Spring “Find It” Writing Center Activity
It’s time to get those busy bodies up and moving around the classroom!
You can have children work in pairs and turn this into a game of “hide and seek” or simply place this activity in your literacy center as an independent center activity.
Let’s get started with some simple supplies!
- Spring “FIND IT” Printable Coloring Page (at the end of the post)
- 8 Spring Word Vocabulary Cards (laminated, cut-out – at the end of the post)
- Tape or Velcro
- Clipboard (Amazon has 30 packs if you don’t have a class set yet – they are handy!)
How to Use the Spring “Find It” Printable Pages
This activity is suitable for Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms. You can use this in your homeschool or traditional classroom as a reader’s workshop or writing center activity.
If you decide to make this a center activity, just remember to scatter the words around the classroom before school starts.
You can use either tape or velcro if you like to keep your write the room cards in similar locations throughout the year.
My favorite way to use this Spring Find It Activity is in pairs.
Once the spring vocabulary cards are printed and cut out partner #1 uses a small piece of tape to scatter the cards around the classroom by taping them to the walls, cabinets or shelves.
Partner #2 should turn his/her back so they can’t see where partner #1 places the spring vocabulary cards.
Partner #2 then uses the recording sheet and a clipboard to find the spring vocabulary cards scattered around the classroom.
When partner #2 finds a vocab card he/she should read the word out loud, find it on their coloring page, and color the picture that matches the vocab card.

Tip: For an extra challenge, children can write the word next to the picture when they find it and color it in!
As partner #2 finds each vocabulary card, they hand it to partner #1 and he/she places them back in the writing center so that partner #2 has a chance to hide the vocab cards for partner #1.
The activity continues until both partners have had a chance to hide the spring vocabulary cards and find them on the spring coloring printable.
