With all the excitement, I forgot that I wanted to share with you some ideas for March. "Sing Into Spring" by Jack Hartmann is really great for calendar time because it talks about how winter will end and spring will begin. "The Leprechaun Song" by Newbridge Songs For Learning is sort of a little story that the kids can act out as they're singing the song. Another cool song that I just found yesterday on iTunes is "The Leprechaun" by Joe Guida the Singing School Bus Driver. I like this one because it has a very Irish folk sound to it.
I have really been trying to make calendar time more exciting for my kids by changing the numbers every month. Here is a giveaway that you can use in your calendar kit, or as a number sequencing game in Math Center:
Calendar Numbers in Shamrocks for March
|"The Story of the Leprechaun" by Katherine Tegen|
I would love to know which books you all use in the month of March. Please leave a comment below.
