Kindergarten Springtime Fun – Writing prompts, printables and more

Posted on March 17th, 2011 by Carolyn Hart in Free Printable Rhymes, Songs and Fingerplays for Children, Spring Children's Books, Learning Games and Printables

Celebrate warmer days with some kindergarten springtime fun

Here are some ideas to help you celebrate the first days of spring…

Choose a “spring” word and see how many words you can spell with the letters –
For example: daffodils fad, fads, oil, soil, foil, Dad, lid, lids, slid

Make a Venn diagram and compare Spring with Fall – what do you see in Spring but not in Fall? What do you see in both Spring and Fall?

See how many Spring compound words you can discover? Here are some to get you started – buttercup, butterfly, ladybug, raindrop, raincoat, rainbow, sunshine

Try one of these story starters –
The first sign of spring…. Planting a magic seed…. My friend’s amazing umbrella… Five new baby chicks… When I looked up at the clouds… Jumping in puddles on my way home… Yesterday we saw a rainbow…

Make a colourful poster and advertise Spring. Use words and pictures to explain what is special about spring.

  1. Susan Stephenson, the Book Chook

    I truly love the idea of having a theme like Spring, and reinforcing literacy activities by linking them to that theme. Your ideas include word play and writing prompts too, ideas that we can slot into just a few moments in a busy day. Great!

      Thanks Susan – was very interested to read your post today (about bullying), you do such a thorough job when you write. Keep up the great work!

    These are all great spring activity ideas! Thanks for sharing them!

      Lovely to see your post about examing a tree that is just about to bud. Good luck finding a child-friendly microscope!

    That sounds like a lot of fun with a child who is already confident in their reading skills. I’ll have to bookmark this activity for next year. Hopefully, my gal will be at that stage soon 🙂
