We’ve been doing lots of St. Patrick’s Day activities in our room. Being right in the middle of our state testing window, the students have enjoyed the fun activities. After working really hard on the tests, they need a short break before moving on with the day.
We’ve written descriptive paragraphs on pots of gold about what you’d find at the end of the students’ rainbows instead of a pot of gold. My rainbow led to a pot of adorable puppies who were eager to play. You were able to take one (potty-trained, ha!) puppy back with you over the rainbow. The students had really creative ideas too. As a bonus, the pots make for a cute hallway display for the month of March.
Finally, we’ve been practicing synonyms, antonyms, and homonyms with my matching shamrock templates. Similar to my Valentine’s freebie, the shamrocks come programed with math facts (multiplying eights), but can be reprogrammed with anything you desire. If you want your own copy of those, they’re in my TpT store for $2.00.
