Easter Fun

Easter is so much fun in the Kindergarten.  It’s such a lovely time, full of hope and anticipation about photo 2-3everything that’s new and growing.  It’s a lot like how we see our Kindergarten children:  we are so full of hope for them as we anticipate their growth and maturity, and we head into our final term together.

We had just a short turnaround from Spring Break to get ready for Easter at school.

 

We created some wonderful art:

We completed our monthly self-portraits with an Easter theme.

We made glitter torn paper eggs for our classroom tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We used pastels to pattern our eggs, and then we gave them a watercolour wash.

And we just had a fun Easter egg hunt where we each looked for one special egg, filled with alphabet letters and chocolate mini eggs. We demonstrated excellent self-regulation, remaining calm and quiet on the carpet as we waited for our friends to find their egg. We didn’t open our eggs until we all returned to the tables.

Then we glued the alphabet letters onto an Easter word puzzle to spell a special message.

 

 

Of course, we read Easter stories from some of our favourite authors:

  • The Easter Egg (Jan Brett)photo 4-2
  • The Chocolate Rabbit (Maria Claret)
  • Quiet Bunny’s Many Colours ((Lisa McCue)
  • Max’s Chocolate Chicken (Rosemary Wells)
  • The Bunny Who Found Easter (Charlotte Zolotow, illustrated by Helen Craig)

We wish you a Happy Easter and hope that all your Chocolate dreams come true!
