What an AWESOME giveaway! My favorite thing to teach in the spring is POETRY! We go outside, lay down beach towels, put on sunglasses, and experience spring! Then we learn about different types of poetry and use the different formats to write about how much we love spring!~JessicaJoy in the Journey
What a great idea Jessica! We are doing poetry right now too, so thanks for the inspiration!Good luck!
My favorite Spring activity is to go outside to the school yard and discover perimeter and area of our foursquare and hopscotch game boards. My 6th graders also find circumference of the painted circles.
Roseanne, what a GREAT idea! That is our next math unit,so I will have to remember that!Good luck!
Love all these giveaways! My favorite thing about spring is being able to take my kids outside and do activities and lessons outside with them.Hunter's Tales from Teaching
I wish we had a comfy spot outside to work! I would so go there!Good luck!
One of my favorite spring art projects is to make kites. The kids cover a construction paper diamond with tissue paper and I spray it with water. The color bleeds out onto the paper and it almost looks tie-dyed. This is an amazing giveaway!-Chrissy
Chrissy, do you then remove the tissue paper? ♥ your idea! Going to have to try it!Good luck!
Happy birthday month! I hope it is a good one. Congratulations on one year of blogging!Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway! AmyEclectic Educating

My favourite spring activity to do with my class is to make rockets. The activity is great once it is finally nice enough to get outside. I have done both bottle rockets and rockets using engines. The students in my class love it. We also host a Star Party each year and set up high powered telescopes in the school yard. The students and their parents/families come later in the evening and get to look at the splendours of the cosmos!SidneyTeachingisagift
I bet the kids adore the rocket activities. I sure would!Good luck!

Hi :) I currently don't have a classroom (student teacher) but I love seeing all the neat ideas teachers are doing for spring. One cool idea I have seen for any time of the year that could be used now is how different cultures around the world celebrate spring/Easter/Earth day/ etc.
Great idea, Kendra!Good luck!

Happy BirthBlogiversary. LOLI hatch chicks or ducks in the spring. We talk about life cycles, kingdoms, vertebrates, all the cool stuff. It is a great tradition the kids look forward to every year. Chicks are great but ducklings are soooo cute. I don't know why but I haven't had as much success with the the ducks, 3 out of 12 eggs. I always find good homes for the babies!!Peggy
