Okay well today is St. Patrick’s day, March 17th. So typically we watch grandpa March in the NYC St. Patty’s day parade but this year everything is cancelled. However I had other activities planned for the day prior to the COVID-19 so I’m going to link all the worksheets, documentaries and books below as well as the recipes, which will be posted on http://www.matthewskitchennyc.com but linked below as we are making Irish soda bread and Corn beef.
We started with making roll out sugar cookies (chocolate version this time) and using our St Patrick’s day cookie cutters then having fun decorating them with royal icing.
Next up we through together our corn beef dinner in the crockpot.
Then we began our school day, no worries breakfast is always eaten before we do any work at all. We began talking about Ireland. We look at the flag, look at what it is known for (buildings, food, language) and watch a few short videos about the country, which are linked below.
Then we begin with our actual worksheets. Since we switched curriculums from online to workbooks, I typically have him do a few pages in one of the 4 we have based on subject but because today is a holiday I printed out fun worksheets to use. See below for links (there are more on my Pinterest board for various ages) follow for more ideas
With some of our worksheets done, we moved on to crafts. M decided to paint rainbows.
Then of course we had to spend some time on Minecraft so we explored 2 Irish based maps then I challenged him to be inspired by Ireland and show me his creation. Both Irish worlds will be on our YouTube channel so check it out (https://www.youtube.com/user/Allyneznamy)
