Spring / Easter Basket Writing Activities

Who doesn't look forward to and love Spring?  We get to finally kiss winter good-bye for another year and enjoy the new flowers, warm days, and the end of the school year in sight!

Hard to believe Easter is also just a little over a week away.  I have created a fun Spring or Easter writing packet based on a couple of my favorite writing activities that I did with my firsties the last couple of years.

It includes a spring basket book to make based on Brown Bear, Brown Bear.  Each page changes what is in the basket.  I made a color and black-and-white version of a completed story (by me) to read as an example before the students start theirs.  There is both an 81/2 x 11 and a 5x7 option.

The second writing activity is a 5 senses poem about spring on tulip-shaped paper.  I have included a sheet with the writing prompt, one with a half-sheet of lines and one with a full sheet of lines.  This makes a really pretty writing bulletin board.  See below for student sample.

I will You can get this writing packet from my TpT store.  Just click on a photo to link to my store.

The first three people who comment with there email addresses will get this FREE.  

What is one of your favorite Spring writing projects?

Have fun teaching,
