Oh…St. Patrick’s Day! It’s just around the corner. St. Patrick’s Day activities are always fun to incorporate into centers and small group instruction. For our little first graders still struggling with their short vowel sounds, the Pot O’ Gold activity might do just the trick. You can easily differentiate this activity by choosing which and how many vowels to use. Students simply name the picture and then places the picture on the correct pot.
Many of my first grade friends are struggling with consonant digraphs. Sorting the pictures in the Pot O’ Gold activity may help them distinguish between these sounds. When you download this activity you’ll receive 40 colorful gold coins with pictures containing sh, ch, th and wh.
The Pot O’ Gold activity is also available for r-controlled vowels and word families.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
