Hello Spring Free Printables

It’s that wonderful time of year when the days start getting longer and we emerge from our cozy winter hideouts.

It's also the time of year when spring fever arrives in our classrooms!

To help you keep your kiddos engaged, here are a couple of spring activities that I used to harness the energy.

Spring Poem

This spring poem is perfect for kindergarten and first grade.

Add some seasonal pointers and have volunteers track the print while the class reads together.

I introduce a new poem/chant each week and it becomes the foundation for many of our phonics and reading activities.

The pointers make it fun for my first graders to practice tracking and I choose a volunteer from our Lucky Duck baskets to lead our reading of the poem.

On Fridays, they take home a copy in their Chant Books to share with their families.

Hello Spring Activity

We also read the book Hello Spring! and brainstormed a list of winter and spring items.

The story itself is short and simple but it was a perfect springboard for our discussion.

Believe me: even my little ones who adore the snow are ready to say goodbye to snowsuits, frozen noses and winter!

I was amazed at some of their creative ideas when we completed the follow-up activity.
