I love to have my students make flower book reviews in the spring. They take a flower template and then fill it up with title, author, characters, setting, plot, and favorite part. Then we add some glitter and hang them from the window blinds.

I just wanted to let you know...I did each of those aforementioned things...but also wanted to tell you that I made a "Sight Word Candy Land" for my classroom earlier this year when I saw your idea. My sweet little Kinders LOVE it and want to play it all day every day! :-)

My current favorite spring project idea is a school garden! Our sixth graders have studied different growing techniques and just built several gardens for herbs, fruits, and vegetables. We hope to donate these items to local food banks and to restaurants that promote sustainable living.

I just started following your blog last week! One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to have my firsties make a Power Point. After "researching" an animal of their choice they create a little slide show with 5 slides. I'm always amazed at how great they turn out. Here's a link to my classroom website where you can see their Power Points (the site is nothing fancy--just a school site).

I have made the grass people as well as daffodils using paper cups painted yellow and flower petal made from construction paper! (very cute hanging in the hallway mounted on blue const paper!)

Ms. P said...

My favorite Spring activity is to raise butterflies in our classroom. My sweet little ones LOVE observing the caterpillars grow and change, and then releasing the butterflies at the end. We observe the changing creatures every day using magnifying glasses, developing vocabulary and learning how to label. I love my little budding scientists!

I like doing spring items for my bulletin board. We usually start out with flowers and then add each week until we get a full spring bulletin board by May.

I follow both First Grader at Last! and your TpT site. So exciting.
I have my kids make an Easter Hat parade. I give them a people cut out and then the kids use fabric, glitter, cute paper, and whatever else we find to decorate their person and make fancy hats for them. We do a small parade in our classroom and then I hang the people in the hall for a lasting parade. My kids love it.

Here are a few of my favorite spring/easter ideas: I love to buy those colorful pin-wheels at the dollar store and put a word family in the middle, then write letters on the sides. My kids have loved spinning the pin-wheel to see what words they can make. I am also planning to put sight words with each letter cut apart inside of easter eggs for the week before Easter. The kids can "crack" open the egg, and unscramble the words. Then, record them or use them in a sentence.

bbaxter711 said...

Oh, and I follow your blog! I pretty much check it once a week, if not more!! Thanks for all your inspiration.

My favorite Spring activities have to be the life cycles. There is just nothing like seeing those beaming Kinder eyes when ladybugs, butterflies, and ducks hatch, frogs grow, and their "Very Hairy Caterpillars" sprout!

My of my favorite spring activities is making raindrops by cutting blue paper into shapes and gluing inside a raindrop template and then adding flowers under the raindrops in the same way! They always turn out so unique and are very colorful under the raindrops.

My favorite spring activity is creating a change of seasons mural using the apple tree. Students are placed in groups of four (1 for each season) and each member is responsible for painting an apple tree at each stage of growth during the seasons. The students get to show off their art work, whether or not they remember their science lesson from months ago, and their cooperative skills.

One Spring project my team is taking on is to do a service learning project with a local city beautification organization. We're focusing on trash clean up and will clean up the parks around our school next week on Earth Day. We'll also have a speaker come in to talk about recycling, reusing and being good stewards of the Earth. I plan to use some of the great Earth day materials my blogger friends have shared, too!

I love making "March, In like a lion, out like a lamb"
Here's the poem...
In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb

March roars in like a lion
So fierce,
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.

The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear.

We then have the boys make lions and the girls make lambs and then I hang them in the room back to back so as they spin in the AC a lion is coming in on one side and out on the other side...They ♥love it!
