March FUN with Art! Plus a FREEBIE!

I love teaching in March! There's a lot to look forward to with spring on its way and St. Patrick's day fun...not to mention spring break in there too! :) 

Next week the leprechauns start coming to our classroom and it is so much fun! We read "The Naughty Leprechaun" story and get a special coin to tell us whether the naughty or nice leprechaun will visit that night. You can read about how that all worked in my classroom last year here.
To get our hallway ready for March, we did a couple fun activities this week. We made these clovers and wrote about why we are lucky. They turned out super cute and you can do it with your kiddos too! I posted the freebie in my store! Please leave some love if you get a chance to use it. :)

Then the next day, we painted rainbows to brighten up our hallway! The kids love to paint and we seriously don't do it enough. It just so happened to be class picture day on the day we were painting and our staff decided to wear white shirts. Great planning huh?! Haha! I must have been very LUCKY because I didn't get any paint on my white shirt, although I'm sure I looked a little silly dancing around the kids' paintbrushes! Can't you picture it?! 

They turned out pretty cute and they enjoyed it! 

Some more March fun is on the way too because I finished up our March Math Stations. There are 10 fun math stations all aligned to the Common Core. We will use these all March long so it's not too late to get them ready for your room too! Catch them while they are on sale if you're needing some new math stations! :)
I hope you enjoy teaching this March as much as I will!

March Currently!

Well February was FAST, huh?! So fast that I haven't blogged since last Currently......WHOOPS! ;)
It's now a new month and a new start that always begins with Farley's Currently! Here is my March Currently and a pledge to blog a little more this month! 
Most of these are self explanatory, but here we go...
Listening to my husband watch the KSU game. He usually gets pretty fired up and is yelling at the TV every once in a while, but he's surprisingly pretty quiet tonight on such a close game! Haha! Maybe I'm speaking typing too soon! ;)

Loving a chance to relax...the weather is starting to get nasty with yet another snow storm moving in, so I'm glad we did our errands and went to church tonight! Now I can stay warm and cozy inside the rest of the weekend. 

Thinking - #PFCG (Pray for Carly Gassman). I cannot stop thinking about a young woman in our community who is a freshman at K-State and is battling cancer. She has been fighting for almost 2 years and things just took a turn for the worse. She has been given only a few days to live and has been in and out of a coma the last few days. I BELIEVE in the power of prayer and if you do too, I would love for you to keep Carly and her family in your prayers. We are praying for a miracle and praying for strength for her family! I can't even imagine what they are going through. It's heartbreaking to see such a beautiful, kind, and strong girl go through something like this. 

Conferences are this week for us and I'm wanting them to be over. There's a chance we may have a snow day on Monday and then that would put conferences back another week possibly. As much as I would love a snow day, I'm also ready to be done with conferences! :)

Needing internet back at school. We have been without internet for over a week and that's a big inconvenience especially when we need to get report cards done! It's amazing how much we rely on internet these days. answer to the mystery question is countertop, building, and fence! I bet that's not too hard to figure out! :)

Have a great week and stay warm!
