I did this craftivity two ways, both were equally adorable! Here's how:
To make the initial hat:
1. Fold the paper in half
2. Cut down the side that isn't folded into the shape of the hat that you want
3. Cut out a black strip for the length of the hat
4. Cut out a yellow box, and get rid of the center
I cut out yellow circles, or "gold coins", and wrote the target phoneme/word/sentence on them. The activity was simple, fill your hat with coins by saying your sound!
After cutting out a white square, write the vocabulary words related to St. Patrick's Day on top. If you're students are able to write, draw some lines on the bottom! Have students make their own vocabulary hats! After writing (or verbally explaining) their word, have students draw a picture depicting their definition.
After, we used glitter glue to glam up our hats! A super fun activity!
