Are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day in a few weeks? If you’re struggling to come up with new center ideas or simply have a few ‘gaps’ in your lesson plans that need to be filled, we’ve been on the lookout for fun and simple activities you might consider working on with your kinders…

In keeping with the 'pot of gold' theme from yesterday, we found this fun word family activity shared by Michelle of Apples and ABCs. The little pots are just darling and repurposing pogs to look like gold coins is simply genius! Plus, we love the idea of actually sorting, filling, and recording!

Of course, with some free clip art and word processing software, this activity can always be adapted to worksheet form as well! See the example below.
