St. Patrick’s Day always seems to be so much for for both myself and students. I know they usually get excited for almost every holiday, but this one just seems to have a little something extra special 🙂 We are not actually in school on St. Patrick’s Day because it always falls the week we have Spring Break, but I definitely like to do some fun activities anyways!
This year, I have gotten more into making things for my own classroom and selling on TPT, so I made a really great packet of math review for the two weeks prior to spring break. We have almost taught each skill so this packet goes back and reviews so many concepts that I know kiddos have not practiced in a little while. For example, we just finished area and perimeter, and seeing some of those kiddos have to MULTIPLY (OH MY GOSH) again.. EEP! And it has only been a few weeks since we officially covered multiplication.
Now.. don’t get me wrong we do use a spiral review in my classroom as well, but they don’t enjoy this as much as these adorable St. Patrick’s Day sheets. Im excited! Here are a few of those adorable pages below.

We are also going to be working on elapsed time this week, so I’m planning to do a fun little project where each kiddo names a leprechaun and plans their day telling what time the leprechaun did something, and the elapsed time between the plans they make. If they want to illustrate this in either Google Slides or some story generator- I’ll let them do that. Then they can share out to the class. **THEIR FACES LIT UP WHEN I TOLD THEM ABOUT THIS! My more advanced kids were itching to grab a chromebook to get going!**
Here is one of my groups getting started on their Leprechaun Day Trip! (This planning page is also included in my St. Patrick’s Day Math Printables)
What other activities do you do for St. Patrick’s Day? I would love to learn about more ideas!
