    First, don't forget that March 2 is Dr. Suess's birthday and there are many cool things that you can do with that. Have your students use construction paper to make the red and white cat hat. You can create a head band for the students to wear the hat or you can use each hat to decorate your bb for rhyming words from the books of Dr. Suess.

    Math - sorting - use Lucky Charm cereal to sort the marshmellow shapes. Create a rainbow to display in the room.

    Learning is Treasured - using construction paper, have your students make a black pot, using yellow construction paper cut into circles have them write one word on each circle that they associate with learning. For younger classrooms, they can dictate the words to a scribe. It's good to get upto 20 words on the paper. (depending on the size)

    We're As Good As Gold - bb - create a big black pot with the words 'pot of gold' on the front in gold construction paper. Use multiple colored streamers to creat an end of the rainbow effect. Take a digital picture of each of your students and blow it up to fit on a small desert paper plate. Put two of the paper plates together to give it a raised look. Glue the students picture to one side and label. Using gold/yellow cellophane paper, wrap each plate and attach to the bb to be your pieces of gold. You can also use shamrocks to let students write a sentence about what they love to learn in school and place around the pot. For a greater effect, take a picture of each classroom teacher and aide and make each one a leprechan on the board. Good luck!
