Here are four tricks & tips for Embracing Spring Fever:
When it’s gorgeous out, use it to your advantage! After a long winter in the classroom and countless indoor recesses both you and your students need to get out!! Any time I take my classroom outside my students are on target with our learning! They are focused, engaged, and motivated! Don’t do the same thing each time–switch it up! Do sidewalk chalk words one day.
Grab clipboards and have your students classify living and nonliving things outside.
Students love new things!! Even the same center can get new life by just switching manipulatives or introducing new ones!
Things like utilizing googly eye readers for read to self:
