Spring is in the air!!!

I can hear the birds.  I can feel the breeze and the warm sun.  I can almost smell the grass that will soon need to be cut.  Spring has arrived and I am LOVING it.  Most of you know that I'm a Busy Beatrice with soccer, softball, 4H, volunteering when I can, baking, and not to mention I'm a mom/teacher.  Can someone please tell me what I was thinking volunteering my hubby and I to coach soccer too?? EGADS!  Then poor hubby is coaching softball as well.  I'm thinking we need a little vacation in the camper soon.....mmm S'mores are calling my name!  As a matter of fact, we went out to enjoy the country yesterday and it was very much needed!  It's time to get all my end of the year work prepped so I can begin enjoying my family on the weekend.   But then I thought---you all that have been with me ALSO need a break.  SOOO---I'm thinking that maybe you need to have a few ready to go freebies to make your life less hectic too.  I mean friends, we ARE close to summer break....but who's counting (uhm, me...37 WOOT WOOT!)

So without further ado.....

My kiddos have been a little rowdy during our workstation/center time lately, so I'm hoping that these will be a quieter activity.  There are 3 versions of a Spring Reader inside this download.  One is a read and write.  One is a cut/paste, and the last is a simple predictable reader.  
Differentiated Readers
 If you are interested in checking out the readers, please click the image above to be redirected to TpT for your FREEBIE! :) 

My kiddos are still struggling with capitalization and punctuation on their own.  Why is it they ALWAYS remember when I prompt and can chime in unison, but on their own...they forget.  So we are going to work on some of our Sentence Puzzles---with a Spring Theme! :)
