Writing prompts for March

1-2-3 Come Do Some Saint Paddy's Day Activities With Me   

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, so I've been busy designing a few things for that week.  Today's blog features 4 of my favorites, plus the featured FREEBIE of the day.  

St. Patrick's Day activities, St. Patrick's Day crafts, shamrock glyph, march glyph, Venn Friends, Venn diagrams, st patricks day puzzles, st patricks day games, st patricks day bulletin boards, writing prompts for March First up is the quick, easy and fun "Pot Of Goals" writing prompt craftivity.    Students complete the "goal" coin sentence prompts.

Coin Prompts: "I want to...", "I want to be...", "I want to go...", "I want to learn...", "I want to see...", "I want to read..."

Younger kiddos can dictate a one-word response, while older students also include a reason why
So that you can program your own, I've also included a set of blank coins.

Mount on rainbow-colored construction paper, and hang in an arch in rainbow-color order, on a large wall. 
Your title can be: "A Rainbow Of Wonderful Writing"

St. Patrick's Day activities, St. Patrick's Day crafts, shamrock glyph, march glyph, Venn Friends, Venn diagrams, st patricks day puzzles, st patricks day games, st patricks day bulletin boards, writing prompts for March Next is a shamrock glyph, which is a super-fun little something to do on St. Paddy's Day, or whenever... 

No matter what grade I taught, my students LOVED making glyphs.  They are a quick, easy and interesting way to practice and assess listening and following directions.

Since this is one of my report card standards, glyphs also provide a "hard copy" to use as proof that a child does or doesn't, and are also an interesting way to get to know your students; plus completed projects make an adorable bulletin board, as each one will be different!

To practice data collection & analysis, as well as process of elimination, have students pick a partner to "interview", to help them figure out which glyph is their partner's.  I've included a data collection worksheet for this, challenging them to try and solve the "mystery" with the least amount of questions.

I've also included 6, whole-group graphing extensions, to practice another math standard. 

St. Patrick's Day activities, St. Patrick's Day crafts, shamrock glyph, march glyph, Venn Friends, Venn diagrams, st patricks day puzzles, st patricks day games, st patricks day bulletin boards, writing prompts for March A Shamrock Venn Friend  is also a super-fun way to get to know your students better.  These too make an adorable bulletin board for March, and are a visual way to practice "comparison-contrast" writing.  

Introduce the lesson with the "What's a Venn diagram?" poster, then have children partner up.

To help them do a thorough job completing their Venn diagram and jump start the writing process, I've included a list of 40 questions that they can choose from to discuss with their partner.

St. Patrick's Day activities, St. Patrick's Day crafts, shamrock glyph, march glyph, Venn Friends, Venn diagrams, st patricks day puzzles, st patricks day games, st patricks day bulletin boards, writing prompts for March Each student does their own "different" portion of their shamrock. Afterwards, the two-some glues their shamrock to the “pot of gold”, and takes turns filling in the “same” section oval, which is then glued to the top of the pot.

For that finishing touch, students color their leprechaun, add a school photograph on the leprechaun’s face, then glue it to their side of the Venn diagram.

For added fun, and to practice another standard that mixes math with literacy, I’ve also included a graphing extension.

To break things down, the packet focuses on 100 CVC words that begin with the letters "L is for leprechaun"; "M is for March"; "P is for Patrick", and "S is for shamrock.”

St. Patrick's Day activities, St. Patrick's Day crafts, shamrock glyph, march glyph, Venn Friends, Venn diagrams, st patricks day puzzles, st patricks day games, st patricks day bulletin boards, writing prompts for March The packet includes:
* A Celtic shamrock craftivity that reinforces CVC words beginning with the letter S

St. Patrick's Day activities, St. Patrick's Day crafts, shamrock glyph, march glyph, Venn Friends, Venn diagrams, st patricks day puzzles, st patricks day games, st patricks day bulletin boards, writing prompts for March Today's FREEBIE also has a St. Paddy's Day theme. It's a set of 16 number "strip" puzzles, which help practice sequencing numbers from 1-10, counting backwards from 10-1, plus skip counting by 10s to 100.

I've included full-color puzzles to use in a center, as well as some black and white ones, so that kiddos can make their own. They are vertical as well as horizontal.

8 pages

After reading Dr. Seuss's book, What Was I Scared Of?  (Also found in The Sneetches) discuss what kinds of things people are afraid of and how they can overcome their fears. 

10 pages.

After reading Dr. Seuss's If I Ran The Circus, have students transition to either of these interesting writing prompts.  One is a class book.  Choose which writing prompt you want your students to do.  They complete their page and illustrate it.  Collect and collate the pages.  Read your class book aloud by having each student share the page that they wrote.

5 pages.

This is a take off of Dr. Seuss's book On Beyond Zebra, which is about all of the letters that come after Z. In the beginning of the story, Cornelius is bragging that he knows all of the letters from A to Z.  He's shocked to find out that there are more!

7 pages.

After reading Dr. Seuss's ABC book, create a silly, creature-filled alphabet book of your own.  Print and trim the mini letter tiles.  Toss them into a Seuss hat.  Students choose one, glue it to their page and think of a creature that starts with that letter. 

1-2-3 Come Do S'more Seuss Activities With Me

To help get the wiggles out after story hour, we sang songs.  Singing lightened up the day and taught a variety of skills. 

seuss songs, seuss games, seuss writing prompts, seuss class made books, seuss alphabet book, seuss alphabet cards, writing prompts for march, march writing prompts, writing prompts for dr seuss, dr seuss activities, common core seussWith that in mind, I thought other teachers might be doing the same thing and looking for something with a Seuss theme, so I used the tune to B-I-N-G-O and substituted the letters with Seuss. 

