I am collecting resources that I think you guys will enjoy for May. Here is a walk through all ELA and Math May activities for kids that work perfectly for teaching during the month of May.
ELA May Activities for Kids
(Link: May Paired Passages)
Reading comprehension is a significant skill necessary for success in elementary schools. Kick-off your May activities for kids with some small group activities. This product comes with five May themed paired sets, which is ten passages. Each set comes with a nonfiction story and a fiction story, plus questions and comprehension work for both. Two sheets work on comparing the fiction and nonfiction stories. This packet is for May themes, which are Teacher Appreciation Week, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Flowers, and Cinco de Mayo.

My small group, early literacy activity pack, brings you 12 different activities to help struggling students. The 12 activities range from syllables to creating simple comprehension. These May activities are best to use in a small group with students to practice their early literacy skills.
Tying Science Into Reading

Spring life cycles are a popular science topic to teach in May because of the new life sprouting! These science resources cover the chicken life cycle, butterfly life cycle, and frog life cycle. These are great topics to teach during the month of May. They are no-prep resources to use during your life cycles unit.

Space Day is on May 3rd, which is an ideal time to teach your space and solar system unit! This no-prep resource unit covers the planets, astronauts, and other space-related concepts.

An Interactive May’ is a way to make your month more engaging and exciting! There are ELA and Math interactive activities. You’ll need spiral-bound notebooks, composition notebooks, or a 3-ring binder with loose-leaf paper.
Flip Book Fun for May
Each of these flipbooks comes with a short passage on the ‘Let’s Read’ page, then follow-up comprehension activity pages. The Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are a bit different from my usual flipbook format because they focus more on being gifts for your students’ moms and dads. The other flipbooks are fantastic because they help practice comprehension skills and writing. May 3rd is Space Day, so don’t forget to use your space flipbook during the month of May! All of my science flipbooks come with an extra page, which covers listing, a vital part of their fact writing skills.
And last but not least is Memorial Day. It’s is at the end of the month. I know that’s a busy time of the year, but it’s still very necessary to remember the importance of that holiday. Check out the flipbooks below!
