We are linking up with Doodle Bugs this Friday to bring you a recap of the week in FIVE FOR FRIDAY!!! Since next week is Easter, this week is all about bunnies and spring. Check out some of our ideas below!
Spring Books! The Easter Egg by Jan Brett is such a beautifully illustrated story like the rest of her books! It's a cut story about a bunny named Hoppi who is on the search for the perfect egg for the annual Easter egg contest. Click on the video below to hear the story being read out loud.
Spring Vocabulary! To help us get started, I laminated these spring vocabulary cards so we could trace the words with dry erase markers, erase, and trace again!
Spring Booklet! Over the past week we have had a blast filling out, coloring, cutting/pasting, and putting together our spring booklet!
Spring Math! Ten frames are great for showing order and organization. This week, I wanted to try something new so I found these adorable carrot Easter eggs (dollar store), wrote the numerals onto each carrot so we could match it to the corresponding ten frame and then fill them with the correct number of jelly beans(you could use pom poms or counters as well). Students can really see the quantity and its relation to ten when you use the ten-frames. Click on the image above to see our Spring Literacy & Math Pack!
Since our Snowman Painting was such a huge success, we decided since it's spring, we'd whip up some PEEP PAINT! This is a perfect spring activity for kids.
We mixed together a bottle of white glue, a few squirts of shaving cream, some hot pink paint(use as much as you need until you are satisfied with the color), and 1/2 cup of "crystal clear" glitter. The glue, paint, and shaving cream we purchased at Walmart, the glitter we bought at Michael's Craft Store. Everything was altogether less than $15.

Spring Snack! To top off our spring week, after storytime we mixed up a simple "dirt" snack with chocolate pudding, crushed oreos, and candy gummy worms!
