Tot School Spring/Easter Recap

 

Here’s a recap of what we were able to do this month!

Bible Verse: “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said!” Matthew 28:6 – I forgot to focus on this verse, but we really were able to learn the resurrection story.

A great adaptation for the Easter Bunny.

I also love this toddler version of Resurrection Eggs.

Loved this Easter Advent – The first day included a Resurrection Set (like a nativity set) that we were able to use to practice telling the Easter story. So great! I’m planning to do a full post on just this soon!

Books: 

Love this link of Christ-centered Easter books – hoping to find some on Amazon.

My Easter Basket was our favorite!

Other books I’ll look for at the library:

  • Easter Bugs – David A. Carter – couldn’t find it?!
  • Bunny’s Noisy Book – Margaret Wise Brown – loved it!
  • The Tale of Peter Rabbit- Beatrix Potter – a little too long…
  • The Flopsy Bunnies – Beatrix Potter – same as above
  • What Does Bunny See? – Linda Sue Park – cute for colors

Color Focus: Reviewing all colors (maybe introduce the idea of “pastel”) – skipped this – oops!

Shape Focus: Oval – Stickers activity – did this last year

Oval sheet – last year

Letter Focus: Ee

Ee Flashcards– maybe we’ll get to these this week

Easter Coloring Pages – only a few links worked

E Is For Egg Coloring Page – she loved this and sent it to work with her dad

Music: Grooveshark Playlist

taken from this blog

1 ¼ c. flour
½ c. cocoa powder
½ c. salt
½ T. cream of tartar
1 ½ T. cooking oil
1 c. boiling water
Mix the dry ingredients. Add the oil and boiling water. Stir quickly, mixing
well. When cool, mix with your hands.

Math:

Cross Color Puzzles – good practice! Fair liked this!

Color Matching (eggs with pompons) – fun, but we focused more on the numbers this year instead of matching.

Snowball Catch –  Changing it to work with eggs/pompons – not her favorite game ever
Write numbers in the bottom of each section of an empty egg carton.
Have each child put 1 snowball (cotton ball) in the egg carton. Close
the cover and shake it. Then open it up and see which number it landed
in. Then ask child to count out that many snowballs.

Would love to do a tonging activity of some kind –
