More Shamrocks: Categories and Synonyms

Happy March, blog friends!

The month of St. Patrick's Day and March Madness. I'll be cheering for the Indiana Hoosiers in the NCAA tourney, so I thought it was time to share my Hoosier spirit with a banner change! And also time to share a few more shamrocks - one for sale and one for free!

First up is Shamrock Categories, which is available for purchase in my TpT store:

The same shamrocks as the Word Families activity, 
but this time they've turned categorical!

It's aligned to this Common Core standard:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.5a: Sort words into categories (e.g., colors, clothing) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent.

Here are the Shamrock Templates to cut out:

And the leaves to cut out and match with
their shamrock category:

 And a recording sheet for added reinforcement. 

Targets: pets, colors, seasons, punctuation marks, furniture, letters, insects, writing utensils, things you can read, clothing, and flowers

I had a group last Monday work on the Shamrock Categories activity and then they filled out this recording sheet today. I was excited how well they recalled the items we had gone over the week before!

And next up, Shamrock Synonyms. I'm posting this one up as a freebie. 
Same concept, new targets.
Check it out here!

Hope you enjoy the shamrocks in your speech rooms and come visit again soon!
