Bundle Description
17 Amazing and Developmentally Appropriate Saint Patrick's Day Literacy Centers for Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten and Homeschool! These Center Activities are classroom-tested, engaging and FUN! So many to choose from...your class will be challenged and have fun learning!

Included:

Writing:

Level 1: Tracing Lines Vertical & Horizontal

This beginning level will help students practice using their “pinching” fingers to grip a dry erase marker. I usually start my kiddos out with a fat marker. Practice pinching the marker close to the writing tip. Instruct the students to follow the lines with the marker by drawing directly over the line. Remind the students to ‘pinch’, but do not force it. Both horizontal and vertical lines are included. This can be frustrating for some kids, take it slow and celebrate their progress!

Level 2: Correct Formation Write & Wipe

This center activity builds on the tracing activity by tracing a smaller area and forming letters. In this center we still remind students to use their pinching fingers, but this time we follow dots and arrows to correctly form the letters of the alphabet. The size of the lines are smaller and in a confined area. There is no need to trace every letter of the alphabet, but have them ready because you will have a few kids who will want the challenge!

Level 3: Trace & Write

This activity builds on the first two. In this activity the letters to trace are smaller and inside lines. There is also a box where students can independently write the letters they have just practiced tracing. This can be a real challenge for early learners, but the joy on their faces when they see that they can write a letter without the lines to guide them is the BEST!

Extra! St. Patrick’s Day Trace & Wipe or Trace & Color

I've included some fun trace and color or trace and wipe sheets for extra practice and a different challenge. Use it instead of the tracing lines, or fit it in where you see it working best!

Vocabulary:

Level 1: Saint Patrick Vocabulary Matching

This beginning level will help students notice the similar ending sounds of words. As they say each word on the picture card, they will look at the cards to match and say each of those words too. Listening to themselves make the sounds and listening to teachers repeat the words will help them learn which sounds rhyme and which do not. It is a fantastic way to go slowly and really emphasize the ending sounds of words the kids hear and notice what is similar and what is different.


Level 2: Saint Patrick Bingo
This level builds on the first by adding the element of finding the vocabulary picture in a sea of other similar pictures. You can use this level to talk about everything you are learning about this fun holiday as you play!


Level 3: Saint Patrick Vocabulary Puzzles

This activity builds on the first two, but adds the element of putting the words in print to the pictures. Each puzzle has only one solution-therefore, the picture has to go with the correct vocabulary word. Some PreK kids may be ready to read simple CVC words such as ‘pot’, but even at this level…you can show directionality of print and point out letters and sounds that you know.

Letters:

Level 1: Shamrock Uppercase and Lowercase Match

This beginning level letter match center focuses on uppercase letters having a lowercase match. Students can demonstrate knowledge of upper and lowercase letters and become more confident in identifying the matching letter for each. This can be a challenge at first, but repeating activities like this one makes finding the matching letter easier and students love the confidence they feel as they become able to identify more and more matching pairs!

Level 2: Lowercase Letter Clip

This activity builds on the first, but adds the element of independence. It also adds a fine motor skill using ‘pinching’ fingers to open the clothespins. This center allows the students to figure out which of the three lowercase letters is the match for the uppercase letter shown. Students gain confidence in their knowledge, and with a teacher close at hand for help…they can have their work checked and verified!

Level 3: Mark the Letter-Upper and Lowercase
This level builds on the first two. There are mats with Uppercase letters and Lowercase letters along with fun candy cane font letter cards. You can do a straight match by using the uppercase letter mats with the uppercase letter cards, or the lowercase letter mats with lowercase letter cards. To challenge your students, mix them up! This is a great assessment activity for letter recognition!

Rhyming:

Level 1: Find the Rhyme; Rhyme & Match

This beginning level will help students notice the similar ending sounds of words. As they say each word on the picture card, they will look at the cards to match and say each of those words too. Listening to themselves make the sounds and listening to teachers repeat the words will help them learn which sounds rhyme and which do not. It is a fantastic way to go slowly and really emphasize the ending sounds of words the kids hear and notice what is similar and what is different.

Level 2: Is it a Rhyme?; Rhyme Sort

This center activity builds on the matching activity. Say the pair of words on each picture card. They decide if the words rhyme or if they don’t rhyme. Picture cards are placed on the proper mat. Game is played until all cards are placed on either the “Rhyme” or “Not a Rhyme” mat.

Level 3: Find the Rhymes: Rhyme & Match 2!

This activity builds on the first two, but adds the element of finding MORE rhyming words. Each Mat has a anchor word for the rhyming family. Each anchor word has 2 words in the same rhyming family. Students are challenged to find both the words in the represented rhyming families.

Extra! Rhyme Time Board Game

This activity builds on the others by taking previous knowledge and putting it to work. Students will draw cards with a picture and the words “Rhymes with…”, the students move game pieces around the board by finding the correct rhyming words! This takes critical thinking and developed rhyming skills.


Beginning Sounds:

Level 1: Letters & Sounds 2-part Puzzles

This beginning level will introduce that each letter has a sound. Each self-correcting puzzle has a lowercase letter on one part of the puzzle and 3 beginning sound pictures on the connecting piece. There are 2 ways to work this center…find the beginning sounds pictures to match the letter, or find the letter to match the beginning sounds pictures on the larger piece.

Level 2: Sound & Clip

This activity builds on the first by including 3 letter choices for each beginning sounds picture. Students must know the sound of each letter pictured to figure out which best matches the beginning sound of the picture. This takes a good working knowledge of letter sounds.

Level 3: Letters & Sounds: Match the Letter!

This activity builds on the first two, but adds the element of finding the correct letter to match the beginning sound pictures from the entire alphabet. The use of manipulatives and finding the letter on their own increases the difficulty and the knowledge needed to complete this activity. This activity may need a lot of guidance at first, but will be easily done independently as skill levels increase.
