Luring Leprechauns and a Wedding

Oh my, the lead up to spring break was filled with such fun and excitement!

Leprechauns made footprint appearances early in the week. This led the students to design, bring in and set their traps. Such excitement, especially from my own first grade son!
And the traps from the them!

We also completed our Luring Leprechauns experiment (the students used vinegar and salt to clean pennies), and sure enough those tricky little leprechauns snuck into the classroom and stole the shiny pennies. Click here to grab a freebie copy of this experiment for next year.

On Friday, the entire first grade headed out on a field trip to the butterfly museum.

We wrapped up the field trip and my wonderful teammates took all of the kiddos back to school on the bus so that I could head out of town for my little brother's wedding. He was married on St. Patrick's day, so I'm sharing a few photos. I hope you don't mind!

My sweet mom decorated the cake and I was her assistant cupcake decorator.

My all grown up, little brother and I...posing with our gold and green shoes.

It was such a fun wedding, candy bar and little green mustaches (on my cute cousins)!

Spring break is almost over. I can't believe we only have one more quarter until the school year is over. Boy has this year flown by!
