PK 3 learned about Saint Joseph.  He was a part of the Holy Family; Jesus, Mary and Joseph.  He was Mary's Husband and Jesus' Father.  Joseph was also a carpenter.  PK 3 prayed to Saint Joseph to protect, watch over and bless all the fathers and grandfathers in our lives.  We also prayed for builders and to help us when we build with our toys.  Students made tool belts to help us remember Saint Joseph.

We read the book “In Like a Lion and Out Like a Lamb” by Marion Dane Bauer.  We made our own Lion/Lamb mask out of paper plates.  We decorated one side with cotton balls, soft like a lamb and one side with orange, brown and yellow paper, in a pattern for the lion.  We are learning about the weather and what makes a “lion day” versus a “lamb day”.  Lions are fierce, loud, and sometimes scary.  The weather for a Lion day would be cold, rainy, snowy, windy and gray.  Lambs are soft, quiet and gentle.  A Lamb day would be sunny, warm and calm.  Each day during March, when we do our calendar, we
