Free Preschool Printables for Spring Preschool Theme
In literature, the winter season is often used as a metaphor of despair and hopelessness. Storylines set in winter are often about death, old age, pain, loneliness, and despair.
We go to less social gatherings. We spend less time outside. We eat more and exercise less. What with the constant gray skies and winds that chill you to the bone, winter can be difficult.
Which is why the first signs of spring as always so welcome.
Spring themes in literature often refer to love, hope, youth, and growth. Poets like Walt Whitman, Amy Lowell, and Robert Burns use lilac blossoms as a seasonal symbol for ongoing hope and renewal.
And that IS how we feel, don’t we?
We see the first crocus bloom through the last of the snow, and we feel hopeful of warm weather and new splashes of color. The farm store start bringing in the baby animals and we feel that sense of growth, renewal, and sometimes even rebirth.
I don’t know about you, but when I start doing my preschool lesson plans for my Spring Theme, I also feel a sudden renewal of enthusiasm, too.
Does that happen to you, too?
