St. Patrick's Day Worksheets

Shamrock Sight Word Hunt
At one of reading stations, I had clip boards and this word hunt worksheet. I numbered the shamrocks 1-19 (we just finished numbers 11-19 in Math and currently we happen to have 19 words.) It helped the students keep track of the words they found and which ones are missing. They really enjoyed this activity! (shamrocks were printed on green paper and laminated)

Hunting for words!

 Shamrock CVC words
At another reading station, I had 3 sets of letter stamps and pads. The shamrocks where copied on green paper and laminated. (2 sets) I put them in basket, face down. Students took turns choosing a card and stamping the letters in the correct order to make the word.

Shamrock Addition
At a Math station, I had this worksheet and a bucket of foam dice. The students take 2 dice, roll them, add the dots together and color the shamrock (any green color) with the correct number. When a  student "won" they rolled the dice with their classmate and helped them "win" too!

Dr. Seuss Shirts

shirts were purchased at Michael's 4 for $10, plus 15% off teacher discount.

iron on transfer sheets were 10 for $20 at Joanns BUT we had 40% coupons for each packet. I think next time, I'll buy the ones at Michaels, they are cheaper and may work just as good!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
