March ‘comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb! Spring weather begins and March is known as a windy month. Our class will experiment with the wind outside and in the class with different size fans and strengths of wind and a variety of objects of weight and size. It is especially exciting on a windy, blustery day!
Dr. Seuss is celebrated throughout the month reading his whimsical tales and rhymes. Each student will become an author and illustrator creating a rhyming book using word families. It provides practice with punctuation and sentence writing.
Addition and Subtraction is the math unit. We begin with addition and practice with hands on activities up to 10 followed by subtraction. Hands on games and activities help to reinforce skills. IXL is also suggested to practice at home.
Throughout the month we prepare for Easter as we continue to learn and practice the teachings of Jesus. The character trait is the Lamb who represents ‘Forgiveness’. It teaches to say sorry and accept apologies from others and forgive them.
The school celebrates the Feast Day of St. Patrick on Wednesday, March 17th. It is a dress down day to wear green. Our class will have fun listening to Irish music and dancing the jig!
