This week we have been learning about Saint Patrick and all the fun things that have to do with St. Patrick's Day.
On Monday we learned that Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. He used a shamrock to teach the people of Ireland about God. Saint Patrick told the people that the shamrock was like the Trinity, that in the one God there are three divine beings: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We learned that St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in countries around the world and is usually celebrated with a parade.
We also disused many symbols of St. Patrick's Day:
1. Wearing green is said to bring good luck.
2. Leprechauns are tiny people dressed in green and collect pots of gold. They say that if you catch a leprechaun, he will lead you to his pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
Then the children made a shamrock with the Trinity on it.
Yesterday we read the story Leprechaun on the Loose. The story is about a Leprechaun on the loose in a classroom and only one boy knows he is there. Then the children made the most adorable Leprechauns.
During recess yesterday all the children were pretending to be Leprechauns and trying to catch one another. HEHE
Today the children are going to go on a color hunt in the classroom!
