Teaching Ideas for April

Thursday, March 25, 2021
Springtime, the weather is warmer....and the kids are well... a bit crazy aren't they?!?!  Spring Fever is real y'all and if you didn't know that you must not be in education!

Welcome to another edition of...

I love Spring and the warmer weather, I love the longer days too!  But, spring time in the classroom can be a bit challenging at times.  They too are feeling the Spring break vibes ( just like you are )  But they are dreaming of long bike rides, fortnight and sleepovers...not mimosas. 😂😂

Here are some fun, engaging things you can do with your littles and their Spring Fever feels.

First off, if you are virtual or F2F this game is super fun and engaging for your kiddos!  They will ask to play this again and again!

My close reading packs are super EASY to pop right into Seesaw for a meaningful aysnchonous activity.  Here is one of my Spring packs.

Did you know that APRIL is National Poetry month ?!?!  I have a TON of poetry packs in my store, in fact many of them are bundled because I have so many.

Poems for a year with Sight Words

These are PERFECT for all year long.  They are all written by me and mostly seasonal.  There is a focus on sight word practice and either inferencing or a reading comprehension question included.

I have several packs as well as some of them are bundled - you can find them  here.

Insects, frogs and farms are also fun to teach on in the Spring... here are some fun packs with crafts. ( perfect to display at  Open House ) Click images to review farm unit.

Clearly, there's lots to teach in the Springtime.  Lots of fun themes to incorporate into Open House too.
