March began with a reminder that Winter had not yet said its goodbyes. The last days in February were mild and spring-like; the first evening brought with it gently falling snow. Walking through the park the next day, I enjoyed the snowscapes and hoped they would be the last I saw this Winter season.
The falling snow on many days during March definitely made me wish to curl up on the sofa with a good book in pajamas. Pajamas were the theme of our spirit day just before March Break and the children came to school in sleepwear. My students brought along their stuffed animals as well to keep them company during the day.
The time after March break passed quickly and, before we knew it, it was the Easter weekend. During the days leading up to the long weekend, I planned a number of building activities in my classroom for the children as a part of the inquiry on structures. They had the opportunity to build bridges with popsicle sticks,
cars with card and wood,
and a structure of their choice with building blocks.
March ended as it began – with cool weather. Snow is not falling but the temperatures are still lower than we would like them to be. Hopefully April will bring with it higher temperatures and thepromise of summer.
What was your March experience?
