April showers- April Writing, Printables, Centers, and Easter Printables!

This weekend it’s looking like March is going to be wrapping up with another snowy Saturday… just in time to start planning for April.

I am ready for a break and my students are seeming like they’re ready for a break… so is it too soon to start the countdown?

Here are a few quotes from my class this week:

“My engine is running really high this week.” (No, it wasn’t the productive, working engine… it was the run through the classroom kind of engine).

“Ok my brain is having trouble imagining grass.”

and lastly

“How many days until summer?”

So, as we head into April, I’ll be looking for ways to keep them engaged and learning as the spring fever amps up even further.

New centers are always one thing that does the trick. I’ve created a pack of 6 new spring centers. A couple of them are “work work” type centers, and a couple of them are writing centers.

April showers are also another inevitable part of the month, and I’m counting on them meaning RAIN showers (Please!). My students are always a little more difficult to engage on a rainy day and indoor recess certainly doesn’t help the matter. I’ve also put together some rainy day activities including response to a couple of my favorites Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Rain Came Down.

I, personally, like to keep these as “back pocket” activities to use on that especially rainy week. It seems like their narrative and opinion writing also comes more easily when they can relate to the experiences.

I’ve also created an April Writing pack. It includes a printable journal with prompts, blank paper templates (to add for free choice writing, or to go with existing writing assignments you may do), and some listing activities.

And lastly… who doesn’t love a little Henry and Mudge. My firsties are SOOO excited to finally be approaching chapter books. I’ve created the first of many of my Henry and Mudge book companion packs.
