Roaring About March Poems

Will March come in like a lion and out like a lamb this year? I'm sure many of you are hoping that it will come in like a lamb and stay that way for the whole month! March is a great month for writing poems and I finally revised my March poetry unit. It has 9 original poems and a mini poetry book about Potato Chips!

Did you know that March 14th is National Potato Chip Day? What a fun way to celebrate the day with a poem and have some potato chips! If you click on the picture above and download the Preview file you will get this fun poem, "Potato, Chip, Potato Chip" and activity free.
You will find 2 poems about the wind including this Cinquain. Your students will learn how to write one as well.
March is also the beginning of spring and the time when animals wake up from their long winter nap. I've written a poem called, "Wake Up Sleeping Animals" which tells about what these animals have been doing all winter.
Have you heard about March Madness? It's the big college basketball tournament that usually starts in the middle of March. Students will have fun learning and acting out this fun chant.
Hope you've enjoyed this fun sampling of my unit. There are also several different forms of poetry and writing activities including Informative text and Opinion Piece writing activities included. Don't forget to download the preview to get your free poem.

Did you know that March 1st is National Pig Day? Time to give pigs some respect for being intelligent and clever animals. I wrote a poem about pigs to celebrate their day which you can download for free. Just click on the picture below to get your free packet. Students will also learn to write a "How To Be" Poem about Pigs!

You can also check-out my St. Patrick's Day and Ireland post that includes this free Noun Sort by clicking on the picture below. The post has lots of free resources, craft ideas, and great books for read alouds that you don't want to miss.
 Thanks for all you do to make a difference for your students. Let's hope March comes in like a lamb!
