Teacher-Recommended Spring Reads

By Kriscia Cabral
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5

    I broke into my collection of spring books and started thinking about the world outside of my classroom door. Getting lost in thoughts of plants and new life and the great outdoors seems a natural path to take around this time of year. And while I was musing on things green, I imagined that many of you are doing the same.

    What are some go-to spring reads that you take out every year? Why do you choose those books? I took a little trip around my school and asked the teachers I work with the same question. Here is a short video that is a result of that simple query: recommendations and a few activities that come from some of the best teachers I know!

     

     

    Some other suggestions that were shared include:

     

    Harvesting Hope by: Kathleen Krull

     

    Weslandia by: Paul Fleischman

     

    Make Way for Ducklings by: Robert McCloskey

     

    The Tiny Seed by: Eric Carle

     

    Bently & egg by: William Joyce

    What books are on your “must-read” spring book list? I’d love to add to mine! Feel free to share!

    Thank you for reading!

     

    Smiles,
