I designed my Spring Language Notebooks for busy school-based SLPs working with mixed language groups in early elementary. They are fun, common core aligned (K-2) activities, and provide a valuable link between home & school.
This packet is included as part of a much larger money-saving value bundle. The bundle contains 5 packets. One for each of the 4 seasons plus a 5th “year-round packet”. This means you have more than enough material to use these every week of the year if you wish.
“These are just what I was looking for to target multiple goals while keeping everyone in my mixed language groups engaged and working. Students who finish early can color and expand their writing while others get more 1:1 practice. Great product!”

20 pages of photo instructions are included for this section including an ideas bank where you can easily view multiple options for each page.
“This is fantastic! The materials are wonderful, but the best part is the visuals you provided for all of the different ways you can use these. It will be so easy to target what each child needs in the group! One can be working on increasing vocabulary for the theme, another can work on their pronouns, and a third can be doing verbs! Just wonderful! I can’t wait to see how the other themes turn out!”
