NO-PREP SPRING ACTIVITIES FREEBIE


     

     Do you need to harness some of that “Spring Fever” energy in your classroom? Who doesn't?  
     As a veteran teacher, I learned to gather as many quick, fun, low- or no-prep activities as I could to pull out at different times. When we had a few minutes left in class, but not enough time to start something new, when we needed a break from the current lesson, and when we needed a special day focus were all times that I needed an arsenal of activities. The most important thing, however, was that the activities be content-driven, critical-thinking, and/or hands-on. That's a tall order! 
     I've put together some of my best activities in a Spring Freebie for you! Check out this list, then hop over to my TPT store to download the free product.  

 QUICK, NO-PREP ACTIVITIES


Make a list of ways that you used math before school today.
Using only the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4, once each, how many other numbers can you find? Use any operations in any combination. Start by trying to get values of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. Can you find others? For example, (4+1)-(2+3)=0 and (2x3)-(4+1)=1
Write the words “Spectacular Spring” and see how many words you can generate from the letters. Use them in any order. Examples are: tape, ring, crate
Sit very still (indoors or out-of-doors) and just listen. Make a list of all the sounds that you hear. It’s a fun idea to do this activity twice, once indoors and once out-of-doors and compare your lists.
Alphabet Antics: Write the alphabet down the side of a sheet of paper. Think of one or more words, or a phrase, that relate to a particular theme. Spring words might be A-animals born, B-bees, C-chicks, D-days are longer.
Squiggle Pictures: Every student draws a squiggle on a sheet of paper. Trade papers. The recipient turns his/her squiggle into a Spring picture. Add color and display.
Do you need some writing or math opportunities? Check out these fun, but content-driven activities.
