Some SPRING Freebies & Poems

My spring break is almost over (sniff sniff).

But happily, I'm starting the week out with these fun spring poems and writing activities.

I'm going to start the day with this lovely poem by Meish Goldfish. I found this particular copy at Mrs. Wills' Kindergarten blog. Thank you, DeeDee!

Later in the day, I'm going to read the kids a couple of spring books. I can't remember which ones I have at school, but these look perfectly suitable!

Then the kids will partner talk about signs of spring before sharing with the group and working on these spring/winter organizers I found at Can Teach.

Once these are completed the kids will write their own Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring poems. Here's an example of what I mean:

And they'll print them on this cute little frame:
