St. Patrick’s Day served as inspiration for students at Northwest Elementary School to enhance their literacy and math skills. Many children donned green on March 16 and 17 as they participated in activities centered around the festive holiday.

Kindergartners created word families based on “at” on green leprechaun hats. They also worked on writing completing sentences using prompts such as “I feel lucky when…” and “Who is worth more to me than a pot of gold?” Their teachers read aloud several St. Patrick’s Day books including “How to Catch a Leprechaun” and “Pete the Cat: The Great Leprechaun Chase.”

First graders tapped into their imaginations and wrote a few sentences describing what they would do with a pot of gold. Second graders worked on their math fluency. They solved double digit equations on coins at the end of a rainbow and wrote two numbers on a pair of shamrocks to make 10.
