Holidays are so much fun to celebrate in the classroom. Whether a significant holiday or a smaller holiday, the event is extra special for students.

Tips for Successful Class Party Centers
Simply put, students will have even more energy when there is a special event. Therefore, these days require a bit more planning. Luckily, the tips below will help ensure centers go smoothly!
Detailed Planning: While a framework for a lesson works most days, it may not during a special celebration. Honestly, these days require structure and organization. Additionally, creating crafts requires more supplies than paper and pencils. While detailed planning takes time, it will be time well spent when students focus all day.
Organization: When using class party centers, the organization will be essential. Due to student excitement, it will be vital to have each center ready to go before students arrive. If teachers are still gathering materials together, students may start misbehaving. Luckily, the St. Patrick’s Day Activity Bundle contains many simple, engaging centers to use during a party! There are Color by Code activities, directed drawings, and Q-tip painting to ensure students have a blast!
Independent Work: Not every party needs to have group projects. Honestly, a party can still be calming independent work. Thus, the St. Patrick’s Day Activity Bundle contains DIY activities. This means that students can still talk to each other while working on their activities. Or, students can have quiet time throughout the day. Thankfully, all six activities allow teachers to have the choice on the completion format. From the snap cubes to the letter hunt peek-a-boo, this party will be one students always remember.
