Fun activities for teaching St. Patrick's Day vocabulary Four no-prep resources you'll want to use year after year to incorporate St. Patrick's Day vocabulary into your Spanish class!
St Patrick's Day Word Wall I love using word walls in my classroom to build vocabulary and — beautifully decorate my bulletin board! Students are really drawn to the bright images and new words. This St. Patrick's Day Word Wall has 21 Irish themed vocabulary words to give students an instant visual resource.
St. Patrick's Day Bingo Everyone loves bingo! This St. Patrick's Day Bingo includes 16 vocabulary words (that correspond to the word wall), 40 bingo cards (large & small versions) and a set of calling cards. Use the cards to call words out in Spanish as students search for the correct image. There are so many ways to play! You can go for the traditional 4 in a row, 4 corners, the 4 middle squares, an X, all squares around the perimeter. Simple & easy translation game to pull out at a moment's notice or for the last few minutes of class. Fun to use in small groups or stations too! Also available in English.
St. Patrick's Day word search Word Searches are a fun & easy, low stress activity. Not only are they FUN — they improve word recognition, spelling and increase vocabulary. Students don't even realize they're learning! This St. Patrick's Day Word Search has 18 holiday words to define & find. Great activity to have on hand for warm ups, fast finishers, stations, or no-prep substitute lesson plans. My students beg for word searches!
St. Patrick's Day POSTER I love using posters to motivate and inspire students. I do believe that "the harder you work, the more luck you have." I want my students to believe it too. Promote that hard work ethic with this More Work, More Luck poster! Build good character traits and decorate your Spanish, English or dual language classroom. Includes the English version!
