March is right around the corner. By this time of the year, you may likely be feeling a llittle burned out. If you’re counting the days until Spring Break and looking for activities to get you through, I can help! In this post, I’ll share 10 March resources for kindergarten or first grade…
You can find all the resources below in my March Mega Bundle in my TPT Store. They are also sold separately.
March Family Homework
If you’re new around here, family homework is something I swear by. Every month, I send home a famiy project that includes a parent letter along with a craft or activity. The kids and their grownups work on the project at home. When they return it, you’ve got an instant bulletin board for the month! It’s a win-win for everyone!
March’s Family Homework is a St. Patrick’s Day themed resource called “Lucky to Be Me.” Students complete a four-leaf clover writing template listing four reasons why they are special or lucky. Bulletin board letters and a class book cover are included.
Read Across America Diversity Bulletin Board
While Read Across America formerly focused on all Dr. Seuss activities, the NEA and many educators are shifting the focus to diversity in literature. This Read Across America bulletin board includes two options of bulletin board letters and diverse character book reports. Students write about a diverse book they have read and draw their favorite part.
March Writing Journals
Writing for the entire month is prepped in minutes with my best selling monthly writing journals. Simply print and staple into a book, and complete one page a day. You can learn more about my writing journals HERE.
March Math Journals
In addition to my writing journals, monthly math journal are a must! These St. Patrick’s Day themed March journals focus on standards-based mathematical concepts. Complete a page or two per day. These are also perfect if you need sub plans in a pinch!
Women’s History Month Bulletin Board
Celebrate Women’s History Month in your classroom. Students create a flip book on any woman in history that you choose to research as a class. (The research is not included.) Bulletin board letters and a silouhette are included for your students to draw the woman you have researched.
St. Patrick’s Day How to Catch a Leprechaun Bulletin Board
St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite things to celebrate in Kindergarten. This How to Catch a Leprechaun resource includes a trapped leprechaun craft along with writing templates. Choose from a no prep one page format as shown in the photo above, or have your students create writing flip books. The new lettering is included to add the finishing touch to your display!
St. Patrick’s Day Rainbows and Pots of Gold
Above the trapped leprechaun flip books is another St. Patrick’s Day favorite. Create rainbows with a pot of gold writing prompt. The kids love making these, and I love reading their responses on what they would do if they found a pot of gold!
Shamrock Writing Templates
These print and go shamrock writing templates are perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day writing center. Choose from six differentiated options!
Spring 3D Tulips
Celebrate the first day of spring by having your kindergarten or first graders make 3D tulips. This is one of the most beautiful displays. It looks great in windows, in hallways, or on bulletin boards.
