Math Magic Madness in March!

We are mad about math in the month of March! Why?  Because this is the time of year when we see the “magic” of math really begin to make connections with young children. Instead of copying patterns, children are creating their own, counting to 100 not only by 1’s, but by 10’s, 5’s, and 2’s, graphing, adding and subtracting, talking about hexagons, trapezoids and rhombus’ and using math words in every day conversations.  Wow, we’ve come a long way since September. It really is magic!

Pictures of Germany:

Some of the great mathematicians such as Albert Einstein came from Germany, therefore I’ve included pictures of this beautiful country!  The top two collages were taken by moi and the next few collages were taken by my assistant’s hubby,  Mr. M.L (the Black Forest)! What talent!

Spring Has Sprung!


Well almost anyways. Our calendar says spring begins on March 20th. Thankfully we have started to feel some “spring” in the air. (Sorry to those who are still dealing with snow and freezing weather!) It has been cold in the mornings, but warmer in the afternoon. We have even seen some crocuses beginning to bloom. YAY!

 Our students are also feeling the “spring” in the air and enjoying longer outside play time. They have also been a little crazy inside too! Fortunately, we have been keeping spring excitement somewhat contained by investigating signs of the season of spring through nature walks, books and activities.  We hope some of our ideas will help bring spring to your classroom too!

We also want to share pictures of Ireland in the Spring. Ms. G is our awesome photographer who has the gift of capturing the beauty of Europe. 


Love how the kids moved my books down to accommodate their own masterpieces!
