St. Patrick’s Day Activities

This activity was a huge hit with ED this past week.  I chose some words from ED’s phonics readers and wrote them out on some shamrocks and taped them on popcycle sticks.  I covered an empty cereal box with construction paper and wrote the words out on the box as well and used a knife to create a slit for the popcycle sticks.

I sat with ED each time she did this activity so she could practice reading the words aloud.

You could do this same activity for letter recognition and matching (B-b) or to practice addition or multiplication facts.

I couldn’t find the shamrock template I recommended a couple of years ago (the link didn’t work), so I made my own sheets.

You could also use these to do some shamrock fishing like we did last year:
