Spring Activities for Kindergarten

Spring is only a few weeks away! I love all of the themes that we teach each spring. A few of those themes include life cycles, plant life, Easter, and more. Here are a few of my spring resources. Click each link to grab any of them in my tpt store.

The kiddos will each create one of these plant parts posters. They can either use the labels that I have created that explain the function of each plant part, or they can write their own information on the second set of labels.

This is one of my favorite activities that we complete year after year. This frog life cycle crafts turns out to be so adorable, and they make your classroom look "springy" once hung up. 

Kids love any math activity that includes candy. Jelly beans are a perfect math manipulative during spring. I created a set of 10 different math activities that all use Jelly Beans. I ask each student to bring in one bag of Jelly Beans so that we have plenty to use for all of the Jelly Bean math activities.

These life cycle hats are perfect for a spring learning center. Your kiddos order each life cycle and then glue them to their hat. They then decorate, staple, and wear.

I love to keep a variety of emergent readers in our book boxes. This set of 6 spring themed emergent readers do just that. We read them whole group in class, individually during guided reading, and then place them in our book boxes. They then become our reading homework after we have perfected them!

We love to use poems during shared reading! These spring themed sight word poems are perfect for teaching sight words, fluency, tracking print, rhyme, and spring topics. We create a poetry notebook for Spring, and add to the poetry notebook. These are used during guided reading, read to self, book box time and more.

The kids love to learn about animals! Each spring we learn about the life cycle of a chicken, frog, and butterfly. I created these non-fiction chicken slides to teach them about the characteristics of a chicken. The kids are always more engaged if I use the projector. We also complete many chicken life cycle activities including an emergent reader, craft, sequencing activity, fact/opinion activity, writing book, and more!

After we complete our chicken life cycle unit, we will create this "just hatched" chick. These turn out adorable and make a great spring display. Grab the template here!
