St. Patrick’s Day—Where is the Leprechaun’s Gold?
48 skill cards (plus 6 bonus game cards) targeting location and spatial concepts! Have students answer the question, “Where is the coin?”
**Cut out the cards and use as flash cards or in a game….or you can keep the cards in tact on the pages and use as worksheets or on SmartBoards/Interactive Whiteboards! (Note: If using on a SmartBoard, you can’t move objects; however students could circle, write on, or use other tools)
**Students tell where the gold coin is using spatial concepts/location words and also specific details. Ex: “The gold coin is BELOW the girl holding the shamrock.” (You can have students work on just the spatial concepts/location words OR add the skill of using specific details.)
**Location words and Spatial Concepts targeted: in/inside of, off/out of, between/n the middle of/in the center of, behind of/in back of, in front of, in the opposite corner of, top, bottom, top right corner, top left corner, bottom left corner, bottom right corner, center/middle, top center, bottom center, etc.
**Use as a Game: Use skill cards and the bonus game cards to play a game! Cut out all of the cards, place all cards plus game cards in a pile/box/bag. Students pick cards. If they pick a skill card, they tell where the coin is. If they pick a game card, they either Go Again, or Put 1 Card Back! See who has the most cards at the end!!!!
**If using on an Interactive WhiteBoard (SmartBoard), use as an enlarged document/worksheet. Students can take turns expressively telling where the coin is...or…the teacher/clinician can describe where the gold coin is and the student must point to the correct card! PDF’s can also be used on tablets for paperless sessions!!! Understand that the items on the PDF are not ‘movable’ on a Smartboard or Tablet, but you can still use tools (Smartboard) or apps (PDF apps) to write, draw, circle, etc.
**Great for homework or games to send home too!
If using as a worksheet, have students:
*Write the spatial concept word in the box or on a separate/blank page of paper
*Tell where the coin is as they look at each box
*Point to correct boxes as the adult describes (“Find the coin that is between two shamrocks”)
