Cut the cards in half. Children will use their visual discrimination skills to match the clover patterns.

LEPRECHAUN BEGINNING SOUNDS CLIP STRIPS (COLOR 26/B&W 26)

St. Patrick's Day Math and Literacy

Provide clothespins, mini erasers or some other manipulative for children to use as markers. Here, just to add a bit of magic, I used a paint brush to apply a thin layer of glue to the clothespins. I then gave them a a good dusting of green glitter and attached shamrock foam stickers to the ends.

St. Patrick's Day Math and Literacy

ST. PATRICK’S DAY LACE-A-WORD TASK CARDS (COLOR 10/B&W 10)

LUCKY THE LEPRECHAUN ALPHABET CARD GAME PLAYING CARDS (COLOR 27/B&W 27)

St. Patrick's Day Math and Literacy

This is a spin-off of the classic card game Old Maid. In a small group, shuffle and deal all the cards. Players will sort through their cards, placing any letter matches face-up on the table.

Starting with the dealer, each child will take a turn fanning out their hands so that the player to their left can draw one card. Some children may struggle to fan their cards, and that’s okay. Just make sure to emphasize that the children should try to not let the other players see their cards. As your students make letter pairs in their hands, prompt them to discard them immediately onto the table. Depending on how you’d like the game to play out, the player left holding the unmatched card, Lucky the Leprechaun, either loses or wins.
