Despite being stuck at home due to coronavirus, we are thankfully not stuck inside! The weather here in North Carolina is just lovely, and the kids and I are enjoying being outside in all of the springy goodness.
So with springtime comes the onslaught of spring worksheets and printables, right?
Through the years, I’ve published a plethora of spring worksheets and activities, so make sure you browse through all of the oldies but goodies.
Today’s packet is something new to Mama’s Learning Corner – Spring Directed Draw and Write worksheets. I’m so excited about them!

Writing, math, color by code, and more.
Practice Writing Sentences
It’s important for my children to understand and prove they can consistently write adequate sentences. Without writing sentences well, they will struggle to write paragraphs, or stories, or essays well in later years.
Even though I didn’t understand the importance of this fundamental skill in my early homeschool years, I definitely recognize the importance of the basic sentence as a more experienced homeschool mother.
As a result, sentence writing is a daily habit here at the Hill House.
And these Spring Directed Draw and Write worksheets will help you young ones with sentence construction as well. They have the added bonus of an area for your child to draw a springy picture. Super fun!
Spring Directed Draw and Write Worksheets
I love it when children can practice numerous skills with one activity. It’s win-win for everyone!
This set of draw and write worksheets focuses on several aspects of learning – handwriting, fine motor skills, constructing a sentence and writing it on paper, vocabulary practice, and spelling.
Whew! That’s a lot for one printed piece of paper!
Each page in this packet focuses on one spring themed picture. Your child draws each picture according to the steps outlined.
Using the included word bank, your child then writes a sentence or two about the picture.
You’ll find elementary ruled lines as well as plain lines included for each picture.
I think you could use this with children as young as Kindergarten, and even up to 3rd or 4th grade if sentence writing is still a struggle.
Directed drawing pictures include:
- Bird’s Nest
The packet includes 10 worksheets with elementary ruled lines and the same 10 worksheets with plain lines for older students. Just print the 10-page set that is best for your children.
All Access Pass members can download this entire 20-page packet in the All Access Pass area.
Ideas for Using Spring Directed Draw and Write Worksheets
Need a few ideas? Choose from any of those options to use this set of worksheets:
→ Three-hole punch the pages and make a spring drawing booklet. Make a construction paper cover and just tie with yarn. Easy!
→ Use these as a week-long writing project and assign 1-2 each day.
→ Place pages in your Spring literacy centers.
→ Use these pages as a daily teaching tool. Compose a sentence together and write on the white board. Identify the subject and predicate, a direct object, adjectives and adverbs, or any other parts of the the sentence your students struggle with. This is also a great time to remind students about correct capitalization and punctuation.
→ Here’s a neat idea if you’re using these as a daily teaching tool: Write your child’s sentence on the white board. Now ask him, “What adjective could we add to your sentence?” or “What adverb would make this sentence even better?” or for older students “How can I add an appositive to this sentence?” or “What could I add to this sentence to make a compound predicate?” These worksheets are quite versatile to use with a wide variety of grades and stages. Just cater it to your students!
