Go Again” Cards. 1 page of template/Create Your Own cards. To use this activity/game: Print and cut out the cards. You can glue the cards on sturdy paper for added durability. Laminate. Place all cards in a pile or bag. Students take turns picking cards and following directions. Find the leprechaun card...put 1 back! Find gold coin cards...go again! See who has the most cards at the end of the activity! Game = 17 total pages, 102 cards.

Students must either draw, circle, cross out, or underline items on the grids. 2 pages with no pictures (students do all of the drawing on the grid), 2 pages with a grid that has pictures and students cross out/circle items, and 1 template/create your own page.
4) Can You Answer the Leprechaun’s Questions?: Students look at a grid and answer questions that contain conceptual terms. Ex: “What is under the box with one gold coin? 2 pages with grid. 2 pages with blank lines for students to write their answers if desired. Also, students look at a row of pictures and answer Where and What questions, 2 pages. These worksheets are great for practicing language processing (questions with conceptual terms) AND expressive use of conceptual terms and specific detail words!
5) Happy St. Patrick’s Day—Following Conditional Directions: 1 page. This is a great individual, small group, or whole-classroom activity. Print the page and laminate it, or project it on an interactive white board. Students must listen carefully as they decide if they should complete the action or not. This is also a great activity for a quick and fun brain break to get your students listening, focused, and moving their bodies!
