Happy March!  March is one of the most fun times of year because it brings the promise of spring, all things green and lucky!

I love using thematic topics as I mention almost every month. March is no different and there is so much to learn and celebrate this month!

Here are three of my favorite themes and topics for March:

*St. Patrick’s Day
*Women’s History

Favorite St. Patrick’s Day Resources

 

Next week I’ll share more about some of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day resources with you, but I just want to help you get those ideas flowing if you’re already looking to plan into March.

 

Three of my favorite activities to do near St. Patrick’s Day are…

  1. Design the “greenprints” for a leprechaun house (Area & Perimeter Project)
  2. Shamrock Shape Poem (Great for bulletin boards)
  3. St. Patrick’s Day Number Journal (Great for Pre-k – K)
  4. St. Patrick’s Day Color By Number Addition to 10 (perfect no prep printable!)

 

Check out this blog post for some more ideas in the meantime 🙂
