Easter Eggs, Stories, Felt Board poems


We had a fabulous time with our homeschooling friends today, we had an Easter party complete with an egg hunt!  Butterfly was in her glory!

Here are a few Easter egg learning activities Butterfly has been keeping busy with and all the stories and felt board poems we've been enjoying.


I took some plastic eggs and a Sharpie and wrote capital letters on the tops and their matching lower case letter on the bottom half of the egg.  I used egg cartons to store these.


We opened them all up and scattered them on a tray.


Butterfly found the upper and lower case matches and put the egg together, placing the finished ones back in the cartons.


Next, we did a simple egg counting activity.  I wrote numbers 0-5 on more eggs.


And I put out the correct number of pom poms on the tray.  Butterfly put 5 pom poms in the number 5 egg, and no pom poms in the number zero egg, ect.



Here is our Sling Book Shelf.  From our big bookcase I pick out books based on the learning theme or holiday we are currently working on, so this week we've had out all of our Easter books!


Here are some of our favourites!


Today is Easter!
Here Comes Easter Bunny
A Dozen Easter Eggs
Easter Parade
The Easter Ribbit


One of our felt board sets are Bunnies!  (I just printed out real bunny pictures on card paper, then laminated them, and stuck felt on the backsides of them.)


  
Here are some of our favourite felt board bunny poems that we say with our bunny set:


Five little bunnies standing by the door,
One hopped away, and then there were four.
Four little bunnies sitting near a tree,
One hopped away, and then there were three.
Three little bunnies looking at you,
One hopped away and then there were two.
Two little bunnies enjoying the sun,
One hopped away, and then there was one.
One little bunny sitting all alone,
He hopped away, and then there were none!


The first little bunny went hop, hop, hop.
I said to the first bunny, "Stop, stop, stop!"
The second little bunny went run, run, run.
I said to the second bunny, "Fun, fun, fun!"
The third little bunny went thump, thump, thump.
I said to the third bunny, "Jump, jump, jump!"
The fourth little bunny went sniff, sniff, snuff.
I said to the fourth bunny, "That is enough!"
The fifth little bunny went creep, creep, creep.
I said to the fifth bunny, "It's time to sleep!"


One little bunny,
Wondering what to do,
another bunny came along,
Then there were two.
Two little bunnies,
Hopping like me,
Another bunny came along,
Then there were three.
Three little bunnies,
Jumping around outdoors,
Another bunny joined them,
Then there were four.
Four little bunnies,
So fluffy and alive,
Another bunny joined them,
Then there were five.
Five little bunnies,
Ready for some fun,
Hopped away in the
Warm, spring sun.


'Hoppy' Easter!!

  2. My family and I bought a Breville juicer and have been juicing as well this year. I would love it if you could post some good recipes that my kids would like as well. They will drink orange and grapefruit juice or apple and celery juice, but that's it so far. Thanks!
