Fun Educational St. Patrick’s Day Activities

This activity was a huge hit with ED last year.  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 popcycle sticks. I sat with ED each time she did...

Leprechaun Bottle Doll: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

DD is feeling a little bit better and wanted to do a leprechaun craft too.  She wanted to do something different than the other kids.  Last evening someone shared a new art website that had lots of elementary art lessons.  I took a quick look and the bottle dolls caught my attention.  When DD asked to do a craft she agreed that the bottle doll might be fun.  She and...

Shamrock- Spelling, Word Family Sort

Confession Time: One thing that I have not done well these past couple of years is to include activities that show word family patterns.  Both LD and DD learned to read easily and early.  Once they were off and reading, I guess I never saw much “point” in going over these kinds of things. But then… then I saw LD struggle as a writer. He has worked hard on the...

Shamrock Fishing Games (multiplication, addition or letter sort)

Today we did some shamrock fishing.  I made three different activities to be age appropriate for my 7, 5 and 3 year olds. LD is working on his multiplication tables from 2s through 6s.  His shamrocks had various problems whose answers fell between 20 and 29 (such as 4×5, 5×5 and 3×7) and other problems whose answers fell between 30 and 39 (3×11, 6×6, etc.) DD’s shamrock fishing was addition-related....

This is ED’s finished leprechaun to the left. LD had me on the floor laughing with his crazy leprechaun hat!!! Kids come up with some...
