March Bulletin Board:
Here's the bulletin board the class creates for the month of March.  It is based on a bulletin board I once saw on the Internet but I can't remember where so I am unable to give credit for it. Some teachers have emailed me for instructions on how to create it. Directions are below.

First, create a leprechaun by making parts of its body (pants, upper body, two arms, an orange beard, a pink face, hands, a hat and shoes).  Glue the pieces together.  Students like to pose the arms in different positions to give them their own personality. Next, have students create a name for their leprechaun.  One year, students used their last names and added O' or Mc in front of it: McGomez, O'Hernandez, etc. Have students cut out a black pot and write the leprechaun's name on it.

Then, they create biographies about their leprechauns.  In order to prepare students for this, we read books about leprechauns and St. Patrick's Day. We create a web on leprechauns, adding to it as we read each book.  (Below I have listed some of the books I use with this activity). Once the students have a enough information on leprechauns, they begin writing their biographies.  Emphasize that the biographies should be silly or exaggerated.  It makes them fun to read.  Once they have written their good copies, attach them to the pot. Create a rainbow and post the leprechauns around the rainbow.

March Theme

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb!

  

Use paper plates to create a lamb and a lion.  Glue the two plates back to back and let dry.  Punch a hole in one of the plates and put yarn through. Hang them up in your classroom or hallway.
