March Is…

“March Is…” by Linda Martin Andersen

A Writer's Playground Fotosearch_u17996074 “A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.

Think:  March is…a noun and a verb.  Complete these statements:  March of __________.  March on __________.  What book titles can you name for these two open-ended statements?  What about spring book titles?  Favorite poems about spring?

Look below at what March brings.  Research, read, or do something this reminds you of.  For example, March is National Craft Month.  It’s a windy month and so I decide to make a kite.  Since it’s also National Kite Month, I’ll fly it when it’s finished.  Now, look at the list of special days and weeks in March.  Do something special to remember one or more of these.  I hope you’ll share your thoughts here.
