Holidays in the classroom can be stressful. Here are my favorite low-prep Saint Patrick’s Day activities you can use in your classroom tomorrow!
1. St. Patrick’s Day Coloring Activities
These activities are suuuuuper low prep, and perfect for some meaningful review while celebrating the holiday. I have Saint Patrick’s Day coloring activities for:
Basically the students decide their answer to each question, and they color the coloring sheet based on the answer they chose. This means that they are SO SO easy to check! Just literally look at how the picture is colored and you can tell if the student had the correct answers, or if they were a little off.
I’ve used these two different ways in the classroom. Option one: Use it as a center activity. All students need is the questions, coloring sheet, and crayons! Option two: Use as a whole class activity. Put some music on, dim the lights, and just let students work around the room! These are great if you’re short on time but still want to throw some Saint Patrick’s Day activities into your classroom. Click here to check them out!
