St. Patrick’s Day Fun
is an entertaining and helpful resource in which students practice locating spatial relationship or positional vocabulary images and count leprechauns from 1-30. Find Liam the Leprechaun, St. Patrick's friend, on large picture cards, playing cards, and play mats.
*** 3/2/2015: Added 9 new pages of pots of gold 1-30 and a 1 inch "gold" coins for counting works.
Understanding positional words is an important foundational skill for both language and mathematical understanding. These pages include
• 8 color large picture cards (repeated in black and white)
• 9 color and 9 black/white small picture cards
• 4 playdough mats which illustrate the following spatial relationships. The cards are not labeled with the positional word pairs in order to give you more flexibility in their use.
above / below
in (inside) / out (outside)
behind / in front of
on (on top of) / under
next to (beside)
between (in the middle)
before / after
to the left / to the right
heavier / lighter
shorter / longer
The large cards (1/2 sheet) are appropriate for use in a small group. The small playing card sized ones are great for partners, while the play mats can be used in large group or for individual use with playdough and small manipulatives.
Check out the Preview file to see more of the resource.
