St. Patrick's Day

These spinners have been a big hit this year!  Although with my Valentine one, a young man in kindergarten got  red marker all over his nose that I not only sent him to the bathroom once, but twice to clean it off!
I try to coordinate the colors with the spinner, so this one will be a green... wait for it.... Vis a Vis!!! The students have been enthralled with them.  We don't use overheads anymore at my school.

When I make these matching cards,  I cut off the excess and the top, then I use a marker and make squiggly lines on the back for easy replacement when one of my froglets looses a card.
On the bag, I write with that color and the name.  (Don't do it the other way, like I did for my teeth one.  I did color and then name- so one, and only one said Green Teeth!  whoops, so the other ones said Teeth Red)

For these non-standard sheets, I have the answer sheets in either a laminated envelope or a plastic one.
The children take a sheet that they need and measure away.  I always leave a little tub by the sheets in case they can't find the item to measure

You can either use gold coins or beans or shamrock erasers!

Stay tuned for photos of these in action!
