St. Patrick’s Day Centers

It’s almost St. PAtrick’s Day so we’re celebrating with some fun, easy to prep, DIY St. Patrick’s Day centers!

St. Patrick’s Day Sight Words

For this differentiated sight word center, we used our ESGI assessment data to target our most missed sight words.

You will need:

foam shamrocks (Dollar Tree)

green glass gems (Dollar Tree)


Use a Sharpie to write the sight word on the shamrock.  Then write the letters to spell the sight word on the gems.  Write 1 letter per gem.  Students read the word, spell or build the sight word with the gems and write the sight word!

St. Patrick’s Day Addition

This St. Patrick’s Day center can be modified for many skills.  You can do addition, subtraction and counting!

You will need:

Plastic cauldrons (Wal-Mart)

Addition cards

Dot stickers (Amazon)


First, I wrote numbers 1-10 on green dot stickers.  Then I placed the stickers on the cauldrons.  I used stickers so we can the stickers and re-use the cauldrons.  Students choose an equation card, solve the equation and sort the card into the correct cauldron.  They can then write the equation and answer on the recording sheet!

You can also do subtraction equations.

To make a counting center, label the cauldrons to 20.  Students can put the correct number of gold coins in the pot!
