March 17th, AKA St. Patrick’s Day, is right around the corner. My students absolutely love when things become green and shamrocks abound. Part of the fun of holidays like St. Patrick’s Day is the ability to some novelty to the daily schedule by adding some fun songs, changing the decoration and putting the same old thing on a piece of paper in a different shape.
Here are my 5 favorite St. Patrick’s Day songs!
1. I’m a Little Leprechaun by The Kiboomers
I recently discovered The Kiboomers while I was looking for Valentine’s Day songs. I was very happy they had St. Patrick’s Day songs too! The best thing about this song is that it is sung to the tune of I’m a Little Teapot.
2. G-R-E-E-N by The Kiboomers
No, I am not paid by The Kiboomers to highlight their music– I just really like them! This one is great because it’s not just a fun and catchy tune. It also provides a great way for students to remember how to spell the word green.
3. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by Jack Hartmann
This is an engaging counting song set to a St. Patrick’s Day theme. Students will practice counting by 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s.
4. St. Patrick’s Day Dance and Freeze by Jack Hartmann
My students LOVE these Dance & Freeze videos! I find them a great way to practice controlling our bodies!
5. St. Patrick’s Day for Kids by Jus Ran
This video tells the story of St. Patrick- from being captured by pirates to the shamrock as a symbol of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. I like the Irish music and the graphics are child friendly. Since it mentions religion, make sure you preview the video to fit your schools culture.
