Do you want to have fun with St. Patrick's Day and cover the Common Core? This activity pack is loaded with activities your students are sure to enjoy, while covering several CCSS.
The following are included along with identified CCSS:
1. St. Patrick’s Day Spin, Tally, and Graph: Students have the opportunity to use a spinner to gather data. Data is recorded in a tally table and converted to a bar graph. Students then interpret the data by answering questions.
2. Problem Solving with Lucky the Leprechaun: Students have the opportunity to solve 8 word problems covering addition and subtraction.
3. Lucky the Leprechaun Little Book & Activities: Students will have fun reading this cute little book about an “unlucky” leprechaun. Students read the little book and become the illustrators. Two follow up activities are included tied to the text. The first covers story elements (characters, setting, problem, solution, beginning, middle, and end). The second includes detective activities where students search the text for adjectives, past tense verbs, and declarative, interrogative, and exclamatory sentences.
3. Math & Language Centers:
Math: Sorting Addition Sentences: Students roll a die. They pick that number of cards from a deck of addition sentence cards. The student adds to find the sum for each card, and places each card under the correct sums heading. The student then records the addition sentences under the correct sums on the recording sheet. The next player repeats the steps. Sums 6-15 are covered.
Language: Parts of Speech Sort: Students read and sort word cards into “Nouns”, “Adjectives”, and “Verbs”. A recording sheet is included. Students can also select one noun, adjective, and verb and use these words to create silly St. Patrick’s Day sentences. They have the opportunity to create four sentences and a recording sheet has been included for recording these.
4. Rainbow Mobile Craftivity: Students will have a blast creating an adorable rainbow mobile decked out with a pot of gold and shamrocks! Directions and a photo of the completed project are included.
