The Legend of the Lion and the Lamb


There is an old legend of the lion and the lamb.  If the weather comes in on March 1st like a lion, then it is said to go out like a lamb.  Or, if it comes in like a lamb, then it will go out like a lion! 



Patterns and directions are given in PDF files to make this hanging back-to-back lion and lamb project.


 Lion and Lamb Graph


Make a graph to predict if March will come in like a lion or a lamb!  A banner and all of the pieces are provided in PDF files to complete this activity.

Two different methods are given to track the lion and lamb days with your students for the month of March.



Celebrate Dr. Seuss' Birthday

 with Read Across America!


March 2nd is the official "Read Across America" Day to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday.  There are ideas and activities to help celebrate the day!


Cat in the Hat


Making a student hat for "Cat in the Hat" is a great way to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day!  Pattern and directions are given in a PDF file to make these fun hats.


Make a bow tie with your students to wear with the hat shown above.  Pattern and directions are given in an easy to copy PDF file.


Cat in the Hat Rhyming Words

Practice rhyming words.  Students cut out the matching rhyming words and also get to add the cat's face and stripes!  This is a great way to practice reading and matching rhyming words.


Our Favorite Dr. Seuss Books Writing

For "Read Across America" we read lots of Dr. Seuss books.  Children always have their favorites and this is a great way to fit writing into the curriculum.  There is a story writing blank paper with a matching book cover to go with the stories to add to your classroom library.  I like to laminate the book cover to use for several years!  There is also a parent letter that you can send home asking children to bring in Dr. Seuss materials such as books, games, videos, etc. 



 Children match the number to the number word with this fun activity for "One Fish, Two Fish.  Great for reading and math!

 St. Patrick's Day Vests

Patterns and directions are given for making St. Patrick's Day vests.  A letter to the parents is also included to help collect "green" things to decorate the vests.  


St. Patrick's Day Hats


Patterns and directions for the headband/hat are given in PDF files.





Green Food Day!


We also celebrate the day with a green snack.  I have provided a parent letter asking for contributions.  It's amazing the variety of green foods the children bring.  It's fun to see all of the GREEN!!  I send the letter home with the children a week or so before St. Patrick's Day.



Plan a fun day with a leprechaun visiting your classroom!  Lots of fun ideas, tips and activities to make St. Patrick's Day memorable for all. 




Ideas, directions and letters for the leprechaun visit are provided in PDF files.  Kids have great fun looking for the leprechaun!


Leprechaun Stories

After reading different leprechaun stories, it is fun to practice writing skills with our own leprechaun trick stories.  Blank story paper and graphics to put your students' faces on the leprechaun.  These are great to save for end of the year memory books, too!   


A Lucky Charms graph activity with worksheet for students to complete using the cereal. 






Shamrock Patterns



Two different sizes of shamrocks are given.  The larger ones can be used to decorate bulletin boards, art, etc.  The small ones are great to copy on different colors of paper and use for making math patterns.  These can be copied in different colors and used for making math pattern strips.  They make great borders in memory books, too.




"I'm Lucky" Story



Students write why they think they are lucky.  The story blank is provided and comes with a book cover to make a class book. 






Make a Rainbow!




This is a fun rainbow to make using rice, macaroni or coloring with crayon.  It's also a great way to reinforce the color words and maybe do a short unit on science, weather or light!  PDF files for making the rainbow are given in the March Ideas package.

Rainbow Blizzard


When everyone is tired of winter and ready for spring---make a rainbow blizzard.  There is a cute poem to go along with the colorful snowflakes and a banner to make your own bulletin board!




Bingo is a great game to play for teaching many different skills.  I have included two different Bingo games in the March Ideas package.


1.  Math Bingo for recognizing and reading numbers from 7-30.  I have always found that children have difficulty recognizing the "teen" numbers.  This provides extra practice in a fun way!  

2.  High Frequency Word Bingo for recognizing the 24 most frequently used words.  I have used The Dolch Word list for this Bingo game.  However, there is a blank grid provided for you to be able to make your own list of words if your district does not use the Dolch Word list. 

3.   There are other ideas given for playing Bingo to reinforce other Kindergarten skills --- included on most of the list of standards required for Kindergarten!
