We have a fun filled week planned. I don't know if it's the sunshine that has made me excited about teaching or what but suddenly I have found my way out of my teaching slump. We are learning all about the letter P this week and I planned something fun for every day. On Monday the children dressed in either Pink or Purple. On Tuesday they were able to wear PJ's to school. On Wednesday they wear old clothes because we are going to paint - a lot. On Thursday they are going to dress like a pirate and on Friday we are going to have pizza and pop! On top of all of that fun, I forgot about Saint Patrick's Day. So today after reading several St. Patrick's Day books, the children decided they wanted to catch a leprechaun. So...... I found an green bucket, blew up a green balloon, the children added glitter and we made a Leprechaun Hotel! They are so excited to see if we catch one after their naps. This my friends is what teaching is all about! When they have fun learning, I have fun teaching and the same goes for them. It has been so much fun today. I love that they use their imagination. Children rarely are allowed to be children anymore. They are just pushed to grow up way too fast these days.
