Hall Display-April

At the beginning of each month, I try to do something poetic or artsy to hang in the hallway. Just coming off Spring Break, I wanted to go easy peasy today, so I taught the phrase, "April Showers Bring May Flowers." I was surprised by how many students said they hadn't heard this phrase, but it was perfect! We had some great discussion about Springtime. Today just so happens to be a really beautiful sun-shiny day and we don't get a lot of rain, so I was thrilled with the kids using Active Thinking Strategies to talk find out more… many questions and connections. Turned into a great simple activity seizing a teachable moment. LOVE those!!

I love your feedback!
Have a great day!

  1. Their pictures look great! You could always bring in spring poems and have them visualize what they see. We sometimes illustrate weather sayings like "It is rainy cats and dogs." They always turn out so cute. =)
