March Activities: March is National Dandelion Month, National Peanut Month, St. Patrick’s Day, National Wildlife Week, The Spring Equinox, Early Spring’s Indoor Gardens, Windy Projects, March Field Trips and outside exploration. These are the topics and ideas that we are incorporating for the month of March activities along with our Montessori Curriculum. When the weather gets warmer we will be exploring the world around us and making new discoveries. Each child will need a dollar store magnifying glass labeled with their name.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! In observance of Saint Patrick’s Day, please bake green goodies to share with our children on Wednesday, March 14th.

Being Green: Being Green is not only about St. Patrick’s Day. It is also about caring for our environment and trying to change the way we do things so that we stop harming and polluting the world around us. Earth is facing massive problems at the moment, but everyone can do something to help. Much of the air is no longer clean to breathe; a lot of the land and many rivers and oceans are polluted. Tropical rain forests are being chopped down. Plants and animals are dying out. We are using up the Earth’s supply of fossil fuels, such as oil and coal. What can we do? Everything that you do, no matter how small has an effect on the world around you. Children can help to make the world a better place. The future of the Earth is in your hands.
Be Green and Keep it Clean!!!
