St. Patrick's Potato Craftivity

I'm home today with a sick kiddo. Nothing brings out the mommy in me like high fevers and vomiting. I've been flying solo since my hubbie has been out of town but thankfully he gets home in 4 hours {not that I'm counting or anything.}  :-)

Anywoo, I finally had time to get this St. Patrick's craftivity done!
My teammate Toni shared this craft with me a few years ago. I told her last year she really needed to put her cute stuff up on TpT but she is not all that comfortable with the computer. So this year we decided to work together.

 The kids get so excited by the shamrock sticker nose and orange freckles! It cracks me up when 30 potatoes start dancing around when they are done. :-)
As we transition to the Common Core we are making sure everything we do is aligned.
So, I created a few different reading response sheets to use after reading Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato by Tomie DePaola.


This packet includes:
*St. Patrick's Potato craft templates & directions
*Sequencing cut and glue RL1.7
*Story Structure RL1.3
*Describe the character Jamie O'Rourke RL1.7
*Beginning, Middle, End RL1.2
*All answer keys

As usual, I will give a FREE packet to a lucky loyal follower.  Enter below and I will pick a winner Friday.  Click {HERE} to go check it out in my store. Any blog comments saying how cute it is I will be sure to share with Toni!

  15. Cute!! :)

    I do hope your little one is feeling better---I know that I hate when my kids are sick (but sometimes it's the only time I can cuddle with my son--he thinks he's getting too big) :(
