St. Patrick's Day Centers!

Wow!  I can't believe I am actually making a post mid-week.  That usually does not happen with 3 kids at home and #singlelife since my hubby is smack in the middle of baseball season.  Boo!  I so miss him when he's not here to help, but enough about that!  

So, we are working on our St. Patrick's Day centers this week.  I can see so much growth right now and I am lovin' it!  I love how independent they are working in their little centers and looking more and more like first graders every day.  Speaking of, I am having some first grade teachers from our district come visit my classroom this Thursday to watch guided reading.  Eeek!  But, I get to go watch them on Monday!  Yay!

On with it...All of these centers can be found in my St. Patrick's Day Centers Pack Here.

My students are doing really well with ordering words to build complete sentences.  We will have one of these centers for just about the remainder of the year.  :)
 Working on a new sound /ck/ with word families
 This one is super fun!  I don't know what it is about races, but kids are all over them!
They spin the boy/girl spinner & the ending sound center.  Who will win...Irish boy or girl?
I also included a teen number race in the unit.
 Rhyming Rainbows...they had to read the words and match the clouds to the rhyming rainbow.
 Unscrambling Sight Words...
 Subtraction using dice and manipulatives.
 And....addition using manipulatives
 Counting dots by 10's...
 Not gonna lie....this was one a little tricky...this one is filling in missing numbers to 50.
 Matching teen numbers to number words...
 I do this every year.  I love how bright and colorful they always look, plus it's great to hang from the ceiling and leave up for a WHILE!  :)

As always, thanks for reading my blog!  I hope you find an idea you can use!  :)


  1. These center activities look great. I also like your kites ~ I'm so ready for spring. But, Mother Nature has other ideas for us in Northwest Indiana. 6 - 8 inches of snow are predicted by tomorrow night. :-(

  2. These are all nice ideas for St Paddy's Day. I wasn't expecting for more activities as this. I was actually just browsing for St Patrick's day recipes and craft projects to consider =) Please allow me to pin them on my board. Thank you so much!


  3. These look like a lot of fun. The kites are a sing that spring is near. jobett22@hotmail.com
