Detailed directions are also provided with each of the activities shown on this page. The cost for all of the ideas is $15. There is a 10% discount for purchasing two monthly packages--2 for $27.

Start the month off with this fun April Fool activity!
Two different calendars are provided for children to complete. One calendar has dotted lined numbers to help students. The second one only has the first and last number. This is for students who are able to write numbers from 1-30. The PDF files are clear copies of the calendar. I apologize for the poor sample calendar shown here.
Bingo is a great game to play for developing listening skills, vocabulary building and small motor skills. Students cut out the pictures and make their own unique Bingo card. It's a great game to play all during the spring months. Picture card and blank grid are provided in a PDF file.
Spring Bee Basket
These little bumble bees were so cute all displayed on our spring bulletin board. They would also work as a May Day basket to hold flowers. All of the patterns and directions are given in a PDF file that make it easy to copy and make with your class.
The Runaway Bunny
This is a great follow-up activity after reading "The Runaway Bunny." The blank story writing paper is given with a book cover in a PDF file to make a class book with your students.
Bunny hats are made with pastel colors of construction paper for any Easter or Spring celebration!
Make spring lambs to celebrate spring. These make a cute bulletin board and are great to save for memory books.

Another fun project for a plant unit is making a little book and illustrating with your students.
Parts of a Seed Diagram

Lima Bean Book
This is a great follow-up activity to go along with the above diagram of the lima bean seed. It is written in a Brown Bear format to help students learn how a plant develops from a seed to bean plant. It is written in simple, emergent reader level text to make it easy for student to read and track.
This is a emergent reader that repeats "the" on each page to reinforce high frequency words. Students illustrate and write one word on each page. Copies can easily be made with each page in PDF files.
Parts of a Plant Paper Bag Project
