St. Patrick's Day Math and Literacy Work Stations

Luck has a peculiar habit of favoring those who don't depend on it.  ~Author Unknown

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each morning and night. ~Irish Blessing

I'm feeling lucky that although I live between two towns that were affected by tornadoes last night,  we were unharmed and had no damage to our house or farm. My heart breaks for people who have to literally pick up the pieces of their lives when others, like me, get by with no more than luck and faith. Please pray for those who have to start new and for those who lost family members. 

I know I've said it a million times before, but I feel blessed to have such wonderful readers. We are all trying to do the best for our students that we know to do and sometimes, we can't do it on our own. I am humbled by the sweet comments you leave and the emails I get from you.  You are an inspiration!

To celebrate the first day of March tomorrow, I've posted a St. Patrick's Day Math and Literacy Work Stations Mini Unit that includes 37 pages. 
 
Includes:
Lucky Leprechauns Addition Game 
My Mini Book of -ot Words
My -ot Word Wheel and My List of -ot Words 
Leprechaun Leap Phoneme Segmentation Activity (color and black/white)
Pot of Gold Push (similar to Elkonin boxes)
St. Patrick's Day Spin and Graph
St. Patrick's Day Write the Room

  41. I want to let you know that my Title I kiddos really got into the Write the Room words. I told them that the leprechaun came and turned popcorn words into shamrock words and hid them around the room. They also enjoyed the op words spinner game today. Thanks for the wonderful unit!
