Home Students Classroom Pages Kindergarten - Mrs. Brown March

March

March 'comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb! Spring weather begins and March is known as a windy month. Our class will experiment with the wind outside and in the class with varied objects of weight and size and strengths of wind! It is especially exciting on a windy, blustery day!Smile

Force, Motion and Gravity is the science topic for the month. The students will explore ramps, speed, and distance with varied size and weight of vehicles. A fun experiment is planned with Mr. Egg as he travels down the ramp..what will happen and what are the results? Stay tuned for results!! A bowling contest is also a lesson for force and motion!

Dr. Seuss is celebrated throughout the month reading his whimsical tales and rhymes. Each student will become an author and illustrator creating a rhyming book. This introduces the 'word families' and provides practice with sentences and creativity!

Addition and Subtraction is the math unit. We begin with addition and practice with hands on activites up to 10 for a couple weeks followed by subtration. Many hands on acitivites and games help to reinforce skills.  IXL is suggested to practice at home!

We prepare for the Easter celebration each day as we learn and practice the teachings of Jesus. We join together as a school each Friday and participate in the Stations of the Cross during Lent. The character trait is the Lamb who represent "Forgiveness'. Children young and innocent in their hearts forgive and move forward with friends. It is an important trait to practice throughout life.

St. Patrick's Day is March 17th. The school celebrates on Friday, March 16th wearing green and white and beginning the day with mass. Our class with enjoy a green snack and learn to dance the 'jig'!

Easter is Sunday April 1st. No school on Good Friday or Monday, April 2nd. May you enjoy this joyous Holiday with Family and Friends.
