There was a mention on the announcements this morning that a leprechaun had been seen in the school. And as Mrs. Farber's class has been talking about the cheeky leprechaun who has been messing up their classroom and evading their traps, Team Awesome was already aware that a little trickster had been hanging around. Which led to a flurry of activity this afternoon during free choice time as the children built their own traps and Wanted posters to catch the little man. If you picked up your child at the end of the day you might have seen the posters hanging on the wall outside our room and the traps placed willy- nilly around the class. If we don't catch the leprechaun this evening we might have to revisit and revise our traps as many of them don't actually have doors that close. So while many traps have some bait in the form of shiny things, fake gold and even bits of bread and a banana to lure the fairy creature inside, there is nothing to keep the leprechaun in the trap after he eats the bait and has a nap. And that's what scientists do- revisit and revise ideas if they don't work the first time! We'll keep you posted on our leprechaun adventures.
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
