March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb! {FREEBIE}

March is on its way! 



To signify March’s entrance, use this fun sorting activity with your students. 


Accompany this activity with the book, In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb by Marion Dane Bauer.

Here’s what you can do with your kiddos:

1. Read the story by Marion Dane Bauer, “In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb.”

2. As you read, record students’ thoughts on chart paper. Divide the chart paper into two sections: Lamb and Lion. Students can help you fill in the chart by adding characteristics of each animal on the chart. As you’re writing the characteristics, guide students into understanding the book isn’t really describing animals, but the seasons.

3. Once you’re done reading the book and filling out the chart paper, give students the sheet with the two rectangles labeled “lion” and “lamb.” Also give students the half sheet of phrases they’ll need to cut out.

4. Tell students they’ll need to cut out the phrases and sort them into the different rectangles.

This sort is a part of my In Like a Lion Out Like a Lamb craftivity. Find it here!


If you want to extend your students' knowledge and have a cute little craft to go with it, just head on over to my TpT store to grab this craftivity. It’s double sided, so when it’s hung in your classroom ceiling you can see both sides! They can use this sheet to help them write about March as a lion and as a lamb for their craftivity.





Happy almost March!
