hair. Many cities have a St. Patrick’s Day parade.

 St. Patrick Day is on March 17 because that is the celebration day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It is believed that he died on March 17 a very long time ago. The Irish flag is green, white, and orange. 

The green symbolizes the people of the south, and orange, the people of the north. White represents the peace that brings them together. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the highest number of leaves found on a clover is 14! Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is hope, the second for faith, the third for love, and the fourth for luck.
After we imagined that we found a pot of gold and a leprechaun gave us six wishes. We thought about what would be our six wishes and then we wrote each one on coloured construction paper. We then cut out a cloud and put our wishes on the cloud to represent a rainbow.

After first recess and lunch we had French. When students returned, they wrote their spelling test, wrote their homework in their agendas and then did some graphing with lucky charm marshmallows!! Afterwards, they answered questions about their graphs.

At the end of the day we had a St. Patrick’s Day house game!

Have a great two weeks off!!!
