How is it March already!? This blows my mind! Anyway, remember the snowflake and Valentine’s Day pattern art projects I posted recently? Well, I made one more of those, but this time, they’re clovers for St. Patrick’s Day! The basic idea is that you fill in each section with solid color or a pattern. Each one will turn out very different, but still pretty cool! Again, you can let your students make their own from scratch by letting them trace different sized clovers on their own paper instead of using the printable below.

Word clouds are really trendy right now. I was playing around with them and came up with this worksheet. Kids will color each word a certain color if it’s a certain type of word (proper noun, common noun, other). Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I recently worked with a 4th grader on finding equivalent decimals and fractions. It inspired me to make this St. Patrick’s Day worksheet about it. I tried to use common fractions (1/3, 1/4, 1/2, etc.) This worksheet is appropriate for upper grades. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I always like having some educational holiday-themed activities handy for students who finish early. This is my newest one in my St. Patrick’s Day collection. It’s a simple ABC order with St. Patrick’s Day words.

I haven’t made anything for kindergarteners lately. And when I saw this cute mouse clip art, I just HAD to do something with it! And here’s my creation… counting shamrocks! Students should fill in the missing number (sequenced 1-16) and then write how many shamrocks there are total. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I love leprechauns! Those pesky little guys spark so much creativity in my students! Here’s a fun writing activity for you to try. The persuasive writing prompt is this: Convince a leprechaun to tell you where his pot of gold is. Kids come up with the funniest reasons! I usually take some time to review what makes a good persuasive writing piece. In addition, I let the kids read their piece to two friends before they turn it in. This also makes a great bulletin board if you’ve got one where people can stand and read what’s on it.
