Spring brings with it both pleasant weather and the interesting dynamic of nearing the end of the school year – which can be exhausting – as well as promises of refreshing classroom ideas. Here are five fun grammar worksheets you can use this spring to improve students' grammar and writing. These printable worksheets are also great to use as early finisher activities!
Five Fun Grammar Worksheets for Spring
#1 Spring Writing Acrostic Poem
Using each letter of the word SPRING, students will write a descriptive word that they connect to the season. Download this simple Spring Acrostic Poem activity and use it in the elementary classroom.
#2 Contraction Flowers Activity
Have students assemble colorful blooms to identify words that form contractions! Students will pair two leaves together that form a contraction and then write the contraction the two words make in the center of a flower.
Once their Contraction Flowers have been assembled, use the flowers to create a blooming bulletin board!
#3 Spring Writing Prompts
Download Six Spring Writing Prompts that address events that are both serious and fun, such as May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Bike Month, and the lesser-known National Hamburger Month.
One of the best things about these spring writing prompts for students is that they can be adapted as a Quickwrite or extended into a more lengthy research project.
#4 Round-Robin Writing Activity
Writing is something that needs to be done daily. Mix things up this spring with a simple Round Robin Writing Activity.
Each student starts with a Round-Robin Writing Stationary and writes one sentence to start their story. When everyone is done, say “pass” and students pass their paper clockwise. Students read the first sentence and add to the story with their own sentence. Continue until there are 5–10 minutes left in class or everyone has written on all the papers.
During the remaining class time, the papers should be returned to the original author. That person can add a few sentences to close the story. Then read the stories out loud or silently to enjoy the products of this class writing session!
Extension: Task the original author with editing the finished story for misspellings and grammar errors.
#5 Plant a Pronoun Garden Activity
Using the Pronoun Garden Worksheet, students will choose a pronoun (he, she, it, they, we) and write it in the center of a flower. Then on each flower petal, students will write one noun they associate with the pronoun on each petal of the flower.
