May Resource Roundup and Freebies for K-3

May resources roundup for the elementary classroom.

I have done many roundups in 2017 and updated them over the years. However, for some reason, I never added a May or an End of the Year roundup, so it’s time to add one in. I am collecting resources that I think you guys will enjoy for May. The End of the Year resource round-up with freebies will come out next week!

ELA resources.
Teacher Appreciation Paired Passages Paired Texts for nonfiction and fiction reading comprehension.
May Small Group Activities to help students practice early literacy.

Reading comprehension is a significant skill necessary for success in elementary schools. 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.

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.

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!

Mother's Day activ reading activity with follow-up Mother's Day comprehension and writing activities.
