The month of March is filled with special days and I have some awesome March Activities for early learners that I know both you and your students will love!
READ ACROSS AMERICA
Read Across America Day is celebrated on March 2nd and I know you are going to want to have some special activities planned for your class! Here are a few suggestions:
- Guest Readers
- Character Dress Up
- Character Dress Up Parade
- Author Study
- Literacy Snacks
No matter what activities you choose, your students will reinforce their love for books and reading!
ST. PATRICK’S DAY
Yes, leprechaun fun will soon be upon us and I have several St. Patrick’s Day activities that will keep your students engaged and happy!
This Shamrock Craft is actually three activities in one resource! First, your students can make the cute little Shamrock Craft. As I’ve mentioned before, doing crafts in the classroom provide great practice with fine motor skills, following directions and creativity! To read that blog post, click HERE!
Next, you can use the included shamrock shape to do some fun MARBLE PAINTING! Did you know that instead of marbles you can use GOLF BALLS? Yep, that right! They paint a little thicker line and are a safer alternative to marbles because of their size.
The third activity you can do with this resource is great for fine motor practice. One of the shamrocks included has small black dots already printed on it. Your students can take glue and practice their “one dot, not a lot” routine when using glue. After placing one dot of glue on each black dot, they can scrunch up small squares of green tissue paper and place them on the dots. If you don’t want to use tissue paper, you can also punch out small green circles with a hole puncher and they can place them on the glue dots as well. This is not only great for fine motor practice but eye-hand coordination too!
POT OF GOLD & RAINBOWS
Aren’t we all looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Well, you’ve found it with this adorable Pot of Gold Craft. It will look great on a bulletin board, you can pair it with a writing assignment with older students or as a simple window or door display! Check it out HERE!
ROY G BIV
How can you teach about rainbows and not mention our favorite rainbow friend, ROY G BIV? Your students will enjoy making their very own ROY G BIV with his AMAZING rainbow hair!
