Shamrock Shout-Outs

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 or tag me on InstagramFacebook, or Twitter!
