English for Children :March (Ideas for Teachers)

Hello, dear teachers!
If you want to talk  with your little students about March,you can use some of my ideas. I'm happy to share them with you.
So, you may start with the brainstorm activity: tell your students that you are going to discuss the topic March and show them two pictures : a picture of a lion and a sheep:

Ask your students how  these pictures can be connected with the theme of the lesson. Then show them this poster with the wellknown English proverb. And ask them how they understand these words.

"The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by. 
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here."
-  Author Unknown

You can give your students this interesting information about holidays.

March special days in the UK:
1 March -  St. David's Day, is the national day of Wales 
17 March, St. Patrick's Day, is the national day of  Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland. 
This song  helps teachers to tell kids about St. Patrick's Day. I do recommend to use it!

25 March -  Lady Day (Благовещение)

I'm sure, your children will like these poems about March.

Spring, Almost
The sunshine gleams so bright and warm,
The sky is blue and clear.
I run outdoors without a coat,
And spring is almost here.
Then before I know it,
Small clouds have blown together,
Till the sun just can't get through them,
And again, it's mitten weather.

March is an in between month,
When wintry winds are high.
But milder days remind us all,
Spring's coming by and by.

Winds Of March
Winds of March, we welcome you,
There is work for you to do.
Work and play and blow all day,
Blow the winter cold away.

Never mind March, we know
You're not really mad
Or angry or bad.
You're only blowing the winter away
To get the world ready
For April and May.

Ask children  to draw March pictures while listening to music
