Bunnies, chicks and eggs...oh my! {freebie}

It all started 2 weeks ago...
I was grocery shopping with my three and a half year old  daughter which means that we must make our way to the Dollar Section in the middle of the store.
Good thing I did...I found the cutest little Easter egg tongs and small foam eggs!
That got me thinking....and creating....and I came up with this...
(Click on the picture for your free copy)
This is a *freebie* from my new unit,
Easter Literacy and Math Activities.
I kept on thinking and creating and it turned into a whole bunch of stuff!
I love putting fine motor activities out for my students to work with each week.  So I took those cute little multicoloured foam eggs and some plastic tweezers and created a centre.  Set the timer and see how many colored eggs your students can pick up.  Use this worksheet to record answers.  You can even have students pick up only a certain colour egg as well. I put the eggs in a shallow basket (another purchase from the Dollar Section that day!).
So much fun!
I'll be using this activity in my class in the next couple of weeks.
As for the rest of this week, my March Break has flown by!
I've convinced by husband to take tomorrow off so we will take the kiddies somewhere...not sure yet, but it'll be fun 'cause it's a day out!
So if you are thinking ahead and planning for Easter, you might want to check out my new unit,
I'll be preparing everything in it for my students this weekend.  Before we know it, Easter will be here!
It's full of bunnies, chicks, eggs and more!
{There is nothing religious in this package}....
I do have lots of crafts and activities that we do reflective of the religious theme and I will post those as we get closer to Easter as a freebie.

I'd love to give this unit away to the first 3 people to comment below telling me what they love most about Easter (for me, it's all about the chocolate eggs! YUM!)

  6. I will go and check it out! Way to go for getting it finished and posted so early.
    I hope you have a wonderful day with your family tomorrow!
    I know I am not in the top 3, but I wanted share that I LOVE Easter because my daughter still likes the egg hunt and getting a basket. We will be visiting my son down at his college, so that is wonderful. Of course I love the true reason for Easter the most!
