There are several types of worksheets. They are counting papers, tracing papers, matching games, symmetry worksheets, maze papers, coloring papers, and many more. The elements consist of colors, attributes, and patterns. The first one is the color. Mostly the writing-frames have three colors. They are white for a black and white one. The others are green and black. The usage of the color depends on the function. If it is coloring paper then white is utilized. For maze paper, bright colors are preferable. The second one is the attribute. Many items are included. Some have pictures of children, animals, an elf, and many more. Of course, these are related to the celebration of Saint Patrick in Ireland. The last one is the pattern. The most basic one is the leaf with three petals. Nothing more. However, there are also patterns such as a maze, dots, and polka-dots. The motifs are used in various types such as tracing papers and maze papers. It serves the purpose of learning and fun.
Since there are many kinds of worksheets, provide all the papers together. Before the class begins, explain simply about Saint Patrick’s Day. Then, you explain the types of worksheets they are going to do as well as the benefits of choosing a certain type of task. After they are done, they can discuss with their friends why they like to do a certain activity such as solving a maze, coloring pictures, counting objects, and so on. Now, they take the paper which is in line with their planning. Give them the supplies such as packs of coloring pencils, crayons, markers, and pens. Let them do their work. If they are finished, they can exchange the results with their friends.
It is Saint Patrick’s Day and you will have a large dinner with your family. You want your children to contribute to the making of the party. If so, they can make the decorations for your dining room. A banner would be wonderful. The supplies necessary are craft papers (green and white), shamrock printables, hole punch, scissors, glue, yarn, and a ruler. First of all, cut the white papers into rectangles. They can be in the size of 3” by 6” or you can make them based on your taste. Second, print the shamrock design on the green craft papers. Cut them around the edges. Glue the shapes on the white pieces of paper. Pierce two holes on top of each piece. Put the little banners on the string. Finally, you can make your family proud over dinner with a beautiful ornament hanging on the wall.
This activity is special for younger children. They need to learn how to write and identify letters. Of course, there are pictures of the leaves on the paper. It seems simple. However, make the learning be more interactive. First of all, provide the worksheet and a pencil. If it is necessary, use an eraser as well when there are errors made. Secondly, ask the child to name each letter on the paper. Next, let them mention an object that uses that letter. After the child is familiar with and understands the words, they can start tracing the dots making the words one by one. Let them do it slowly to get a whole feeling of the letter’s form. Now, when the lines are visible, ask them to read the words out loud. You can hope the child remembers the words related to the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day.
Several kinds of printables are available to teach your children math. They are the clover fractions, number trace, addition, counting paper, and subtraction. Since these are the basic math skills, you can mix them all in the lesson. First of all, prepare the materials. They are the shamrock worksheets, coloring pencils, and pens. Secondly, start by coloring the shapes with green or yellow. It will make the materials more interesting. After that, explain the basic definition of the math concepts. You can start by explaining what fractions, addition, and such are. Finally, let your child do the work themselves. If they have any questions, assist them accordingly. For an idea to advance the lesson, give them a piece of paper and all the supplies. Ask them to draw or design the same type of math pictures. However, the calculations should be different. For instance, if they talk about fractions, instead of using a three-leaf clover, they can draw a four-leaf one instead and talk about one-quarter. Going further, ask them to mention things that have three or four parts in their form. Hence, they can broaden the scope of their learning.
