Can you believe April is here already? That means it’s time to think Spring! If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I love a good classroom theme change! 😊
Prepping for a new month isn’t just about changing up your decor. If you need some super spring-themed activities to keep your littles engaged in learning this month, keep reading! Here are a few of my favorites:
We love reading Too Many Carrots and making a sweet card for someone we “carrot” about! Check out my how to video on Instagram here.
Spring is a great time to amp up your little writers and get them ready for first grade with practice writing complete sentences and adding details to their writing.
Just print and go! Get kids excited about writing with these prompts for April that include topics about:
- Earth Day
- Pond Life
I’ve included a word bank with two different variations both with and without prompts to allow for differentiation for your little writers. It’s a win-win!
These sub plans are QUICK and easy for centers or last minute plans. Nothing is worse than needing a sick day the week before Easter when your kiddos are so excited for the Easter bunny to come. This pack comes complete with pre-written sub plans and a spot for you to add your own schedule and directions, as well as an easy to implement behavior plan.
I like to use the spring math tasks for our math problem solving notebooks each month! I’ll also copy a few pages like the rhyming rainbows, sentence scramble, and addition page for my sub tub and leave it on my desk just in case I have an unplanned meeting or absence.
This emergent reader is the perfect way to practice sight words with your kiddos. Kids cut, unscramble, and glue the sight word to each page. They are a staple at our guided reading centers every week and they love that they can do them independently – it really builds little reader’s confidence and practices a sight word!
