Kindergarten ELA Spring Activities



This Kindergarten ELA Spring Activities pack is filled with ELA activities for kindergartners. There are spring themed activities for each of the six Common Core Standards domains (RL, RI, L, SL, RF, and W). Your students will practice their ELA standards while incorporating the spring theme as well. This will take some of the stress off of your plate by providing you with standards-based and Common Core-aligned seasonal activities!
Each domain will have 3-4 activities. The domains are Reading Literature, Reading Informational, Writing, Speaking and Listening, Language, and Foundational Skills. There will be a mix of hands-on partner, whole group, and independent activities.
