Spring Lesson Plans

Wild lesson plans for preschool teachers.

When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes

Spring Books for Kids

When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes delivers a story filled with captivating language about the wonders of spring—if you can wait for them. 


The birds will hatch, the sprouts will grow, the rain will come, and the world will turn green. The pages filled with alliteration about all of the things that come with spring spark so much joy.


Fletcher and the Springtime blossoms

by Julia Rawlinson

Another great choice for your spring books for kids is Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms by Julia Rawlinson. 

Even though the weather is warming up, Fletcher spots snow in the orchard and warns all of his friends to prepare for another winter. Just as everyone starts to get ready, they discover another surprise—the snow is just one of spring’s astonishments: blossoms.


Bird Builds A Nest

by Martin Jenkins

Bird Builds a Nest by Martin Jenkins tells the story of a bird building her nest from start to finish. 


She has to gather the twigs, weave them together, and add soft grass and feathers to her nest. After a hard day’s work, her nest is complete and ready for eggs! 

I love how this book explains how a nest is made in clear, easy-to-understand language for our little learners.


The Thing About Spring by Daniel Kirk

Spring Books for Kids

The Thing About Spring by Daniel Kirk is a heartwarming story that celebrates the arrival of spring. 


As the snow melts away, most animals eagerly embrace the wonders of the new season. From budding sprouts to sunshine, the story highlights the joy and excitement that springtime brings. 


It’s exciting for everyone except Rabbit, who loves so many things about winter that he can’t see the joy of spring. That is until his friends show him.


Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt

by Kate Messner

Next, we read Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt by Kate Messner. Up in the garden, the sprouts are growing, the flowers are blossoming, and the vegetables are ripening. Below, we explore the hidden world of animals and insects living and burrowing in the dirt. 


I love how we get to take a peek into something that is so familiar, yet, we have never really seen with our own eyes.
