WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH?
Mrs. G. & Mrs. Obaker
We will begin the month by bringing in March like a lion and hope that it goes out like a lamb! Using our circle sponges, we will paint a lamb’s wool and using a fork, we will paint a lion’s mane. Then we will use marshmallow and noodles to create wool and manes for the baking day! In preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, we will make shamrocks by marble painting and bake shamrock biscuits. Then we will discuss the colors of the rainbow to make our Pot of Gold. Finally, Spring will be in the air in our room with eggs, chicks, and bunnies!
Mrs. Brown & Mrs. Musci
This month starts with the end of our community helpers unit. We’ll be learning about doctors, dentists, and veterinarians. To celebrate the end of this unit, we’re having a career day dress-up on Friday, March 4. Please see the Class Tag announcement for more details. We’ll move right from veterinarians and a pretend animal hospital into our pets unit. We’ll be discussing pet care and grooming with a fun sensory experience, as well as talking about unusual pets. Look for details on ClassTag about sharing photos of your child’s pets and stuffed animal day. After that, we’ll celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with rainbow and color science. At the end of the month, we’ll welcome the official start to spring with related weather and flowers and plants fun!
Mrs. Bosher & Mrs. Pawlak
We cannot believe March is here already. We have been having so much fun learning about Community Helpers and all the fun jobs that they do! Our first week of March will be spent wrapping up the unit and putting our own spin on Career Day. Please send your child to school on Friday, March 11th, dressed in a way that represents something they would like to be when they grow-up. The possibilities are endless!
We will regroup the following week with a unit on all things green and lucky to prepare for St. Patrick’s Day. Then we will learn about the signs of spring and begin a unit on plants. Your children will learn about the parts of a plant and the life cycle of plants. They will also learn about what plants need to grow. The class will get to practice delayed gratification while we wait for our own plants to grow. So exciting!!
Mrs. Pullias & Mrs. Joyce
March will be a fun and busy month for our class. We will begin by using our counting circles to count down and celebrate the first day of Spring! We will then introduce our unit on The Dentist and Dental Health. We will open “The Dulaney Day Dentist Office” and even conduct an experiment to show why it is so important to brush our teeth! Later in the month we will begin our Transportation unit which is always a favorite especially when we have our transportation show and tell day! Our Amazing Alphabet Adventure will continue with the letters P, Q, R, and S and of course we will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a wee bit of leprechaun magic! Happy [almost] Spring everyone!!
Mrs. Howe & Mrs. Powell
March is here! This year has really been moving very fast despite the craziness. The first week of March brings us Dr. Suess’ birthday and we will be reading many of his books during the week. March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb and during the second week of March we will be concentrating on weather. We will end the month with learning about our senses and healthy habits and food and nutrition. It should be an exciting month. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
We will have picture day this year! Irvin Simon has been taking school pictures since the fall of last year and follows every safety precaution as recommended. The MW 2s and 3s classes will be taken on Monday, March 28th and the TTH 2s and 4s classes will be on Tuesday, March 29th.
