Leprechaun Twist and Super Scientist in Full Swing!

So I know it's been forever since I've posted, and I could tell you all about my horribly busy life...(teacher, mother, student, wife, etc.) - so pretend I did {Blah, Blah, Blah} - Now I feel better! :)

I just had to share these Leprechaun posters we did when we returned from Spring Break.  The wanted posters are from Erica Bohrer and you can find them here.  Instead of drawing a picture this year, my kiddos dressed up as leprechauns.  Yep!  I bought a green plastic hat, bow tie, shamrock sunglasses, and some stick on beards and my students were transformed!  We laughed so hard and had so much fun taking these pictures. Here are some of my students  leprechauns!

Even the GIRLS wanted the beard and mustache! 

I printed out their pictures, cut them to fit the poster and they loved writing about the wanted leprechaun (themselves)!

I wanted to share some photos of my SUPER scientists (and I do mean SUPER)!  I am amazed every year at how excited and very serious my first graders are about their experiments.  If you would like to know more about the Super Scientist Experiments in my room, you can read my original post along with some freebies that accompany this project.  Now to see the magic:

  Erupting Volcano

Tornado in a Bottle
Oil Bubbles

Rising Heat

Magic Milk

Liquid Mix-Up
Screaming Glass

Acid Test

Dancing Raisins

Air Pressure Water Rocket

We still have many more left and they can't wait until it is their turn.  I love to see their eyes light up, and the "ooohs" and "ahhhs" and "wows" as they perform their experiments.  I hope to make a presentation with all my super scientist experiments so that students (and parents) will have a keepsake of all the awesome science experiments we did throughout the year.  
Tomorrow is Friday... Yay!  Going to see Hunger Games this weekend.  Any fans out there?  Can't wait!


  1. I'm laughing... great idea! Next year I hope to start an weekly Super Scientist. I really like it!! I love reading your posts.... love your activties!

  2. Love the experiments. I plan to get this book and start experimenting with my class. Before I do could you list the name and author of this book. Thanks for sharing.
