It’s the home stretch through the end of the year! It can be such a tough time: teaching the kids, keeping them engaged, and keeping yourself sane! I always find that adding some bright colors to the room helps. Additionally, some kindergarten writing prompts are a great way to decorate the room and motivate students to practice their writing skills.
Take a look at these fun March ideas to spruce up the room and keep kids engaged as the warmer months begin. We all know they get a little squirrely this time of year.
St. Patrick’s Day Writing Prompts
Crafts and writing go hand in hand! They make for fun fine motor practice and adorable displays in the classroom. Use this simple Leprechaun Writing Craft to decorate the room and work on writing! Choose from a variety of writing prompts depending on the needs of your kids! Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
- I’m lucky because …
- I see a leprechaun.

- How to catch a leprechaun.
There are so many routes to take with March writing prompts! Write about spring animals, what’s at the end of the rainbow, or what kids are looking forward to in March.
St. Patrick’s Day Newsletters
Newsletters are a great way to stay connected with parents and families at home. These printable Retro March Newsletters allow you to communicate with families and give them important information. Put necessary dates and notes in the newsletter and put them on your bulletin boards. Send them home to get parents involved in activities or school events. You can also post your information so they always know how to contact you.
You will also find these St. Patrick’s Day Newsletters in my shop! If you love cheetah print like I do, you’ll enjoy that little special touch.
March Bulletin Board Ideas
Did you know you are one lucky teacher? The classroom you are in needs you, and those students appreciate everything you do, even if they don’t show it!
Create a fun March Bulletin Board to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the amazing students in your class. This bulletin features their smiling faces and little crafts they can complete. The activities are perfect for morning work or as a literacy center assignment.
Once students color and cut out their little leprechauns, attach a picture of their faces and pin it up on the wall. They will love seeing their hard work and their faces on the bulletin board for all to see.
St. Patrick’s Day Slides with Timers
If you want even more of a St. Patrick’s Day theme in March, try these Slides with Timers! These allow you to post important information on the board at the start of each day. You can also use them for rotations or to wrap up the day. The timers are perfect for managing centers and transitions in the classroom. We all know how transitions can be tricky sometimes!
St. Patty’s Day Freebies
Invite your kids to share what makes them feel lucky using this Pot of Gold Freebie! They get to write something on each coin and share it with the class. When the crafts are done, they look great up on the bulletin board! Be sure to model what makes you feel lucky so they know how to complete the activity independently!
I hope using various of these March resources will make your room cheery and bright as you await spring! The kindergarten writing prompts are completely versatile for any child and are tons of fun to create! Use the slides, newsletters, and freebies to make St. Patrick’s Day a blast!
