St. Patrick’s Day Activities, Emergent Reader & a Freebie!

I love St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a great day to wear some green, get a little silly, and just shake things up a little as we eagerly look forward to Spring Break. If you need some festive activities to keep your students engaged, look no further! I have some great ideas to share.

Interactive Sight Word Reader

My students have been LOVING their weekly Interactive Sight Word Reader assignments and I love the improvements I am seeing in their fluency and knowledge of sight words. I created an Interactive Sight Word Reader titled “We Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day” in anticipation of this fun holiday. This 6-page emergent reader sells for only $1 and it is a great way to work on the sight word “we” in a meaningful way during the holiday frenzy. You can purchase “We Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day” from Teachers Pay Teachers.

Rainbow Skip Counting

No St. Patrick’s Day celebration is complete without a leprechaun, and everyone knows how much leprechauns love to hide their gold at the end of the rainbow. Sneak a little math into your activities with Rainbow Skip Counting. The set includes full color teacher charts, full color student charts, and student recording pages to help students master skip counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s. I let my students use markers to rainbow write their numbers and they immediately thought I was the coolest teacher ever. This resource is priced at $4 and is becoming a hot-seller on Teachers Pay Teachers.RAINBOW Skip Counting - great for St. Patrick's Day!

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
