Anyone wanna share March activity ideas?
In like a lion and out like a lamb or vice versa.
Depends on the weather!
I am in the midst this month of FCAT testing the first week in march and the SAT for the last week of March. Any 'free' time is supposedly our cultural studies themes of inventors and foodgroups and nutrition...
Women's History Month
Saint Patricks Day
Weather- wind, kites, clouds
In like a lion, out like a lamb... I copy lions and lambs from
and record what each day was like. I use it on the calendar, or you could make a separate graph adding a lion or lamb each day. Then, look for patterns to see if the saying is really true.
There are tons of ideas to be found here:
Early on St Patrick's Day, sprinkle gold glitter down the hallway leading into your classroom. Sprinkle in a path, leaving some things in disarray. Wonder with the kids who did this and left behind a little gold. Celebrate with gold coins in a pot!

Last year the children each made a pot of gold. I cut out medium black pots from construction paper and wrote their names in a gold gel pen. The for the gold the children added corn pops and gold glitter. They loved it! I also turned the chairs upside down and made the room a little messy and left each child a gold piece of candy.
Here are some links to themes you could use in March before spring gets here...
Writing Idea -- "If I found a pot of gold, I would ..."
Craft for St. Pat's Day (K to Gr.2) - Cut out the middle portion of a paper plate for each student. Students trace and cut out 4 green clovers and 4 gold (yellow) coins out of construction paper. Staple clovers around edge of plate. Students glue gold coins on top of staples. Add a hanger to the back. Makes a nice St. Pat's Day wreath.
Separate names with a comma.
