Mentor Text: In November by Cynthia Rylant
In March. . . the world seems to
wake up from a
long winter’s nap.
The cool nights turn
hope and joy.
Flowers begin to
burst through the ground.
Grass turns from ugly brownish gray
to flecks of bright green popping up.
Farms are coming to life . .
Baby animals ready to be born.
Machinery is checked, cleaned, and repaired
for the planting season.
Birds fly back. . .
Geese honking overhead.
Plans are made. . .
Hopes are high!
Children (and teachers) are filled
with excitement about SPRING BREAK!
Sometimes Easter is in March . . .
Family dinners and the aroma of ham or
yeast rolls fill the air.
Children race around,
hunting Easter eggs.
March is a wonderful time of year!
Writing Invitation. . . what is your favorite month of the year?
