Spring has arrived! (This is a natural way to say “It’s now Spring!”) Now is the perfect time to learn some English Spring vocabulary. In today’s blog post let’s practice some words we use when Spring arrives.
*For my friends in Australia and Brazil (all of South America), Fall has arrived, not Spring, but we can still practice this vocabulary. You can use it when Spring comes to your part of the world in September.
In English, we often talk about the signs of spring. Signs are things that show us something or give us information.
A sign can be a piece of paper, wood, or metal that has writing or a picture on it that gives you information, instructions, a warning, etc.
②Signs can also be an event, an action, a fact, etc. that shows that something exists, is happening, or may happen in the future
The signs that tell us Spring is coming are things like flowers blooming and plants turning green. Also, lots of insects come around and in many countries (where I’m from for example) birds return for the spring season.
Flowers are blooming and the birds are singing because spring is in the air! This spring bring some fun to your literacy centers in a whole new way with this editable Spring Sight Word Activity!
