Lions and Lambs and March Weather

And here we are already in March...What? I can't believe it!

March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb ... but making that connection is difficult for many kindergarteners, so starting Friday and into next week, we are going to deconstruct that saying, learn about lions and lambs and then apply it back to why March is like a lion and a lamb... WHOA!

Sounds like a lot, I know, but you would be amazed what my little sweeties can come up with when they have help making connections.'

We started with a whole group brainstorm - we had to teach our Title 1 teacher what a lion was, because she had NEVER see one before ;o) ...and I was going to post the brainstorm, but my board eraser did her job too quickly! 

So, after the brainstorm, we used made lions and added some of their traits the lion mane so that other people could learn too...

The kids could pick whether to just color in a lion face or make his/her own and if he/she wanted to use lined papers to write or write right on the mane.

How cute! I thought they did a FABULOUS job and I am always SO excited when each child really takes ownership of the project, which they all did!
