Hi everyone! I always have the greatest intentions of writing blog posts with ample time for you to read and implement the ideas but then I get into a new Netflix series (hello Love is Blind Season 2) and I get bombarded by the cat for snuggles, and blogging gets put on the back burner. We are on Spring Break next week so we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day today. I dyed my hair pink last night for a bit of a change and it definitely clashes with the green, but it was still fun to dress up for a spirit day. If you need some ideas for St. Patricks Day read on below!
Decor + Postcards + Treats
I LOVE sending wow mail to my kiddos. While in person I don’t actually mail anything, but instead I’ll fill these out without the postcard backing and I’ll slip them into their mailbags to go home. They love getting a special note from me. The St. Patrick post cards are part of the spring set, which comes with Easter and Spring sayings too!
ST. PATRICK LITERACY IDEAS
March Journal Prompts
If you need writing prompts this set comes with 20! Some are St. Patrick themed, some are about spring and some are just random prompts (like what happens when you loose a tooth). Each journal comes with a writers checklist and 5 images/words that might be useful! This is in a growing bundle if you want prompts all year!
Daily Social emotional learning
Write the ROom
Sight word booklets
March reading bingo
I am not a big supporter of homework, however, I do always ask my families to read each night. These reading challenge bingos have increased our reading engagement a TON. Students love completing the challenges. I am sending this one home for our spring break. The bingos come in 3 sizes and also in black and white. A reflection sheet is also included.
