With the flowers are starting to blossom and bloom and the days are getting longer, it is hard not get to hopeful that those summer days are just around the corner. Last week was my district’s spring break and while I am sad to have had left the Hawaiian sun behind, I am ready to start April with a little pep in my step (with a much needed coffee in my hand, of course!). I’ll be sure to post pictures from my Spring Break vacation in another post as well. It’s hard to believe I will be back there in 4 short months to get married!
If you’re like me and these are your first days back from break, you’re definitely going to need some activities to get you through the next couple of days or maybe even the next couple of weeks. With Earth Day just around the corner, I decided to update my Earth Day packet to add a greater variety of activities that you can use with multiple ages and to address different goals such as sequencing, compare and contrast, sorting, and so much more. One part of the packet that my students have been enjoying the most is making the Earth Day craftivity. I feel that it is important to instill in our kiddos that they can do their part to keep Earth beautiful and that they can take ownership when it comes to protecting our environment.
