March - Book Three

March - Book Three

This is the third book in the trilogy called March – Book Three. This graphic novel continues the struggle of African-Americans during the Civil Rights Movement. The focus of this novel is the fight for the right for African-American to register and vote in southern states. John Lewis is the chairman of one minority group called the SNCC, but he also joins the minority group Martin Luther King Jr. is affiliated with to pursue equal rights. John Lewis tells the movements’ stories with truth, frustration, grace, and thankfulness. Both the words and the graphic pictures tell and show students every powerful story in this time period of the pursuit of justice to obtain the right for African-Americans to vote. I have added some sites and videos for students to see to help clarify the events explained in the book. I have also integrated writing and speech assignments into this one giant social studies’ period of time.

Little Chick Hide and Seek Game Felt Board Set Digital Pattern Easter Farm

Little Chick Hide and Seek Game Felt Board Set Digital Pattern Easter Farm

This is a fun interactive game that children love to play. It encourages vocabulary development and colour recognition. Depending on the concepts you are trying to develop you can make the eggs using plain coloured felt as I have or introduce patterns. This felt set is easy to make. No sewing at all. This is how we play. First, talk about the eggs, highlighting colours, perhaps you could count them as well. Then,in a sneaky way, hide the chick underneath one of the eggs. If children are younger you might need to let the chick poke out just a little in the beginning. Then chant with the children: Little Chick, Little Chick Playing hide and seek. Are you under the [colour ] egg? Let’s take a peek. Children take turns guessing which egg the chick is hiding under by identifying an egg by colour and removing it to search underneath for the chick. For example: Are you under the red egg? If the child’s guess is incorrect replace egg and begin again. The chick is 8 cm tall (just over 3 inches) and the eggs are 9 cm tall (almost 4 inches).

Then, in a sneaky way, hide one of the rabbits underneath one of the eggs. If children are younger you might need to let the rabbit poke out just a little in the beginning. Then chant with the children: Little Bunny, Little Bunny ‘Won’t you come out and play I wonder which egg you’re hiding under today. Are you under the [large/medium/small ] egg? Let’s take a peek. Children then take turns guessing which sized egg the rabbit is hiding under by identifying an egg by size and removing it to search underneath for the rabbit. If the child’s guess is incorrect replace egg and begin again. Each rabbit is 10.5 cm tall (just over 4 inches) and the eggs are 12.5, 16 and 19cm cm tall (5, 6.25 and 7.25 inches). This Pattern includes: A complete list of felt and supplies required Full sized patterns – just print and use – no need to enlarge, reduce, trace or duplicate Detailed step-by-step instructions A song card template containing the words to the song ready to print, laminate and use.
