Spring Has Sprung!

Here in Arizona, the day are getting warmer.
Heck, we have had a few days that were downright HOT.
The mornings and evenings are cool,
and everything is in bloom.
You can definitely tell that


In light of that I am linking up with my friends over at
For a new linky.


Spring is the perfect time for teaching about flowers and growing things, insects, life cycles, kites, bubbles, and so much more!

Here are just a few ideas that I have rounded up for you!

Spring is a perfect time for an author study on Eric Carle!




Here is a link to a bunch of activities all about Eric Carl's books.
