Engineering, Literacy & Leprechauns!

Whales began the week making elaborate leprechaun traps. After doing a bit of reading, Whales decided that the wee folk loved shiny objects, tiny spaces, bright colors and (most importantly!) leprechauns were able to read. The elaborate traps included detailed instructions, an invitation to stay, or a question for the leprechaun to answer. 

During Whale lunch time, the rascally wee folk visited our classroom - and what a mess they made! We entered to find chairs tipped over, books strewn about, glitter on the floor, and small gifts and notes left near our traps. It was soo exciting!!
