our Abba Father.

(Tune:  "Are You Sleeping, Brother John?")
Original Author Unknown.
"God the Father, God the Father,

God the Son, God the Son,

God the Holy Spirit, God the Holy Spirit,
(hold up three fingers)
Three in One, Three in One."

"The Story of St. Patrick's Day" by Patricia A. Pingry
The story begins with the traditional symbols of the day
that are often found in schoolrooms, such as shamrocks,
harps, and leprechauns. Then the narrative moves to a
short biography of Saint Patrick himself: as a shepherd, as a
missionary, and as a teacher. This colorfull boardbook ties
together the live of Patrick with the traditional images of
"St. Patrick's Day in the Morning" by Eve Bunting
Jamie seeks a way to prove that he is not too young to
march in the big St. Patrick's Day parade.
9577: Four Leaf Clover Stickers Four Leaf Clover Stickers
By SandyLion Sticker Designs

Use green sports drinks for beverages, and
try some green food like celery, green
grapes, green apples, and marshmallows
colored slightly with green food coloring.
Music & Movement:
Use either green scarves or tape green
crepe-paper streamers to the ends of short
wooden dowels.  Use creative movement to
dance a jig to a bouncy Irish tune.
Morning Circle:

Review the letter "s" by asking the children if they can repeat the name of the season
learned about in the previous lesson.  When they say "Spring," take out the "letter bag"
filled with objects that begin with "s."  Begin by giving clues, such as "I have something in
my letter bag that begins with 's.'  It's sometimes white, sometimes smelly, and it fits on my
bare foot."  The children might guess "sock" and they may even say "shoe," which would
also be acceptable.  Other "s" objects might include a "seven," "spider," "starfish," "sun,"
"snake," and "spoon."
Social Studies Center
Surround an area with posters of Ireland (can be obtained
from travel agencies.)  Provide pillows and chairs and a
table with lots of glossy books on Ireland.  Decorate area
with green and shamrocks, and have a few Irish instruments
placed there as well (tambourine, drum, and whistles if you
can ensure each child has her own, for sanitary reasons.)  
Play Celtic music softly in the background in this corner.

You can use this printable map of Ireland and let children
color it in using different shades of green.  Let them color
the ocean surrounding too!

Let children learn the colors of the Ireland Flag with this
printable activity.  They can also color in the letters of the
words of the name Ireland.

Have a "Green" center
Place lots of green natural objects on a table for the children
to examine.  Use pine needles, leaves, clover, greenish-hued
rocks, flower stems, broccoli, swatches of green fabric made
of natural fibers, etc.  Lay out several magnifying glasses and
make sure the table is well-lit.
Little Green People
Blow up a green balloon for each child and sit the balloons in
bowls or shallow dishes so they sit upright.  Provide a
container of shaving foam dyed green with food coloring for
each child.  Let the children put "hair" and "faces" on their
balloons with the shaving foam.  The balloons will look like
little green people.  Note: This activity is messy.  Protect your
learning area and the children's clothing as needed.
Read: "St. Patrick's Day in the Morning" by Eve Bunting
Put on some Irish music on in the background while you read
Eve Bunting's St. Patrick's Day in the Morning.  (If possible, use
the audio recording of this book along with showing the
illustrations.  It's narrated in an Irish accent, and will add a
special touch to your St. Patrick's Day celebrations.)

Read: "The Story of St. Patrick's Day" by Patricia A. Pingry
Tell the children today's Bible lesson is about yet another "s"
word..."shamrock."  Ask the children if they know what a
shamrock is.  Take one out and show them.  Explain that they
might have seen something similar in their yard called clover.  
Ask them how many leaves a shamrock has.  Ask them what
color it is.  Ask them if they remember what holiday is coming
soon that is all about shamrocks and the color green.
Explain that St. Patrick's Day is a very old holiday that celebrates a famous Irish religious
person.  Tell the children, "St. Patrick used the shamrock to show people about God.  He said
it can help us remember that God is in three persons:  God the Father, God the Son (Jesus,)
and God the Holy Spirit.  This makes three important parts of one wonderful God. When you
look at the shamrock or 3-leaf clover, you can remember that God our Father in Heaven sent
His son Jesus Christ to save us from our sin, and then the Holy Spirit was sent to us to comfort
us and guide us until Jesus comes back again.  Three wonderful things about our Heavenly

(Note for parents and teachers:  As with most of our holidays, St. Patrick's Day has roots in Paganism.  
For this reason this lesson will not focus on leprechauns, etc.  The shamrock itself was originally used
by druids for the spiritual aspect of the triad.  However, St. Patrick took this ancient symbol and used it
as a means of explaining Christianity to the pagans.)   
S is for Saved
This is a Bible Coloring
Page you can use to talk
with children about what
it means to be saved.
Tissue Paper Shamrocks
Shamrock Template
Provide a cut-out shamrock for each child made from white construction or sketch
paper.  Give each child several shades of green tissue and crepe paper, cut into small
squares (make sure these are the type that bleed color when wet.)   Instruct the
children to place the squares of green paper randomly on their shamrock

Provide either spray bottles filled with water for each child, or a small bowl of water
and soft paintbrush for each child.  Let the children coat their creations with water.  
After the water has begun to dry out a bit, carefully peel off the paper to reveal the
lovely green watercolors beneath.
Under the Glass
Go outside and find "shamrocks" from clumps
of clover in the grass.  Bring them inside and
press them under glass (use an old picture
frame.)  Are there any with four leaves?  Five?
