Wednesday we worked on making traps to catch a leprechaun. The students did a great job working together while making them. I think you will agree they made some pretty appealing traps!

When we arrived Thursday morning, our room was a mess! The window was open, and there were shiny shamrocks all over our room! There was a note to us telling us what a good job we had done making our traps. The leprechaun's name was Finn. He left us a big box of his favorite cereal - Lucky Charms. He told us he had heard that there were more of the green hat marshmallow charms in each box than any other shape. He asked us to check and see if this was true or not.

First we sorted the oat cereal from the marshmallow charms.

Then we sorted the marshmallow charms into groups.

We made tally marks to keep track of how many of each shape we had.

We got to eat the Lucky Charms when we were done. Yum!

  1. I really enjoyed hearing Shaelyn's stories of St. Patricks Day. Sounds like the class had a great time trying to catch Finn.
