I can't believe March is already almost over! This month has been packed with some fun activities for my students so I thought I'd share some of them. One activity that I had them do were Leprechaun Limericks. My students always love writing these because they end up hilarious! Check out the kiddo below….
I had them write their final drafts on these shamrocks and they ended up making a super cute bulletin board.
To get in the spirit of March Madness, we also did a little Tournament of Books. I created a shared Google Doc that the kids could use to keep track the top favorite books that they have been reading this year. This made it very easy to choose our top 16 for the tournament. The bulletin board ended up being huge so I just took a picture of the left and right sides below.
As students finished the tournament books, we voted on their favorites! This ended up being a fun activity for our whole grade level. Which book ended up winning? Wonder, of course! I'm so glad we did this activity because many students ended up choosing books to read that they never would have picked up before! I really suggest doing this next March if you haven't!
I also have my students fill out their own March Madness brackets since we are having many more college discussions as we try to get them "college ready". I've been using this great product by Kristine Nannini and the kids LOVE it! The picture is linked to her store if you want to check it out.
The last March activity that I love having my students do is my March Math Task cards. This is a great St. Patrick's Day math activity and it can be used as a "Scoot" or as centers. They are in black and white so you can just print on colored card stock if you want, and you are set! It comes with 60 task cards that give a mixed review that is great for test prep! It also has a student recording sheet as well as an answer key. I have a 3rd grade version and a 4th grade version. I'm putting these both on sale for the next three days if you want to scoop it up for next year! Clicking on the product below will take you to it in my store.
Now I'm off to watch basketball! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
