Signs of Spring (freebie writing activity)

Yipee! We have a 3 hour early dismissal tomorrow, and then we are on SPRING BREAK! My goodness, I am beyond excited for this much-needed break. I have ABSOLUTELY NO PLANS, and I couldn’t be happier. I am excited to veg out, relax, go hiking, drink coffee, relax, clean (if motivated), and RELAX some more!
We’ve been knee deep learning all about nouns and adjectives, so I figured springtime was a PERFECT opportunity to extend that learning. Tomorrow I am taking my class on a nature walk around school and to our school’s green garden to do some detective work! I plan on giving them the organizer and writing activity found below, and some watercolor paper to illustrate/paint their observations. I’ll post pictures sometime this weekend (if I don’t forget my camera! Why do I always forget it? Eeek!)
Grab your freebies below by clicking on either of the images:
Happy (almost) Friday!

I am loving student teaching and can't wait to have my own classroom next year! I am in 2nd grade and would love to stay with that grade. Do you like your grade?

I must say, it's weird reading your blog because I first think every post is from me! And then I remember that there's another awesome person out there with the same spelling as mine!

Have a great day! Enjoy spring break!
