Spring is my favorite season to teach! And what better way to kick off Spring with some Spring Freebies! Spring is filled with warm weather, flowers, and sunny days. In the classroom, we spend an entire week learning about flowers. We dive deep into learning about what flowers need and how they grow. We read all the books we can to learn more about flowers.
To go along with all of our fun Spring learning, I wanted to share some fun Spring freebies that require no prep! Just print, add to your math and literacy centers, and you are good to go for the week. All you need is some fun Spring mini erasers or counters and you are ready! If you are anything like me, then you have a full stock of these laying around. And if not, no worries, I got you covered in the download.
This free spring resource pack has 5 different activities that you can use in your math and literacy centers! They can be played independently or with a partner. These would also be great to use in your guided math or literacy groups! Students can use mini erasers or any other small manipulative for each activity in this pack.
Spring Freebies Activity #1 – Count and Cover
Students will pick a mat and a set of small counters or manipulatives to use. They will look at each number on the mat and count out that many manipulatives to place in each box. I love to use mini erasers since you can fit quite a few of them in each box. This is a great activity for helping students work on one-to-one correspondence and counting.
Spring Freebies Activity #2 – Flower Ten Frame
In this hands-on math center, students will pick a ten frame mat and a set of small counters. They will look at the number on the mat and using the counters, show that number on the ten frame. Another great activity for counting and one-to-one correspondence.
For students that are ready for a challenge, ask them to figure out how many more are needed to make 10. They can practice writing these simple equations on a whiteboard.
Spring Freebies Activity #3 – Flower Letters
I really love using these letter mats during our literacy centers. Students will pick a letter mat and a set of small manipulatives. They will create each letter as they fill the inside of the letter. I use mini erasers because they are smaller and fit better inside each letter. you can also use playdough or sticky yarn for this activity too.
Spring Freebies Activity #4 – Flower Addition
Help your students get an understanding of addition concepts with these spring addition mats. Students will get the addition mat and a set of counters. They will roll a dice and place that number of counters in the first flower pot. They will roll again and place that number of counters in the second flower pot. Students will then write an addition sentence to show how many counters they have.
Help your students with making and identifying patterns with this spring patterning activity. Students will get a set of three different types of counters. Students will look at the type of pattern on the side of each row and use the counters to create that pattern.
You can grab all of these activities in the Free Spring Resource Pack by signing up for my newsletter below! Hope you and your students have a great spring!
