The Easter Egg
Spring Books!


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!




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



Spring Booklet! Over the past week we have had a blast filling out, coloring, cutting/pasting, and putting together our spring booklet


Spring Math!



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!

PEEP Paint!


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.

St. Patrick's Day Freebie!   Ten frames are great for showing order and organization. Students can really see the quantity and its relation to ten when you use the ten-frames. To make our St. Patrick's Day ten-frame counting even more meaningful, we used our green thumbs! Combining art and math is so much fun!Click on the image below to grab this St. Patrick's Day Freebie!

Skittles Science!






St. Patrick's Day Science!  Do skittles dissolve faster in hot or cold water?  





All you need for this easy science experiment is:

 -skittles (we used the original and the dessert flavored skittles)
-cups
 -cold water
 -hot water


First, we sorted our skittles by color. Next, we filled an empty cup with hot water and then another cup with cold water.  Finally, we placed one skittle in each cup of water and watched!

Leprechaun Snack!



Leprechaun Snack!  To end our St. Patrick's week, we mixed up a simple snack with some vanilla greek yogurt and green food coloring and topped it off with some Lucky Charms(you can also use vanilla pudding)!
