Lion or Lamb?

Robins outside, dandelions growing, did spring sneak in the back door? Not that I'm complaining mind you, I was just surprised to see these wonderful harbingers of spring.

With March arriving yesterday, we talked about the "lion and the lamb,"--"March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb."

We made a cute little sign that the children can hang each day to symbolize if it's a lion day or a lamb day. I have one at the school and we are going to hang the appropriate character during opening time.

I have to apologize, my camera's battery died half way through the day so I don't have all the pictures I would like to share with you.

For this project I had a piece of 9x12 construction paper that said, "In like a LION," on one side and, "Out like a LAMB," on the other side.

I then had a pattern of a lamb and a lion, each pattern was circular shaped and the children had to cut out the circles (the lamb was white and the lion was yellow).

Then they glued the lion on the "lion" side and the lamb on the "lamb" side. To finish up, the lion got a mane made out of crepe paper and the lamb got some fluffy cotton fur.

Now the children can hang up their picture with the correct character that helps to define the day.

I just made something similar in my class - we used small paper plates, hole punch, and then turned them into necklaces.
