Easter Resources

March has been a busy month! For Easter, with only a week and a half between it and St. Patrick’s Day, we are doing a family lapbook. Which means another resource entry! Books:

Worksheets:

Crafts

Games

Movie

  • ‘Twas the Night Before Easter with Veggie Tales and the colouring page that goes with
  • Dinosaur Train Eggstravaganza by PBS kids… not so much Easter but egg and baby related. Lots of fun as it tied in eggs, new birth and our beloved dinsaurs

Printables in General

Helpful information sites

Videos Ken found us this informative but slightly over the boys’ heads video on Easter traditions. Very interesting but maybe not for the youngest students.

And a picture of two of our lapbook pages! Good luck! 

We had a lot of fun with this unit

Post Easter Break Down

For all of our Easter resources please refer to the blog entry titled “Easter Resources“.

April 1-2

Not emotional but educational… and more importantly – LAUNDRY!

Looks like an episode out of hoarding but it actually is a week and a half of laundry for 7!

We tricked/convinced the twins to watch half of the first load!

But first… MONDAY… April Fools was a non issue here… except for Anthony (god son) contacting a bunch of people with his joke and getting trouble with his mom. I don’t talk to the kids about it at this point. We have enough problems with behaviours right now, I would rather not tempt fate! BUT we did make our April poster… again talking about spring is still somewhat theoretic but we managed.

April

We started working on our Easter assembly only to RUN OUT of glue stick!!! WHAT??? I could have sworn that I had enough to last a while yet. Which means I probably do but have misplaced where I put them. So instead we started on Wild Kratts… 3 episodes!

Bats

Zebra

Firefly

The boys worked on copywork out of our Julie Andrews’ Treasury – The Easter Bunny by Rupert S. Holland.

Poetry

We also had some Easter games I picked up at the Dollar Tree.

Gaming together

Emanuel got a head start on the penguins with his own two page illustration.

Penguins at play

Tuesday was a Ken at work day, and the kids and I started right on the penguins with Mr. Popper’s Penguins. Again I am going to do the resource page at the end! This was Emanuel’s suggestion, he has always loved penguins best. We had some worksheets and a second book from the library… What’s in the Egg, Little Pip? by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman.

Cute little story

We had worksheets to accomplish…

Colour by words

Zander created his own little car ramp/jump for his remote control car.

Jump/ramp

This also marked the end of our reading program for the school year… one last round of pizzas!

YUM

Daddy also had a special picture waiting for him on his desk here at home at the end of the day!

Beautiful

And so our week has begun, as has April!
