# St. Patrick’s Decimals and Fractions

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!

# Counting Shamrocks

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!

# St. Patrick’s Day Grammatical Poetry

So many of my readers enjoyed my previous posts about grammatical poetry, that I decided to make some more. So here’s another one. It’s a fun language arts activity that will help your kids review grammar while composing their own poem about St. Patrick’s Day.

# St. Patrick’s Day Persuasive Writing

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.

# St. Patrick’s Day Story Starters (with planning sheet)

I’ve found kids write better stories when they think about the parts of a story, plan them one at a time, and then put it together. This is exactly when my St Patrick’s Day story starters intended to go. I made two for my students to choose from. They use the picture as a spring board and then plan/write from there.

# Candy Thank You Notes for Teachers & Staff

A fellow teacher recently showed me this thank you note she had received at Christmas time.

It made me think of a few things:

1. How good it feels to be appreciated.
2. How many people it takes to run a good school.
3. How I show my appreciation to those I work with.

I’ve created this thank you printable (3 color options: blue, green and pink) to make it easier to show your appreciation to your fellow faculty and staff members. I know I don’t always have the budget or time to get a gift for each person who helps me in my job (librarian, cafeteria staff, maintenance staff, office workers, aides, etc.). So if you’re like me, feel free to print this page and attach some goodies (Snickers, Smarties and peanuts/any peanut candy). Be sure to write the recipient’s name in the blank space at the bottom. (These are also great for PTA/PTO groups doing teacher appreciation day.) Spread the love and your school will be all the better for it!
