We studied similes and made rainbow similes. For each color they had to come up with a simile. For example: As red as an apple. They used food for a lot of their similes. It was a cute activity to see if they understood similes. I just cut strips of colors of the rainbow and the clouds out of white paper.
I decided to hang them in the window to make the room bright and springy!
We wrote about "How to Catch a Leprechaun" and I got some real creative writing out of my students. We did the adorable directed drawing from First Grade Blue Skies to go with our writing. It was so much easier than a craft and shows off their own vision of a leprechaun.
Our school committee also got us green apple popcorn. It was a delicious little treat.
Hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!
