St. Patrick's Day is confusing. You HAVE to wear green. If you don't… you get pinched!?
UGH- this is a nightmare in my classroom. It is hard for my students to get the holiday and to realize the fun of it. It becomes such a literal interpretation of a pinching war.

I use monthly themes to drive all instruction. I like to base my lesson plans around my monthly 20 vocabulary words. I designed this product to help drive instruction for your classroom too! In March I will be focusing on St. Patricks Day and How to Set a Table!
So what is included?
I include two different "refrigerator copies" in this bundle. I send these home in the beginning of the month so that families are able to help their child learn the vocabulary at home as well!

New Month means new themes, crafts and goodies! I am IN LOVE with Pinterest! I don't know how teachers taught before it was invented. There are so many fun seasonal ideas that I find on Pinterest that I use in my classroom. Please follow my March Pinterest board to see all the goodies I've found all over the internet. I hope you can use some of my finding's in your classroom too! Be sure to follow because I add to the board all year long- and you might find some goodies for next year too!

Schedules Schedules Scheudles. Yes- they are important. and YES they are a headache. I can't live with them, I cannot live without them. It's kind of one of those love/hate relationships wouldn't you say?

Be together. Not the Same
When I watched this I instantly thought about my students. They are challenged every day in every way possible to "be the same" or "be normal" and most often "just blend in." I fight for them to not feel pressured to be the same. And I just love this commercial as it simply states
Be TOGETHER. Not the SAME
