For Valentine's Day, I created a door display, Reasons Why I Love My Class. My students absolutely ate it up!
I wanted to do a similar idea for March. Here is what I came up with:
I made a sign that said "Shamrock Shout Outs". Then I printed a shamrock template on several pieces of card stock and cut them out. I wrote various shout-outs for my class including:
Our reading stamina is improving.
Our behavior is improving.
We are so engaged in our Number the Stars Unit.
On March 1st, I hung up the Shamrock Shout Out sign and the first shamrock. Each day I add a new Shamrock.
My students were racing to the door to read what the new heart said.
I printed out all of my shamrocks ahead of time on colored card stock and will be hanging up a new one each day until St.Patrick's Day as a sort of countdown. I am even letting my students add shout-outs to our door as well.
I have made a freebie for you just in case you wanted to try this project out with your own students. You can download it here.
You can start a few days late and add shamrocks as you go, or put up the whole display on St. Patrick's Day instead.
If you do decide to do this project, I would love to see pictures! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tag me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!
