March activities

February left us with leafless trees and cool colors, so we made a mural of patterns on tree trunks.

So much going on in March...
In celebration for Dr. Seuss' birthday we made a truffula tree forest. The Lorax is my favorite Dr. Seuss story so we had to make the truffula trees. I found it on pinterest here

I made the bulletin board with fabric flowers for spring!
I went to my local home depot and asked if they would donate the black tubes, flower wiring (to connect the tissue paper flower to the tubes) and yellow tape and they did!

Still keeping up with reading I have a phonics review board. I have found that after the break and they are done with letter sounds and short vowel review things get hard FAST! So I love this phonics review board, it reminds me of what they learned!
I went to Red Butte Garden's teacher grow lab workshop and received a free grow lab! I had a volunteer come out from Red Butte Garden to start our kids with Brassica Rapa seeds.
Walk on the "moon" and say "oo" words like "soon" "cartoon" and "baloon"
