What a busy week! My hubby, who is a teacher, was off for Spring Break this week so I was able to spend a little extra time printing, laminating, and planning than usual. We squeezed tons of fun St. Patrick's day themed activities in!
Shamrock Size Sorting from Oopsey Daisy.
We did the Leprechaun Race Game, size sorting, patterns, and counting cards from Musings of Me.
Shamrock Slap - I basically printed off a set of letters and numbers up to 20. M didn't really "get" the shamrock part of the game but we used the cards to practice beginning letter sounds (she's already an ace at identifying both upper and lowercase letters) and to work on numbers 10-20 (she can count to 100 with a little help, but she isn't very good at recognizing numbers past 10).
St. Patrick's Day Memory - I printed and laminated a double set of 9 St. Patrick's Day themed images. I put one set out upside down, and one set to the side and she matched them all up.
M colored a St. Patrick's day themed coloring page. I consider this motor skills because she's not fantastic at it (due to lack of practived admitedly) and she has a weird grip.

M enjoyed playing with green playdough.
We went to the zoo with some friends and the kids had a great time looking at all the animals.
St. Patrick's Day Family Night.
That's all for this week! Next week we will be doing a Healthy Bodies unit, so stay tuned for that!
We'll be linking up to Preschool Corner as well as Tot School. Visit their websites to find some more great learning activities!
