March Read Alouds
March is here and with it comes SPRING! March Read Alouds are just as fun as February’s! There are so many books to share with your students. Some of my favorite March read alouds are about St. Patrick’s day and funny little leprechauns but I also incorporate weather type of books as well. March offers a smorgasbord of fun stories to share. Here are just a few of my favorites!
Green Shamrocks by Eve Bunting
Rabbit is growing shamrocks in a pretty yellow pot–he’s getting them ready for St. Patrick’s Day so he can wear them for the parade! When his pot of beautiful green shamrocks goes missing, he goes searching . . . will he find them in time?
There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Clover
She’s back! That lovely old lady has returned just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Now she’s swallowing items to make the perfect rainbow to hide a pot of gold.
My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza
When a delicious-looking piglet knocks on Mr. Fox’s door “accidentally,” the fox can hardly believe his good luck. It’s not every day that dinner just shows up on your doorstep. It must be his lucky day! Or is it?Before Mr. Fox can say grace, the piglet has manipulated him into giving him a fabulously tasty meal, the full spa treatment (with bath and massage), and . . . freedom.
In a funny trickster tale of her own, Kasza keeps readers guessing until the surprise ending when they’ll realize it was piglet’s lucky day all along.
One Rainy Day
Pitter-Pat! Pitter-patter, pitter-pat! Little Hedgehog is very excited when he wakes up to the sound of raindrops. Finally he can wear his spiffy new raincoat, hat, and boots, and use his shiny new umbrella. But soon the rain shower turns into a storm and Little Hedgehog’s rainy day turns into a great big adventure! Little Hedgehog must use his new rain gear to rescue his friends. From the bestselling creators of One Snowy Night and One Winter’s Day comes a charming story that celebrates springtime, friendship, and sparkly, new rain boots. With shimmery, shiny detail wherever Little Hedgehog’s rain gear appears.
