~ How to use this resource: This resource has been designed for teachers to introduce young children to the Irish holiday. Teachers should first read the six page, factual book entitled, ‘A Book All about St. Patrick’s Day’ (pages 5-10) many times prior to completing the ‘about’ worksheets. You should cover the pages of choice from 11-25 that detail the origins, traditions, symbols, folklore and customs of the holiday. Pages 26-38 should complement your language program. Students will enjoy many of these sheets bundled into a work book, using the cover page on page 4.
Teachers must model and demonstrate how to work through each worksheet with young children. The collection of activities is appropriate for kindergarten and grade one with guidance.
****** This file has two sections; the 'about' worksheets and the 'vocabulary' worksheets as well as a colored, factual book which relates to the worksheets.
