Taking turns
Spring Time Poem fill in the blank- this was a bit challenging for most of the kids, but they still did a great job. They were able to show me what words were missing from their poem by pointing to the words on the classroom poem. Although they may not have been able to read all the words, they were able to count each word and identify what needed to come next. Many of them struggled with the formation of the letters, but again each one put forth amazing effort!

Adding Spring time stamp art to their papers. 
Various flowers, ladybugs, butterflies etc were used to enhance their poems. 
And, of course, scented stamp pads!
Sight word practice:
Color by number with the sight word like.

Number Writing practice:

For this lesson we listened to a Dr. Jean song about how to write the numbers 1-10.  The students used expo markers to practice their tracing formations.

Royal Wedding day celebration: 
I do not have a good quality camera, but even with how blurry a few of these are you can see how sweet the kids look dancing! Here they are mimicking the waltz from the scene in Cinderella where she dances with the prince at the ball.
