Have you been looking for a way to provide more student voice and choice in your classroom? This March Holidays Choice Board is a great way to help students take ownership of their learning, while at the same time practicing essential reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.

Your students will have so much fun working on these activities about weird and wacky holidays in March that they won't even realize they are learning!

Please click the green PREVIEW button to see a complete look at the March Holidays Choice Board!

The March Choice Board includes 8 creative activities for students to choose from (based on the 8 multiple intelligences). Each activity references a national holiday that takes place in March. Choice Boards are great for early finishers, but can also work in a center rotation, or as independent work during your reading workshop time. You decide how many activities you want your students to complete, making differentiation a snap!

This is also a great idea to send home as monthly homework! My students' families loved working on these Choice Boards as an alternative to traditional (boring) worksheets.

Here's what you get:

February Holidays Choice Board, including these activities:
❶ Art Smart- Reading Quilt (National Quilt Day)
❷ Word Smart- Make Your Own Holiday (National Make Up Your Own Holiday Day)
❸ Logic Smart- Pizza "Pi" Facts (National Pi Day)
❹ Self Smart- Incredible Kid Letter (National Absolutely Incredible Kid Day)
❺ People Smart- Happy Interview (National I Want You to Be Happy Day)
❻ Body Smart- New Walking Path (National Take a Walk in the Park Day)
❼ Nature Smart- Butterfly Fact Sheet (National Butterfly Day)
❽ Music Smart- New Anthem (National Anthem Day)

Activity Cards
The Activity Cards tell students exactly what they need to do to complete each project successfully.

Activity Sheets
Each activity has a corresponding Activity Sheet. Some are planning sheets, while some are designed to house the completed activity.

Students are graded on 4 categories on a 1-4 scale. Read the rubric with the students beforehand so they know exactly what is expected!
