March is the time of year when winter starts to lift and spring is in the air. It may seem like that would be a welcome thing for everyone, but some kids may have mixed feelings about the change.
They may welcome spring or feel sad about losing their favourite season. They may have mixed feelings about spending more time outside. Or they may be excited about what is to come.
These March emotions printables can help children to both identify and talk about all those different feelings.
March Copywork Emotions Sentences:
Being able to identify and discuss emotions is an important skill to develop in childhood. Kids need to develop a solid understanding of emotions and learn how to effectively express their own.
These printing practise worksheets allow kids to practise their printing while also normalizing talking about emotions. They have a shamrock theme which is perfect for March.

- plastic sleeve AND dry erase marker
Download the printable pages. To make them reusable, laminate the pages or slip them into a plastic page protector. Students can use a dry erase marker to do the tracing and writing.
If you want to just have them be single use, give the student a pencil, crayons, coloured pencils, or markers and the printed papers.
Instructions for the student:
- Read the sentence.
- Fill in the outline.
- Trace the dotted words.
- Write the sentence on the lines provided.
- Discuss the different emotions.
These worksheets can be the jumping off point for a discussion with the whole class or one-on-one talk about different emotions. They can be used by teachers, homeschoolers, parents, or therapists.
March Feelings Log:
Keeping a daily log of feelings helps kids to examine their emotions. It also allows them and their teacher or parents to recognize any patterns they see emerging when looking back through the log. This can provide important insight.
By participating in this daily exercise, kids can normalize talking about their emotions. They may also lay the groundwork that helps get to the root of why they are feeling the way they are.
Doing this at the same time each day can develop a positive habit.
It may be most helpful to do this in the morning to then be able to adjust activities or expectations based on how the student is feeling or it may be best to do after supper or before bed to reflect on and analyze the day.
Teaching emotions is such a powerful lifelong tool to gift your kids with.
I’ve created a Feelings Log for March that includes a writing prompt and drawing prompt about spending time in nature and going outside to play, and weekly tracking sheet of “Today I feel” along with sweet little shamrock faces to use to help them better express their emotions.
