Happy March, teacher friends! Reading and writing simple sentences is an important skill that’s learned in kindergarten. Today I’m sharing a sentence writing activity with a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Your students are going to be so proud to write their very own sentences with these St. Patrick’s Day Sentence Writing Printables!
*Pair with our St. Patrick’s Day Centers & Activities!
St. Patrick’s Day Sentence Writing Printables
This activity is perfect for a whole group or small group writing lesson, or in a writing center. This easy-prep writing activity can be ready in an instant!
- 6 St. Patrick’s Day themed cards with pictures and words
- Word cards for students to build the sentence “I see a ___.”
- 2 writing pages for differentiation
How to Use:
For durability, we recommend laminating the St. Patrick’s Day picture cards and sentence pieces so you only have to print them once.
For the first part of this activity, students should build the sentence that they want to write.
Being able to build a sentence prior to writing it, demonstrates that students can read high frequency words and form a complete sentence. These are important prerequisites to writing a sentence on their own.
To build their sentence, students will use the word cards “I”, “see”, “a” and the punctuation card with a period on it.
They’ll put them in order to read “I see a ___.” Then they’ll choose which St. Patrick’s Day themed card they want to include in their sentence.
For example, if they choose the rainbow card, their sentence will read: “I see a rainbow.”

Once students have demonstrated that they can build a sentence, they’re ready to write it.
This free download includes two versions of the writing page to help meet your students needs.
One version includes the sentence starter “I see a”. In this version, students would complete the sentence by writing the themed word they chose.
The other version has blank handwriting lines for students to write the entire sentence.
Once students write their sentence, they’ll also draw a picture to go along with it. I like to let them use new, fun writing tools for these types of projects!
Being able to represent writing in drawings is imperative because it demonstrates that students understand what they wrote and that they can create a picture to correlate with their writing (and vice versa).
