March Morning Work Tubs


It's coming!  I just know it is!  And boy, am I ever ready!

Here in Kansas, Mother Nature has been teasing us these last couple weeks.  We had record-breaking highs in the 70s last week, only to end the week with temperatures in the 30s and 40s.  The high today is 41 degrees.

That's just mean.

Don't get me wrong:  I absolutely love living in the Midwest.  As far as winter goes, I'm good with snow one or maybe two times in the winter.  But after I've gotten a little snow, I'm ready for spring! These weeks and weeks of cold temperatures with no snow really get me itching for nicer days and time outside!


The real reason I'm here today is to give you a sneak peek at my March Morning Work Tubs!  As you may know, my Morning Work Tubs are currently a work-in-progress.  Every time I finish a month's pack, I think to myself that it's my favorite pack so far.  But this time, I really think it's my favorite pack!  (Until next month, anyway!)

As I've explained in my previous monthly morning work tub posts, I have gotten several requests from all of you to give a sneak peek of the activities to help you gather materials.  I really try to create these activities in a way that makes them flexible material-wise.  Usually, if you don't have the same exact materials or manipulatives that I'm using, you can still use the activity.  You may have to modify it to some extent.  I don't want anyone to feel like they have to go out and spend a lot of money to get materials for these tubs!

Here is a peek at all 20 activities.  I've included affiliate links to some of the materials on Amazon if you're needing to get anything!  

1. Rhyming Leprechaun Link-Up (these are the links I have)
2. St. Patrick's Day Pictures 
3. Rainbow Final Consonant Matching
4. Shamrock Cut and Punch

5. Colorful Pots of Gold (You can use pony beads, pom-pom balls, etc.)
6. Gold Subtraction Smash
7. Good as Gold Letter Writing (I used a mixture of white sand and gold glitter.)
8. Pot of Gold Transfer Activity (I got the sparkly gold pom-poms from Hobby Lobby!)

9. Word Building (You can use any letter beads, or you can stamp the words)
10. Spin and Graph
11. Echo Drawing
12. Leprechaun Letter Match

13.  Color-by-Number (There is also a Color-by-Sum version for added difficulty.)
14. Count and Cover 
15. CVC Word Clip-It Cards
16. Number Mats

17. Rainforest Animals 9x9 Puzzles
18. Scrambled-Up Sentences

I love to see pictures of these tubs in action!  If you have a great way of storing your tub activities or if you have some pictures of these in action (no student faces, please), you can share them with me on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram (@kroltgen).
