St. Paddy's Day in the classroom and Jog - a - Thon

Friday, March 16, 2012
Our school seems to always have jog a thon on St. Patrick's Day which is kinda cute...we all wear green and are super spirited!  The P.T.A. always has a Teacher Dash and this year.... I WON!!!  Last year I was training for a 1/2 marathon so I thought maybe I could win...but they tricked us and made us take our shoes off and find them in a big pile right after we started the dash...LOL that was funny!  This year we had an obstacle course...when I saw the hula hoops and jump ropes I thought maybe  I had a chance.  I love doing stuff like that in my workout DVD's.  Anyway it was very fun and my 4th grade son was beside himself that his mama won. :o)  Here are some fun photos from it.

Here I am with Josh - he's so proud!

our teachers after the dash with Coyote Jack of course. :o)

crossing the finish line!

Now for some classroom fun....
The leprechaun came and really messed things rocking chair was turned over, our big books were all over the floor, there were little green footprints...AND we CAUGHT him right above table 6--- LOL

All over the reading goodness!

How did he get up on our T.V. ?

There he is and he doesn't look happy... 

Here's a close up of making their name irish :o)

Aren't my kiddos cute as leprechauns? It' hard to tell from the photo...but I add O' or Mac or Mc to their last name to make it 
Irish...for instance  Samantha O'Harris.  They got a kick out of it.  
Tomorrow I will be posting pics from my sweet family's St. Paddy's Day celebration. :o)
