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!
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
