St. Patrick’s Day will be here before we know it! Check out some of our St. Patrick’s Day festivities, and then snag a freebie for your classroom!
You know that I am hooked on directed drawings. We do one every month and I think that it is time well spent. We draw it together and they color or paint them with a parent volunteer or even during indoor recess if they choose to. The skills they’ve learned from their directed drawings have transferred over to their stories and I love it! This one was a freebie from First Grade Blue Skies.
We made these adorable shamrocks to decorate our classroom. You could use cut paper or have your students rip the paper and call it a fine motor activity. 🙂
ST. PATRICK’S DAY SENSORY BINS
My sensory bin scavenger hunts are a favorite in my classroom! Just adding new theme words adds a ton of excitement, but I like to change up the filler too. This year, I added rainbow-colored rice. They love hunting for the words and just feeling the rice!
NO PREP PRINTABLES
Here is a sample of my Easy Peasy Printables for St. Patrick’s Day. I love the option of having some no-prep activities that I can use for fast finishers and independent practice.
Now, for the freebies! Do you have a pocket chart station in your classroom, or are you looking for an independent activity your students can do during literacy stations? This pocket chart sentences freebie is great. Students order the sentences (which are color-coded) and then they use the recording sheet to write and build the sentence. Click HERE to grab it!
