This Spring Literacy Centers set includes procedural writing, opinion writing, short non-fiction reading comprehension passages and questions, and other unique ways to teach writing. Earth Day, lifecycles and baby animals.


Using literacy centers in your classroom is a powerful way for students to actively engage in the learning and build off the learning of others through conversations and interactions. Many of these literacy centers can also be used as whole class lessons.

Features of this resource:


Funky and Fresh Opinion spring-based journal prompts


Procedural scenarios that promote thinking

How does a plant grow? Plant needs and lifecycle.

Earth Day task cards that promote thinking


Narrative writing (prewriting planning page included)

Using a paper clip, students will spin a character, a setting and a problem. (Writing paper is also included.)


Reading Comprehension passages

Baby Animal Snip-its: Where Real Meets "I wonder"

Students read a short passage of interesting information/facts about baby animals in the spring: foals, kids (baby goats), lambs, and piglets.

  • students choose their own favorite 3 facts from the reading to write about
  • each set of reading also has a thought-provoking critical thinking question to answer (For example, on the pig page, the question tells students that pigs are actually smart and asks them to think about what they are smart at.)

You will love how fantastically versatile this resource is for all your spring-related classroom lessons!
