End Of The Rainbow

I saw this on pinterest and had to try. I would definitely encourage this project for  4 year olds. Or if you really wanted to do it with the 3 know it probably won't look like this. Before we started this project I showed the class how to put one heart at a time to form a rainbow.

Faith Lesson Easter

I just love Easter, with the begining of spring its a time to start  fresh and new. Caterpillars turn into butterflies, eggs hatch and flowers grow. Easter egg hunt, bunny rabbit and a hope that Jesus is Alive. The faith lesson this month is a great resource to share the Easter story with young children. The book in our packet tell the Easter story from Mary Magdalene eyes. The story props are a great way to retell the story and encourage the kids to tell the story for you. The songs are a fun way bring the stories alive.

Pot of gold

I just love Saint Patrick's day, maybe because it also my daughters birthday :) The air is crisp the days are bright. I love all the different ideas I can use in the classroom wind, rain, rainbows, shamrocks, leprachans. So many ideas their is never enough time.

Don't be surprised if your class is full of gold glitter at the end of this activity

Using our scissor skills we cut a pot of gold

then traced our name with glue

Then sprinkled glitter to decorate our names.

March Sensory Box

Using Easter grass and gold coins the pandas love digging for treasure.
 I added paper coins with capital and lowercase letters for them to match on shamrocks.
