Shamrock Math!

We started our Shamrock Math Centers today!  We were going to start them yesterday but we have a SNOW DAY!  Seriously Phil....I think your calculations were off this year.  Snow days in March should be illegal!  These kiddos need their outdoor recess...
Here's a little peek at what we worked on during our Shamrock Math Centers....

There are 9 Common Core aligned math stations in this unit!  You can check it out over here in my TpT store!  Leave a comment telling me how you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in your classroom and I will pick two people to get my centers for free (I will post the winners on Saturday)!



  1. I celebrate St Patrick's Day in my class by using some math and literacy centers with the shamrock theme! I also do several writing activties with St Patty's Day. They love writing about what would they do if they found a pot of gold and how to catch that tricky little fellow :)
    I would love to win your looks wonderful :) Thanks!!

  2. We do writing activities as well...I have them write about why they are lucky. (We do the same kind of thing throughout the year to really focus on our blessings.)

  3. We celebrate by reading a variety of St. Patrick's Day books and then studying about Ireland.

  4. We have already started by making Leprechaun traps! Each day the Leprechaun seems to sneak into the room and cause kind chaos! We also research St. Patrick, read themed poems and rhymes. Of course, we make "Leprechaun Pudding" and use Shamrocks to measure and for math projects!
    I'd be lucky as our sneaky Leprechaun to win.

  5. We do the 'How to Catch a Leprachuan' writing activity after reading some books about St Patrick's Day.

  6. Hello! I am your newest follower. I found you on the Blog By State Linky. I am also a Teacher Blogger from Indiana! I am looking forward to reading your ideas and possibly even working together in the future.

    I have a variety of St. Patrick's Day activities that we use when students finish early.
