St. Patrick's Day Classroom Activities

Today I have rounded up some of my favorite hands-on St. Patrick's Day themed activities that we like to use all March long during centers, small group, and whole group instruction! Make sure you keep scrolling to snag the fun freebie below! 

First up is this fun and easy St. Patrick's day craft! To make these cute shamrocks and/or 4 leaf clovers, all you need are some bell peppers, paper, and paint!  

Cut the tops and bottoms off of the bell pepper. Bonus points if you get a pepper with a long stem - they make a great handle for little hands!  Place pepper "stamps" and a squirt of paint on a paper plate. 

Invite children to dip the pepper in the paint and stamp their fun St. Patrick's day shapes on the paper. 


These Number Sense 4 Leaf Clover Puzzles are the perfect addition to your March math block and can be used all spring longTo complete this activity, students will form each 4 leaf clover by matching the numeral, tally marks, 10 frame, and subitizing dots.

With this Irish Flag CVC Word Building and Worksheet activity, students can sound out and spell 27 different CVC words by placing one letter on each section of the Irish flag. Once students have spelled all of their words, they can show their work on the recording worksheet. You can give students magnetic letters to complete this activity or print and laminate letters in this pack.

These adorable St. Patrick's Day Kids  are the perfect way to incorporate many different skills into your literacy block in a fun, thematic way! Prep once and differentiate for your class using the following ideas:

Students can have fun building these puzzles all March long during whole group, small group, intervention, or for independent practice during workstations or centers.

Do you have students who are currently learning letters or students who are struggling with recognizing letters of the alphabet? This St. Patrick's day themed Pot of Gold Letter Recognition Freebie is a fun, hands-on way for them to practice!  I have even pulled out just the letters in a student's name so that they can practice putting the letters in the correct order and identifying all of the letters in their name.
