Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day!
Here’s a fun and easy math idea for working with arrays.
I used little cauldrons I had left from Halloween and turned them
into pots of gold!
Shhh….The “gold” is Lemon Heads candy. You can also use
butterscotch hard candy and black salsa bowls usually found
in most grocery stores.
They make good St. Patty’s Day pots too!
Have your students use the candy to make equal groups. They then write
the addition sentence and the multiplication sentence in their math journals or
you can use this little recording page.
Here’s a little pot o’ gold writing craft to go along with your math fun.
This St. Patrick’s Day Writing pack includes lesson visuals/printable charts
for 2 mini-lessons on the history of St. Patrick’s Day and defining a leprechaun.
We used gold ribbon left over from Christmas to add the “gold touch”
but you can also use yellow tissue paper. Simply cut the tissue paper into
1-2 inch squares and have your students squish them a little and glue them on!