I've included letter cards, so that you can put them on your flannel or white board and then take one down as you sing each verse. (This is also a teachable moment for subtraction.)

As I was singing, to make sure of the beat, my husband walked in and started singing a goofy little ditty to the tune of Brother John, so of course I had that song stuck in my head and wrote a second Seuss song.   Click on the link to view/download Some Seuss Songs.

I'm working on a list of characters and nonsense words in each book, (a massive under taking, so who knows when I'll finish!) To do so, I'm slowly reading all of the Seuss books that I have in my vast collection (almost 50). 

seuss songs, seuss games, on beyond zebra activities, dr. seuss's abc book activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss class made books, seuss alphabet book, seuss alphabet cards, writing prompts for march, march writing prompts, writing prompts for dr seuss, dr seuss activities, common core seussSince I'm always multi-tasking, I jotted down writing prompts that popped into my head while reading.  Here are a few that I've finished.  These make wonderful class books, and there's more to come, so stay tuned!


seuss songs, seuss games, on beyond zebra activities, dr. seuss's abc book activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss class made books, seuss alphabet book, seuss alphabet cards, writing prompts for march, march writing prompts, writing prompts for dr seuss, dr seuss activities, common core seussFirst, hot off the press, is a class book entitled: Feature Creatures Plus One Teacher.

This is a different way to have students practice the alphabet, along with their writing skills, and is an interesting transition after you read Dr. Seuss's Alphabet book.  

Make a copy of the letter tiles; toss them into a Seuss hat and have students  pick a letter card and glue it to their page.

seuss songs, seuss games, on beyond zebra activities, dr. seuss's abc book activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss class made books, seuss alphabet book, seuss alphabet cards, writing prompts for march, march writing prompts, writing prompts for dr seuss, dr seuss activities, common core seussChildren write their upper and lowercase letter on the blank and then think up a creature that starts with that letter, afterwards drawing a picture underneath.  This should NOT be a real creature like Zz is for Zebra. 

Students need to use their imagination and think up a silly creature just like Dr. Seuss does: "Ff Four fluffy feathers on a fiffer-feffer-feff." Pre-K kids can stop there, but encourage older students to write a few sentences. 

Challenge them to use rhyming words, as well as some tongue-twisting alliteration, to make things more “Seussical."

For example, Zz is for a Zigglewag who likes to play wiggle tag.  He eats zinnias, zingles and zag, all of which make me personally gag.  or Bb is for Boomtoot, who's from Bangladoot and likes to eat fruit, especially bapples, belon and bloot.  

I've included Suess-font letter cards, student and teacher writing pages, plus a sample.  Click on the link to view/download the Feature Creatures Plus One Teacher class book.

This is a take off of Dr. Seuss's book On Beyond Zebra, which is about all of the letters that come after  Z. In the beginning of the story, Cornelius is bragging that he knows all of the letters from A to Z. 

seuss songs, seuss games, on beyond zebra activities, dr. seuss's abc book activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss class made books, seuss alphabet book, seuss alphabet cards, writing prompts for march, march writing prompts, writing prompts for dr seuss, dr seuss activities, common core seussHe's shocked to find out that there are more!   "Then he almost fell flat on his face on the floor, when I picked up some chalk and drew one letter more. A letter he never had dreamed of before..."  like the letter Snee, which is for "...sneedle, a terrible kind of ferocious mos-keedle.  Whose hum-dinger stinger is as sharp as a needle. "

All of these goofy letters have a name and symbol.   I thought it would be fun to make a class book of all of the pretend letters that might possibly come before the letter A

The packet includes a class book with two writing prompts to choose from, as well as a 3D cylinder "craftivity."

Students color and cut out their circus tent and then attach their completed writing prompt paper to either side, so that they can bend it into a cylinder shape.

For that finishing touch, children add a toothpick flag, and then choose either a clown or a ringmaster to color and glue their photo on top of that face. 

They glue "themselves" to the inside of the tent, so it looks like they are peeking out of the door flap.  Click on the link to view/download the If I Ran The Circus Writing Craftivity packet.

1-2-3 Come Have Fun Becoming a Pirate and Writing With Me!

Since pirates continue to be an extremely popular theme, I've been working on a variety of activities this week.

writing prompts for spring, writing prompts for summer, writing prompts for March, writing prompts for April, writing prompts for may, writing prompts for june, making class books, class book ideas, pirate writing activities, pirate activities, free common core for 1st, free common core for kindergarten, I just completed these two, so if you are looking for a fun writing prompt before students leave for spring break, I think your students will enjoy making a class book entitled: Arrrr You Ready For Spring Break?

If your spring break has come and gone, you can make this booklet in May or June and have students write about what they are going to be doing over the summer. 

This class book is entitled: Arrrr You Ready For Summer Vacation?

I've included insert pages for both.  There's a girl pirate page, as well as one for the boys.

When they are done, they illustrate their page.

Make the book even more of a keepsake by having students glue their school picture over the face of the pirate and then color it.

I hope some of these national day, week and month-long celebrations get your students enthused about writing.  I truly believe that if students are excited about a topic they will WANT to write.  The more they write the better they'll get.  The better they write, the more they'll want to write.  It's like the  proverbial snowball rolling down the hill. 

Since it's almost springtime, let's use the analogy of a pebble thrown into a thawing pond where the ripples continue to reverberate!  So, as always, by all means....

WRITE ON!
