Spring Resources and Activities

Welcome spring into your classroom with FREE reading and writing activities!
ABC's of Spring!
We like to do this activity to welcome spring!  We pair is with a great spring read aloud book, like When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes.  You could also use many of the books on our favorite spring book list below!  You can complete this task in your classroom in several ways: together as a whole group, teacher led in small groups, partner pairs or small student groups working together, or with a parent volunteer!


Reading Comprehension with Bear Books!
 We love to pair these Bear books together for some comprehension lessons in spring!
Bear Snores On is a great way to talk about hibernation. And Bear Wants More is great to talk about animals waking in spring. Use the links to grab them on Amazon! (affiliate links)
Here is a FREE comprehension sheet to practice predicting with both books.  Students predict the setting of each book and support their ideas using pictures and/or words.  The books are great for predicting the setting because they have great pictures to show the seasons.
After reading both books, students compare them!
