Spring Activities, Books and Ideas

Share it:
Spring is in the air and all we want to do is be outside and enjoy this beautiful weather, right? Well, I know how you feel so I wanted to stop by and share some Spring Activities, Literacy Ideas, Books and Ideas for Your Classroom that I have found to be helpful this time of the year! The weather is wonderful to step outside for some outdoor learning and fun. Do you use any outdoor activities this time of the year? I love to read to my kids outdoors and do fun stuff, like chalk sidewalk writing, or exploring the scenery. One thing I always did with my own children during this season was scavenger hunts and insect collecting. The kids have fun with the change of scenery!

I love creating an inviting environment throughout the school year. So the best way is incorporating themed activities! Kids love having a change of scenery and lessons that engage! I will share my top spring themed resources. You can click the link on any (both available on my TPT and this website! I will link both below.

 Here is a list of some of my go- to Spring Activities & Resources to use during this time.

The special days that are coming up are: St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Earth Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day. So having these handy and printed ahead of time really helps with décor and celebrations.

I love using these because it really encourages my students to use higher level thinking and integrates writing skills on each weekly passage.
