This week students celebrated St. Patrick's Day by learning a bit about Irish culture, song and dance while watching the original Riverdance performance. The YouTube clip is shown below.
We discussed how each culture preserves it's folk traditions through the arts, and Ireland is more than just shamrocks and leprechauns :-)
The younger students went on an Irish tour through Build-A-Bear website.
Kindergarten students and first grade classes loved counting gold by 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's with the wee people. Enjoy the activities and don't forget to wear green on March 17!
