1-2-3 Come Do A Few More St. Patty's Day Activities With Me

I had a few special requests this week, and thought I'd combine them all in today's blog article.  I hope you enjoy them.

St. Patricks day activities, st pattys day activities, st pats day activities, st patricks day word search, st patricks day word find, st patricks day games, shamrock activities, shamrock centers, shamrock 10 frames, st patricks day puzzles, daily 5 for march, vocabulary building activities, common core st patricks day, Kyanne, from Wisconsin, wanted a simple St. Patrick's Day word search for her young five students.  Even though there are a lot of word search generators out there, they mostly have uppercase letters

Further difficulties arrise,  because they share letters, show the words going backwards, as well as diagonally and vertically, so I usually make up my own.  I like to include a shape to add interest as well.

Word searches are a great way to practice spelling and build vocabulary, so that's why I think they should be in lowercase letters.  I also like them relatively easy (showing the words in forward-horizontal fashion) so that my kiddos don't get frustrated. 

If you want to do these easy ones with older elementary students, simply give them 1-minute to find as many as they can.  Speed games, help prepare children for timed tests in a non-stressful way.   Besides using them as a game, they are a nice plug-in for your Daily 5 word work activities too.  Click on the link to view/download the 2 St. Patrick's Day word searches.

Surprisingly, I made 97 words from the letters in shamrock, and found 161 words using the letters in leprechaun.  The packet includes recording sheets, as well as my answer keys.  Click on the link to view/download the How Many Can You Find St. Patrick's Day activity.

All of the alphabet packets, include a tip list of what to do with the cards, including games like Kaboom, plus a separate set of upper as well as lowercase letters, so that you can play Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?"  games.   Click on the link to view/download the shamrock alphabet cards.  The kite cards will be done and posted by Monday.

There is so much to cover in a day that I like to over lap subjects and to use an old colloquialism “Kill two birds with one stone.”

Also the consistency of these booklets helps empower students and builds their self-esteem, as it only takes one time for students to need assistance, instructions and then they can work independently on their booklet.

This makes them perfect for a Daily 5 activity or center and frees the teacher up to work one-on-one with other children to help strugglers or do assessing.

You can do one a week or month, depending on your themes or the needs of your students.

They are nice as a home-school connection if you need “homework”, something for students to do when children finish mandatory work, or perfect for a sub folder or something that can be sent home for those students who still don’t “get it.”

Read the booklet as a whole group to review concepts of print and reinforce the vocabulary.

Students read, trace and write the number and number word. They see the “themed object” in a sentence and say it.

They spy the number in a sequence and circle it.

They X-out that many boxes or use a bingo dot marker or stamp.  As an added math concept, I had my Y5’s use 2 different colored bingo dot markers and show me an ABAB pattern. (See sample page above.)

Children cut & glue the set/group to the matching numbered box. My students really enjoyed doing these booklets and they caught onto concepts quickly.

For March I’ve designed 123 Count Shamrocks With Me, as well as 123 Count Kites With Me.

Make these booklets part of your monthly activities and empower your students.  Once you have explained and modeled how to do the first booklet, your students get down to business, and can work independently on their booklets from then on.

This frees the teacher up to work 1-on-1 with other children.

Children enjoy using stickers, X’s, or a bingo dauber to fill in the appropriate boxes of the ten frame.

These also make great table top worksheets. Do one page a day and collect.  When students have done all 10 pages staple their booklet together and read aloud as a whole group to reinforce concepts of print.

Your students will enjoy making, collecting and sharing all of the 123 Count With Me booklets with their families.

There are some for each of the past months. I will be designing more for April and May when the collection will be complete.

If you don't see a counting booklet that fits your needs, or have a suggestion for a new one, feel free to contact me. diane@teachwithme.com   I design new things every day especially based upon viewers requests.
