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.

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