St.Patrick's Day

We are about four weeks away from St. Patrick's day and the invasion of the color green.  However, if you're like me, you need to start gathering materials for that week so that it can be ready to go!  I've started re-vamping and creating materials to use and finding materials online.  Here are the documents I've created (the clipart was all found using google images).



St.Patrick's Day Artic. Cards for /r/: 
Print 1-2 copies of the cards (depending on number of students playing), shuffle, have students draw a card and say the word (isolation, in sentence, etc).  They keep the card and play continues.  If they draw the Leprechaun, they lose all cards.  The pot of gold allows them to draw another card.  The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.  Variation: Print 2 copies of the green word cards and play Go Fish with these cards!

St.Patrick's Day Game Board: 
Print the game board.  Students start at the space labeled "start" and roll the die to move.  If they land at the large end of the rainbow, they move along the rainbow to the space pointed to.  If they land on the red "Lose a Turn" space, they lose 1 turn.  The first student to reach the "finish" space wins. 

Silly St.Patrick's Day Artic Fill-in-the-blank: 
Print the board.  Have the student draw 1-2 artic cards (from the artic playing cards) and place them in the white boxes.  They then say the sentences with their words included.  They end up with some truly hilarious combinations and we have written our favorites on my whiteboard throughout the week.


Other St.Patrick's Speech/Language resources: 

More to come as others start to create things for SPD 2012!!!

  1. Thanks for the free resources! I had a problem downloading the /r/ cards. When I click the link, it takes me to a jpg image with only 6 cards. From the picture, it looks like there should be more. Thanks again.

  2. These are great! What kind of program do you use to create the /r/ cards? I might need to recreate them (not allowed to use that much colored ink at school, ugh) Thanks!

    1. I just used Microsoft Word. You could print them in grayscale to save color ink if you don't mind that.

  3. Great, Great new blog! I am an SLP in the Minneapolis area and I found your blog on the blogroll of Speech Time Fun. Love your ideas, especially the Dice description activity. Going to use that one right away. I am also an SLP blogger - most of my "stuff" is related to social/emotional communication skills. I also put all kinds of free stuff out there for folks like you and Speech Time Fun do. I follow probably 80+ blogs (pretty pathetic, huh?) and am addicted to Pinterest. I am adding your blog immediately to my blogroll for my site visitor to check out. Check out my site at http://jillkuzma.wordpress.com - Thanks again for the great activities. I have already "pinned" a couple of your ideas on my Pinterest boards and emailed myself a few documents to my work email to print them out tomorrow. Thanks!!! - Jill Kuzma, Minneapolis MN
