I am linking up with Catia from Always a Teacher and Forever a Mom for Sunday Night Whispers. This is a new linky party that I have enjoyed reading over the past couple of weeks and I am excited for the change to link up tonight! This week on Sunday Night Whispers, we are sharing resources for Spring that we use in our classroom. I wanted to share a couple of the things I will be using next week to add a little St. Patrick's Day fun!

I haven't been able to find many books that explain the traditions and history of St. Patrick's Day in a format appealing to primary students. I was excited when I found this book.
St. Patrick's Day by Anne Rockwell uses children friendly language and delightful illustrations to share some of the history and traditions of St. Patrick's Day. This book is a fun way to explain the meaning behind some of the most common St. Patrick's Day traditions.
After reading St. Patrick's Day by Anne Rockwell, I have my kids record their learning on this FREEBIE printable. You may get a copy of use in your classroom by clicking on the image above.
I will also be adding this fun unit to our math center time. Many of my kiddos have not yet mastered telling time, so this will give them some added practice.
My kids love when I add matching cards to their math centers. They love to challenge each other to make the most sets. This set also includes a set of task cards that I use for Scoot. There are also four printable pages that I can use for individual assessment and progress monitoring.
If you are looking to add a little fun to your math centers this week...check out this Shamrock Time Unit.
