Post Avenue Students Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day With a Week Full of Activities

Students in Post Avenue’s Eagles classroom are no strangers to elaborate themed activities, especially with Preschool Teacher Concepta “Connie” Neylon-Lorick and her assistants collaborative and careful planning. This was the case for their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, where they dedicated their entire week to highlighting the cultural holiday’s themes.

Three Post Avenue Students dressed up as leprechauns for St. Patrick's DayPreschool activities revolve around the idea of learning through play, meaning every activity is based on developing students’ fundamental skills.

Students worked on their fine motor skills while making several paper crafts and practiced their active listening skills when a guest speaker, who happened to be a student’s grandmother, came to read a book with them.

Teacher’s Assistant Brittney Williams is one of three supporting the class and was busy assisting the students with decoration projects and readings.

“We did something different every day, from making leprechaun masks and pots of golds that students use to play hide and seek,” said Brittney.

“We decorated the classroom with a beautiful rainbow mural ending in a pot of gold and had green streamers with footprints all over.”

There was also plenty of reading, from the laugh-out-loud classic adventure How to Catch a Leprechaun to Shiny Shapes: Happy St. Patrick’s Day, a book that aims to teach students new shapes, words and cultural traditions.
