St. Patrick's Day: St. Patrick's Day Poem and Activities: Do you need some last minute St. Patrick's Day Activities? This is an original St. Patrick's day poem with no prep St. Patrick's day activities. The poem contains many r-controlled vowel words, as well as Grade 2 sight words. The activities focus on fluency, sight words, phonological awareness (phoneme segmentation), and r-controlled vowels.
Pick and choose the St. Patrick's day activities that suit your classroom needs to use in one day or check out the suggestions provided for using the packet as a week long unit.
I start each morning with a 15 to 20 minute shared reading activity:
Monday - cloze reading of St. Patrick's Day poem playing "Guess the Covered Word" (uses MSV and Tryin' Lion reading strategies!)
Tuesday - reorganize lines of the St. Patrick's Day poem.
- phonological awareness activity focusing on segmenting
phonemes in words.
Wednesday - fill in the blanks with Grade 2 Dolch words.
Thursday - r-controlled vowel sort.
Friday - print an original copy of St. Patrick's Day poem for students to practice reading to their classmates. By Friday, students are usually quite fluent with the poem!
This packet will be part of a larger bundle under construction so if you'd like more, follow my store, Mrs. Hanley's Helpers.
Any feedback to help me improve my products is greatly appreciated!
