Here's your activity for your notebook today.
What are you most looking forward to in spring?
This can be a list, but make it a list that uses the five senses.
Divide your paper into sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.
Once you get going you may need two papers! It's been months since you've last heard the birds, seen the grass, or smelled the leaves. Imagine for a moment what it would be like to sink your fingers into warm soil. Better yet, remember the sound of baseball bats, or the smell of your leather glove. Access your memory and make your list.
Really. Despite the snow and cold we are almost there.
Outside the classroom window today there were two different kinds of woodpeckers and a flock of bluebirds. They know spring is coming.
