Degrees of Adjectives - St. Patrick's Day theme

Hi guys! St. Patrick's Day will be here soon and I made these Shamrock Degrees of Adjectives worksheets (cut and stick matching) for the different examples of degrees of adjectives which can be used for interactive notebooks. There are blank shamrocks in both small and large sizes for students to write other sets of examples of adjectives for each of the three degrees. A black and white version is also included and each page here is to be printed on legal sized paper (8.5" x 14"). The classes of words chosen (in terms of their rules) span the levels from Grades 1 to 4 and are separated on different pages so that you only need to print out the sets that are suitable for your students' level.

I just want you to know that I put together a reading list of books that are all about St. Patrick's Day. It’s in this blog post here.

Valentine's Day Hearts and Cards

Valentine's Day activity for Compound words
I used the Valentine's hearts wherever I could this week.

I made it my students' mission not to leave these compound words all heartbroken. My zigzag scissors really came in handy.

These are the cards we made. Our school ordered dozens of these heart shaped lollipops so I had to rack my brain for days to come up with something cute. So here it is - 'A sweet heart for my sweetheart'.

This blue one above was my demo card. For some students I help them write up theirs. Each small group was given blank cards with the holes cut out to insert the lollipop, heart shape cut-outs, and lollipops.

You can make quick and easy Valentine's Day favors using emoji balls or any other party favors that your students like. Bag them up with ribbon and a tag and they will look beautiful!

Happy Valentine's Day!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
