5 Engaging French Spring Activities for Reading and Writing

Seasonal activities are a fun way to introduce new vocabulary and strengthen students’ literacy skills. Especially when working with French Immersion students, a theme can add context to new words and create meaning – which helps with language acquisition! I want to share five of my favourite French spring activities for reading and writing that you can use this year.

#1 Spring Literacy Games – Great for vocabulary building

This French Spring Games Bundle will add some excitement to your literacy lessons. The bundle comes with three literacy games, like Bingo and Bang!, plus a pack of puzzles. The games focus on spring vocabulary words, like du gazon and des bourgeons. 

Use the French spring games bundle during whole group lessons to reinforce what you taught or as a hands-on small group activity to challenge students’ skills. I even keep the Bingo cards to pull out for a quick review at the end of class when we have a few extra minutes!

#2 Early Finisher Activities – make learning about spring fun

You and I both know the importance of making the most of your time in the classroom! With this French Early Finishers Bundle, you’ll have access to 10 no-prep activities you can use to keep students learning and engaged. 

These activities are all spring-themed, of course, and include items like direct drawings, crafts, mystery images, I Spy, and more! You can also use these activities in other parts of your classroom, like centres, morning work, and more. I like to add these to an early finishers activities bin, along with task cards, so they are easy to grab.

#3 Writing Centres – a perfect French writing activity for spring!

French writing is one of those skills you have to practice (and then practice some more)! These No-Prep Writing Centres are great for grades K-1 and students who are just learning to write.

Inside this bundle, you’ll get access to eleven writing centres, including alphabet writing, list creating, editing, and more. Some of the activities are differentiated, so you can adapt the activities to you and your students’ specific needs. I also included a spring-themed dictionary page, so you can easily scaffold the French writing process for students.

#4 Boom Cards – French spring activities that make learning interactive

Want to take your French reading activities digital? If your class has access to iPads or Chromebooks, then you’ll love using these French Literacy Boom Cards. The Boom Cards include 78 task cards in total!

This bundle comes with four activity packs: count the syllables, write the word, match the picture, and comprehension. Boom Cards turn your ordinary French reading activities into something interactive and hands-on while also giving students immediate feedback when they get questions right or wrong.
