This activity was a huge hit with ED this past week. I chose some words from ED’s phonics readers and wrote them out on some shamrocks and taped them on popcycle sticks. I covered an empty cereal box with construction paper and wrote the words out on the box as well and used a knife to create a slit for the Popsicle sticks.
I sat with ED each time she did this activity so she could practice reading the words aloud.
You could do this same activity for letter recognition and matching (B-b) or to practice addition or multiplication facts.
I couldn’t find the shamrock template I recommended a couple of years ago (the link didn’t work), so I made my own sheets.
Feel free to download these free Shamrock Templates if you can use them:
You could also use these to do some shamrock fishing like we did last year:
ED did letter matching last year:
While DD did some addition practice:
Last weekend I shared the St. Patrick’s Day Multiplication pack .. It’s also free to download.
Here’s the link to all of our previous St. Patrick’s Day activities and crafts.
I updated a post from a couple of years ago. It has lots of links to various free St. Patrick’s Day packs for preschoolers:
