World Water Day: March 22nd, 2012

Learn about World Water Day, a United Nations Celebrated holiday annually on March 22nd.

Every week (Tuesday, to be specific) we do dictation in my class for our Eagle Cove School Monthly portfolios.  We do so (as a school) to practice handwriting, spelling, phonics, attentive listening skills, and more.  It can be about anything:  a seasonal poem, spelling word sentences, a social studies concept, something along the lines of a "green" theme... the sky is the limit.  This week, we are opting to go green.  I'm tying it in with this Thursday's World Water Day.


Learn along with us as we do our dictation:

World Water day is every year

On March 22nd.  It is

Really an important day because a

Lot of people get

Diseases from their local  


Water.  It can even cause death.

A million women and

Their children walk

Each day over 3.5 miles to

Reach water that might be


Dirty.  Sadly, 1 in 8 people do not have

Access to clean water globally.

You do!  Don't take water for granted!
