Feeling lucky? I hope that your days are longer, the sun is hotter, and the days left in the school year are getting smaller. These March classroom inspiration ideas will have your students ready for testing, improving behavior, and getting ready for poetry month.
Does your classroom need a little management tweaking? This weekly form has been a life saver in helping me correct those behavior issues with kids who are just a little too comfortable now.
Getting Ready for Testing:
March is a review month for many of us. You are teaching those final standards while trying to review everything you taught the rest of the year. These simple tips will help make getting ready for testing more fun and you will find FREE posters for reminding students of important test taking strategies.
March A Poem Each Week
This FREE resource has questions and suggested activities for 4 March-themed poems. These are great fillers for read aloud and guided reading lessons.
Please NOTE: The poems for this resource are not included, but can easily be found online or in your school library.
March Poetry Literacy Center
This March Poetry Literacy Center has everything planned and ready for the entire month. Minimal prep, and March-themed borders to make for an easy wall display. The center has 4 original March poems. (Poems INCLUDED!) Poems cover the topics of rainbows, wind, shamrocks, and spring. Each poem comes with a close read, comprehension questions, a guided poetry writing lesson, a written response topic to connect the text to themselves and the world, and content area connections (wind tunnel creations, St.Patrick’s Day and Rainbow Research, and writing about hibernation and migration). Choice boards and task cards are included to help guide students through the lessons.
