Oh my gosh y'all it's SPRING!! Finally!! It's hard to believe that this is our last semester of school but I'm so excited for the next few months of learning with my kiddos.
Today I'm joining some amazing teacher bloggers to share about the Spring season in my classroom. Make sure you stick around till the end of this post for a FREEBIE and an awesome GIVEAWAY!!
Spring is such a fun time in my classroom. The kiddos and I are starting our bird research unit next week and on Friday we got ready by checking out some bird books from the library. They just learned the numbers in the nonfiction section of our school library, so they were very excited that they could find them and pick them out by themselves.
My teammates and I have a huge surprise for the kids too! Our instructional coach got some chicken eggs and an incubator for them to observe. I can't wait for them to see it next week!
Here are some pictures from my kids' bird research from last year. I can't wait to share pictures from this year! I've learned so much since last year and I'm really beefing up my research unit.
Spring is also a time that I love to work on and refine my kids' problem solving skills. We've learned more and it's time to start working on harder word problems. I finished these Spring Word Problem Cards a few weeks ago and my kids are really loving all of the word problems.
You can check out these Spring Word Problem Cards HERE.
My kids are also enjoying my Spring Fix It Up Sentences. I have a First and Second Grade version and I use both of them in my classroom to differentiate. The kids love choosing sentences that are just right for them to edit. You can click on the preview pictures to check out both of these packs.
Since we are learning all about birds this Spring, my kids from last year really enjoyed this Spring Cinquain Poem and Craft from The Learning Junction Depot. Click on the product cover or picture to check out this FREEBIE.
Here's how ours from last year turned out. The kids wrote a poem based on the bird that they researched. I think they turned out pretty cute!!
Spring is also a great season for Poetry. You can also grab my Poetry Freebie by clicking on the product cover below.
