St. Patrick's Day Fun

Top of the evening to you, lads and lassies!

I LOVE to celebrate holidays in my classroom, but with the demands of a pretty ambitious pacing guide AND state assessments looming around the corner, they can easily get pushed to the back burner.

Here are a few quick and easy ideas for incorporating a little St. Patrick's Day fun into your classroom without sacrificing time spent on academics.



For the wee little folks, my leprechaun-themed review packet is filled with skills that have been taught throughout their third grade year. It would be great for morning work, homework, or any time you need students to be working independently. That being said, it could also be used for high-flying second graders who need a bit of a challenge, or for fourth graders who need a bit of reteaching.

Here are a few things that are included:

Six math sheets with LOTS of problems to practice on each page...


Six ELA pages that review important third grade skills..

Six creative writing pages with prompts...

And a map of Leprechaun Island to practice map skills...
Head on over to my TpT store to find out more about this fun resource!

I also LOVE to have cute, seasonal notes to use in my classroom throughout the year. I use them to write messages to students, parents, and other teachers. My students love to use them to write notes to each other, and it's a great way to integrate meaningful writing experiences. Here are the notes I'll be using in my classroom for the month of March:



These fun, punny notes are available here.

Last, but certainly not least, is the tried and true word search that my middle school students have always loved to do after they finish their daily work...

This puzzle is also a great hit with adults! You can find it in my store here.


However you decide to celebrate the wearing of the green, I hope you have a terrific, memorable day!
