It's almost Easter....and a FREEBIE!

Yup, one more week! And then it's Easter!

We were busy, busy, busy in our classrooms this week getting ready for this special holiday.
 

We have a wonderful (and artistic!) volunteer in the KG classes, Ms. Josie.
I've written about her before because she is just so amazing!
She made these cute little lambs with the students and turned them into a fabulous display!
(Oh, and she drew the large Jesus coming out of a tomb FREEHAND!)
 
The students made adorable palms to celebrate Palm Sunday (which is tomorrow).
These were so easy to make...we used a strip of tag manila paper down the middle and we glued on strips of green construction paper in the shape of a "V". 
 
 We also made these marble paint crosses.  Another fun and easy craft! 
 
We discussed the many symbols of Easter.  We cut out the pictures and wrote the words beside using our very best "kid-writing" in our journals.
 
Here is our Write the Room Easter activity.  This student is working on finding words and sorting them according to the number of syllables.
This activity is from my Write the Room Easter pack.
 
 This is my student teacher, Ms. Bucci, reading Mouse's First Spring to the students as she discussed the first day of spring.  She just started with me this past week and she is doing such a great job!
I love how she asked the children to act out various parts of the story with her!
 
Finally, I want to leave you with an activity we will be doing next week...for your pocket chart.
The students will read the sentence, find the colored egg and count the dots on it.  I have included everything you need, including a follow-up worksheet, FREE!

I linked up with a bunch of other teachers also sharing Easter freebies through Elementary Matters.  Be sure to check them out!
 
 
Have a wonderful weekend!
