Spring Freebies!

Is it really Spring already?  I love the feel of Spring in Southern California... then again, when did Winter ever arrive?  I'm a little sad to see this school year passing by so quickly.  My group of students this year is really sweet and hard to let go of.  I love them so much... I wonder how often a teacher can think this way about her students throughout her career?

On another note, I've been very MIA from blogging because I've just been contracted to write 4 Language Arts books for Teacher Created Resources.  I'm very humbled, yet ecstatic and overwhelmed with joy for this opportunity.  I'm also very short on time, so I'm praying through this whole experience.  Next year, you'll be able to find my books in stores like Barnes & Noble and Lakeshore.   I can't stop praising my Lord Jesus Christ every time I think about it.

Well, in celebration of my favorite season, here are a few Spring freebies for your classroom:

1) A Spring graphic organizer on writing a how-to paragraph:

2) This is a Christian-themed word search for Easter/Spring:

And, if you're looking for a fun packet of Spring activities, I have just the thing!  For $1, you can purchase my Spring Fun packet on TPT:

I just love flowers and we're about to start writing a how-to expository paper on how to plant a flower in my own class room.  I'll be taking my students to the Carlsbad Flower Fields to get a hands-on experience, which seems pretty fitting.  They have an excellent field trip program for schools:
