Ask your child to share our March verse and finger play ( Mrs. May introduced us to it !).

The wind blew thru my 10 tall trees

and made them bow and bend

It rushed about to pick them up

and make them straight again

5 tall trees reached for the sky

5 bent in an arch

Up and down they blew around

In the windy month of March!!

We are busy with workbook pages and reviewing numbers 1-20, letters A-U, days of the week, months of the year, the seasons and weather changes!
