The months seem to fly by at school and right after the whirlwind of February you have March. March also has many special days in it but March is reserved to remember and honor women. Whoot whoot!!! I don't know about you all but some days I feel like I need to honored after completing a day of just the ordinary stuff. The wonderful thing about women is for the most part they just do the job at hand, dust off their hands and move on to next thing. It is that "get her done" attitude that women have that make us special. My Mom used to say if you want to get the job done quickly and right get a woman! Now I love my hubby and he is the best but most men seem to need to little "pattin" sometimes to get going. I'm not bashing men they happen to be some of favorite people but dang it girls ...we deserve a month. So let's celebrate!
I created this Women's History Project for our first graders. This is what it looks like. You can grab it here for free. I have also included the rubric I created as well. The photo above is the work of one of my honeys at school. More projects are coming in soon. I also want to share this link from What Do We Do All Day?...reading, playing and learning with kids. (Her blog title just reinforces my argument, I just love it!) This link provides you a great list of books for Women's History Month. Please take time to leave a comment if you can. We all have to stick together!
Take time to give yourself a treat this month! You deserve it!
All the best,
