Inking Thoughts: Spring-Time Joy

Springtime Joy
  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: What is your Spring-time joy?
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, crayons
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Reading and Writing Connection: Spring-Time memories… Guide: “Today’s writing is all about your Spring-time treasured memories, hopes, joys, and discoveries.” Encourage them to draft a Haiku poem about a specific Spring-Time joy. Share one of your earliest spring memories. Mine was waiting on my front porch steps for school to begin… because all I needed was a sweater… no bulky coat! No ride to school… I could officially walk down our street, through the alley and straight to the school’s front steps… by myself!
  • Drafting responses: Allow each family member to write their thoughts (10 min). Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe.
  • Finally: Discuss: Let each family member share their “Spring-Time“ creation. Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting.
