Community Project for Black History Month
For a community project, we are made a multicultural paper quilt of black and white photos. Our students made their hand prints with paint colors of their choice. Then we collected family photos from our families to create a paper blanket of pictures in where all the students families looked all the same color with black and white photos.
St Patricks Day Party
For the month of March 2021, the students will be having classrooms parties for St. Patrick’s Day on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. Students will be making snacks that reflect St Patrick’s Day in their classroom. It is traditional to wear GREEN on that day. They will be hunting over the rainbow for gold coins and meeting Mr. Leprechaun.
March is National Reading Month
Held annually on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss Day is a holiday that celebrates the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel – otherwise known by the pen name by which he authored children’s books: Dr. Seuss. During the 1990s, the National Education Association advocated for a day to celebrate reading all over the United States. In 1998, it started Read Across America and decided to hold it on the same day as Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
On Dr. Seuss Day it is customary to read a favorite book with your child. It could be one of Dr. Seuss’s books or it could be another children’s book author. The goal of the day is to engage children in reading and to get them to read on a regular basis.
