The Easter Story

Materials: Index cards or rectangles of paper, glitter glue, dried beans, or dried pasta, glue

 

Use materials such as glitter glue or dried beans to create textured words and letters. For younger students, choose letters that have significance for Easter such as “C for cross” or “J for Jesus.” Students can trace the letters with their fingers to practice the shape. Older students can work to create the letters or words independently.

Materials: Painter’s Tape, paint or other coloring items, paper (cardstock or cardboard will hold up best)

Using painter’s tape, create an outline of a cross in the center of the paper. Have your child paint or color the background. Once it is colored or the paint has dried, carefully pull off the tape to reveal a cross.

Extension Activities

Read the classic “Tale of Peter Rabbit.” Parents can read this to their children or there is a “read aloud” option on the website

https://bygosh.com/kids-classics/the-tale-of-peter-rabbit/

 

While you’re reading ask your child:

Why did Peter feel sick? (He ate too much)

Would you want to go to Mr. McGregor’s Garden?

Do you think Peter learned his lesson?

Practice simple counting use dry beans or carrot pictures/ cutouts. 

 

Practice counting to five by telling your child the number of times they need to “hop like a bunny.” For example, say “hop 4 times” and have your child hop while you count to 4. Your child can also count for you as you hop. 

      Image result for hopping math game preschool

 

Materials:

Marker or Pen, Paper plate or paper circle

  • Write the letters of your child’s name on individual plates or small cutout circles. Have your child hop from letter to letter to spell their name

Make a map of Mr. McGregor’s Garden. Use a plain piece of paper and draw various size squares on it. Look back in the story with your child to see what kinds of plants were growing in the garden (lettuce, cabbage, parsley). Have children color it.
