March Forth–Do Something

Posted by lindamartinandersen on February 29, 2016

A Writer's Playground Fotosearch_u17996074  A Writer’s Playground–a place to find wordplay, writing
prompts, reasons to celebrate, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those
young at heart.  “March 4th–Do Something” by Linda Martin Andersen


Writing Prompts:

  1. What is your favorite fable and why?  Read a copy of the fable and then tell it to someone.  Rewrite it in your own words.
  2. What famous doctor has a birthday on March 2?  Tell about celebrations you have participated in to remember this famous name in literature.
  3. Have you ever played in a bucket drum band?  What thing makes a great musical sound that isn’t an instrument in the band?
  4. Name a way to march forth and celebrate this month.  What will you do?
  5. Name a favorite topic.  Look for poems on that topic.  Swap poems with friends for Poetry Day: 21.

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend. Please leave a comment.  What special plans do you have for March?  Share, if you’d like. Remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them.  For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!

    Dear Linda,
    I’m marching fourth with great vigor into the spring time and more daylight hours. I’m rejoicing because I can move and go back and forth as I like.

    Celebrate you
    Never Give Up

  2. Dr. Seuss by any chance?

  3. Can’t fool a children’s writer!

  4. Linda, love the pun “March Forth” and the banner you created is wonderful. I like the 21st of sharing a poem. I always enjoy your monthly playground activities. 🙂

    Wow, great suggestions. I know when the kids were younger their schools took part in World Book Day. But I am not sure how much they do in high school. Everything seems different in high school 🙂

    • I would have to agree that high school is a whole different world. A World Book Day sounds like a great day to ceolebrate. I appreciate you visiting and commenting, Bee. You are a busy blogger. That makes you, Busy Blogger, Bee. Like the alliteration?

    When I was a teacher assistant in a pre-school class we actually made green eggs and ham. The children got such a kick out of it 🙂 I did too!

    • Kathy,
      What a great way to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day and maybe St. Patrick’s Day too. Making green eggs and ham must have been hilarious fun. Terrific memory for children and adults alike. Thanks for sharing this.
