St. Patrick's Day!

We incorporated St. Patrick's Day ideas into our daily learning and had fun with projects and number partners of 10.

Students made this cute four leaf clover project using construction paper (different shades of green). They all turned out beautiful and unique just like they are. 
Great for small motor development and strengthening the muscles in those little hands!
We talked about what we would do if we found a pot of gold. It was very interesting to listen to the children's answers.
I gave the kids index cards and had them write equations / partners of 10. The rainbow was a great visual for the number partners!
We, of course, wrote a few equations as a whole class first. I made sure that all kids understood what was asked of them before letting them work independently.
We also used strips of construction paper and made a rainbow chain which we attached to a pot of gold. Students cut circles out of yellow construction paper for the gold coins and used gold glitter.
Our display was beautiful! I love mixing things up and adding new ideas!

Have a great weekend and visit again soon for more ideas!
I have lots more to share :-)
