Blooming Activities for Amazing ELA Classes This April

April is the month of blooming. Just like me, maybe you are also thinking about the ways in which you can get your students engaged and develop their skills in your ELA class after you come back from the break. If you are looking to put together an efficient April monthly planner for your middle school ELA class, you are in the right place.

If you are like me, you love to have things planned out for every month in advance. However, life sometimes gets in the way and sometimes I do things at the spur of the moment. Having a pack of fresh ideas right at my finger tips helps me every single time.  

So, even if you are a planner or a last-minuter, I want to share with you some plug and play resources that will make this April memorable for your students.
