Each month this school year, I will be uploading a clickable PDF themed around that month. There will be twenty ideas on that page that will link you to a post, idea, resource, freebie, quote, etc. from my blog or store. Each month will be a new collection of ideas, both old and new, and I hope it will help make the school year and planning easier to navigate.
Be sure to download the calendar page from my TpT Store HERE each month when it's released. It's a clickable PDF, so you will be redirected to my blog, TpT Store, or another website for all of the information when you click the small image.
While I have themed many of the months around holiday items, there are also plenty of ideas geared towards other academic areas, like nonfiction, getting ready for state tests, and more. And if these don't align with your own scope and sequence, hopefully a few can add to your bag of tricks when you do cover those topics in your own classroom.
Today I'm offering the calendar of April, which you can find in my TpT Store HERE.
Monthly Thoughts: April

As with many of the holidays throughout the year, you can find Earth Day-themed Word Work and Writing Prompts, as well as QR Codes for math computation practice, Brain Breaks, Technology Resources, and thought-provoking Did You Know? Facts. And if you're as excited for the warmer weather as I am, you'll find season-long activities in all of my Spring-themed resources as well.
You can also find the link to some of my favorite read alouds for this time of year, for both Earth Day and Poetry. Because it's National Poetry Month, you can find ideas for both technology and hands-on poetry practice as well.
There's plenty more, so take your pick and click away to find more information on any and all of the images you see.
Download HERE and enjoy! I hope these ideas will get you excited for the month ahead!
