St. Patrick's Day Unit


I have fond memories of St. Patrick's Day.  Though my family is from New Hampshire, without a drop of Irish blood in our veins, I loved the stories, crafts, and leprechaun hunts that always came around in March.
 
 
Time to build our theme board!
 
We began our week with an introduction to clovers, coins, rainbows, and the Irish flag by way of a pattern making game!
 
I'm going to be real with you here.  I hate sweeping and I'm a bit of a penny pincher when it comes to food.  Why should I color oats if that could be a perfectly good breakfast tomorrow.  Well, this week has changed me.  I will gladly sweep up after seeing this little guy smiling and contently playing for over an hour (!!!!!!) while I folded laundry, washed the dishes, and made lunch.  Check out our facebook page for a quick how-to video on this.
 
We LOVE color by code pages in our house.  Whether its by shape, by number, or by letter, these pages are always the first to be done!
 
 Porter wasn't exactly into the clip cards this week, but he did enjoy tracing all of the numbers.  That counts for something, right?
 
Leprechauns sure are messy, but they are great at helping to practice skip counting!

Scissors, tracing, and glue sticks- what's not to love about this activity!

Time to get moving with this gross motor activity! 

This week was so darn fun!  And these pictures aren't even half of it!  Check out our  website for more information on purchasing this lesson as a stand alone unit or our full year program.
