March dates are sure to bring lots of fun to classrooms. Calendar dates can help to make days special and opportunities to learn. Special days and observances can be everything from silly to serious and everything in between.
These special days don’t have to be only celebrated at home. Knowing the days can extend to homes and family activities too. Aren’t we all looking for ways to make learning at fun everywhere? After a year of being in the midst of a pandemic aren’t we all ready for some FUN?
I know I have NOT included every celebration in the list below. But the list below should get you started with some “hours of fun!” ENJOY! If you are ready for even more fun, check out the websites below that list additional holidays and celebrations. Along with basic information you will find classroom resources and lesson ideas.
