Just curious, but what are all of you doing in your classrooms for March (theme wise)?
I know it's not original, but most classrooms I've been in and observed (and the one I'm currently student teaching in) is planning on doing a St.Patrick's day theme. I think it's just easy as there are many decorations and its a fun theme too
I am doing Fairy Tales, Dr. Seuss, some St. Patricks Day and at the end of March I will do Frogs. In the past I have done wind and weather. (lions and lambs)
Dr. Seuss (March 2 is Read Across America Day)
St. Patrick's Day

Obviously, in my high school math classes there is no theme.
But is there anything here that strikes the right chord?
wow, thanks all!
Cowboys (coincides with Houston Rodeo)
Texas (also Texas Public School Week)
Spring Break - no theme

Women's History Month
I'm doing women's history month and have 2 good resources for it.
famous women, voting rights
March Themes @ A to Z
We're finishing up our Celebration of Nations theme this month, with Dr. Seuss/reading kinda mixed in there. When we come back from Spring Break we'll start our "When I Grow Up" (occupations) theme.

Our community is bringing back many of the traditional activities that were once part of a week-long St. Patrick's Day celebration. There will be a Miss Shamrock pageant, a talent contest, a 5K run/walk, and a parade - among other activities! 5th graders at our school paint Irish-themed pictures, sayings, and greetings on glass windows in local businesses. We have a musical program at our school, an Irish Lad and Lassie (5th graders), and a best-dressed-Irish contest, too. Everyone tries to wear green all week, and we research facts and info about Ireland and the holiday itself.
Just took a peek at this and it's nice!
Is there also a Men's History Month? I would definitely have each student choose a woman AND a man and do a poster or short paper.
Ok, ok....Just call me blind...lol
