Our March Family project was to create a trap to catch these little guys... So right before dismissal today, the kids shared their traps with each other and then set them up with the hopes of catching one of these little creatures! (We do not have school on Friday, so we had to set them a little early this year!)
Here are reasons why I like to do this project and why I believe it is educational!
SL.K.6 I can speak clearly my thoughts, feelings, and ideas.
W.K.1 I can write about something I like or do not like.
W.K.2 I can write to tell someone about a topic.
W.K.3 I can write about an event or a series of events.
W.K.7 I can research and write about on a topic.
W.K.8 I can write to answer a question.
3. My kiddos are writing books! Yep, they are taking scrap paper and writing books about their leprechaun experiences! Awesome! The bottom picture is taken from Kim Adsit's St. Patrick's Day resource.
Here are some examples of their delightful traps!
