Your students will love this literacy unit for St. Patrick's Day activities!!
Sight word ‘pick, say, keep’ game: Print, laminate and cut apart each card. Students will turn the cards over. They will pick one card at a time, say the sight word and if they are correct, they get to keep the card. Whoever has the most cards at the end is the winner. In this set, I have included the sight words from the Scott Foresman Reading Street Kindergarten list and the first 100 words from the Fry list. I have also included some blank cards so that you may write in any other words you desire!
Real and Nonsense Word Sort: Print, laminate and cut apart word cards. Students will pick a card, say the word and determine if it is a real or nonsense word. They will then place that card on the sorting mat under the appropriate column. Students may then record some of their words on the recording sheet that is provided!
Vocabulary Cards- 10 St. Patty's Day themed vocabulary cards.
CVC Write the room: Print, laminate and cut apart each card. I have included 5 different sets of CVC words and each set contains 8 words. You can mix-and-match the sets giving you endless possibilities for each recording activity!! Post 8 words at a time around your room (or lay them out on a table). Students will take a recording sheet and write the CVC word on the coordinating line by matching the number on the card to the number on their paper. At the end of each recording sheet, students may pick on word from the eight they recorded and write a sentence using that word.
Sentence Scramble: Print, laminate and cut apart cards. Students will arrange 6 cards at a time to make complete sentence. Each set of cards that go together have the same picture on them and the same boarder color around them. Students will then record the sentences they made on the recording sheet that is provided.
I hope you enjoy!!
