Easter Projects Post # 2

Easter is only one week away!
Each year, I put sight words and sentences in plastic eggs and have the kids go on an Easter egg hunt on the playground. When we come back in, kids have to read the words/sentences to an adult.
Children also read them to a partner, write them and use the words/sentences in journals. Kids get an Easter treat for all their hard work. This way, it's not all about the sugar. They have a blast and still work on academics!
Easter Chicks
We also have lots of fun making Easter projects.
Last week, kids made a cute Easter chick project. For this, we used paper plates,  markers, construction paper, glue, brads and feathers.
I gave each child a paper plate and told them that these are pretend eggs that they can color however they choose to. They did such a nice job coloring them and creating pretty patterns and designs!
We talked about Easter chicks hatching and cracking the eggs. We cut the paper plates and added brads.
They cut out chicks out of construction paper and added feathers.
They turned out very cute!
Easter Eggs
Another project was making mozaic Easter eggs out of construction paper. We made similar projects for Valentine's, Halloween, and Christmas. Ripping the paper into small pieces is great for small motor development.
I traced eggs on white construction paper then gave children lots of colorful construction paper pieces to choose from.

I hope you like these. Check out my other Easter project post for a very cute Easter bunny headband.
Here is a great Easter decodable focused on sight words and pronouns. Kids will LOVE reading it! It provides excellent reading practice and the opportunity to understand the correct use of pronouns in context.
