Pot of Gold Speech Rainbows

make a rainbow and pot of gold with speech words

 Today's St. Patrick's Day activity was all about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

The idea for these comes from Scholastic. Have you signed up for their monthly Teacher Updates? Do it! They send out an email once a month with a ton of activity ideas, articles, and teaching ideas for that season. Sign up here! (scroll to the bottom of the page)

I had the paper plates, clouds, coins, and black pots cut out and ready to go. While students were coloring their rainbows, we practiced target words, or listened to words through auditory bombardment.

Then we wrote target words or glued pictures to the coins and assembled the whole thing together. For my language students we practiced making sentences with our words or wrote words in different categories. White crayon worked well to write names on the black pot. My students were so excited to take them home!

Orange and Purple for me!
