Spring is in the air and hopefully you’re having spring weather wherever you are. I’m hopeful that the weather will warm up for us sooner than later. Until then, I will continue to look forward to rainbows, mud puddles, bugs, gardening and spending more time outdoors.
Spring means no more winter jackets, warmer weather and jumping in mud puddles. Who isn’t ready for spring? I am. Grab these spring learning printables to get your kids excited about spring.
How to Teach Spring to Little Learners
The seasons – especially spring – can be used to teach many concepts and skills to preschool and kindergarten-aged kids. From the changing of the weather to the rebirth of trees, it can be a fun and exciting time to learn for littles!
Use spring learning printables.
If you haven’t noticed already, I love creating printables, especially the print-n-go type. I have a Spring Learning Pack that is filled with spring-fun printables. What’s included?
You’ll get counting, addition and subtraction worksheets, patterning, number puzzles and writing activities that are perfect for spring for your preschoolers and kindergarten students. And now we have tons more fun printable kindergarten worksheets to share.
My daughter loves the tracing activities and I cut the puzzles out and laminate them so my daughter can use them again. It’s perfect because I find her pulling it out to work on it on her own without me asking.
These printables are only a small sample. If you like this spring learning pack, get the full spring learning pack with 150+ pages of spring printables for preschool and kindergarten kids.
To extend this activity, read your favorite spring books, discuss what happens to the weather in spring, why we see so much rain and even measure how much rain has fallen for a specific amount of time. Discuss the baby animals that you’ll see in the spring. We have tons of ducklings and geese around our parks.
Watch educational videos about spring.
YouTube always has lots of educational videos that can be used for teaching, and there is an overabundance of spring ones. Here are a few of our favorites:
- The Science of Spring
- What Happens in Spring?
- Animals in Spring
- Spring Facts for Kids
- The Signs of Spring
And of course you can’t go wrong with adding books about spring to your lesson plans.
