St. Patrick’s Day is the official jump start to spring. There are so many fun activities you can do for St Patrick’s Day. Here are some simple but fun St. Patrick’s Day activities to do with your students. my students.
I’m so Lucky Banner
Use this I’m so Lucky Banner to kick-off your St Patrick’s Day activities by creating this cute banner. The I’m so Lucky banner allows students to reflect on how lucky they are. My student wrote about how grateful they were for family and friends. Your students will get a chance to display their work and when the students’ work is combined it creates an amazing banner to display on a bulletin board or inside your classroom. Teachers who have purchased this product were extremely satisfied and loved making these with their students. This product can be adjusted for lower or upper grades, it comes with a graphic organizer and two versions of the banner. One banner design for lower grades and another design for upper Grade students. I created this versatile product for busy teachers.
Create a Leprechaun Trap
Creating a Leprechaun trap is a fun and playful way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Students will use household items to build a leprechaun trap. This activity could be done at school or at home. I like the idea of doing this activity at school because when students create this activity at school they get to brainstorm with their classmates. and As we know, as teachers when students are able to collaborate they will enjoy the activity more but they also push each other harder and they alway end up creating really creative traps.. You can create a rubric to go with your leprechaun trap so that students know what your expectations will be. This is a fun project to display to share with other students.
St. Patrick’s Day Writing Prompt
You can make Your leprechaun trap activity even better by using this Saint Patrick’s Day writing prompt resource. Inside the Saint Patrick’s Day writing prompt is a fun “How to Catch a Leprechaun” writing prompt. This craftivity not only allows your students to create awesome finished pieces of work, but also they can create a fun cut-out leprechaun to attach their work to. This looks great on bulletin boards or a project students can take home at the end of the week. Inside the St Patrick’s Day writing prompts there are eight other prompts that cover several different Saint Patrick day topics.
St. Patrick’s Day Multiplication-Color by Number
We can’t forget about math! If you are teaching second, grade third grade, fourth grade or fifth grade sometimes you’re going to have students who are still learning their multiplication facts. The Patrick’s Day multiplication color by number sheets are perfect for those students. If you are a teacher who is teaching in a tested grade particularly 3rd or 4th grade this is a great activity because those students get to practice their multiplication facts in a less stressful way. We know that the third and fourth grade test is going to have some multiplication on it so this makes it really simple for them to be able to practice. It’s also fun and they get the color.
I hope these simple and fun St. Patrick’s Day activities help you and your students celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
