Easter Bunny Craftivity (Common Core)


This craftivity includes templates for a bunny peek over, two picture book suggestions, and a choice of three writing activities aligned to the Common Core.

Picture book: The Easter Egg by Jan Brett
1. Opinion: Do you think the Easter Bunny picked the best egg? W1.1
2. Text-to-Text: How did The Easter Egg remind you of Horton Hatches the Egg? RL1.9

Picture Book: If I Were the Easter Bunny by Louise Gardner
3. Narrative: Students write what they would do if they were the Easter Bunny. W1.3

 I like to use scrapbook paper for the bows to kick the cuteness up a notch.
 The kids love making the cheeks by rubbing pink chalk on a cotton ball and then rubbing the cotton ball in a circle. Apparently eyelashes also a important. ;-)

FREEBIES for March 2nd!

Seuss week is so much fun. One day to celebrate Dr. Seuss is just not enough!

It is interesting to see my progression as I got more advanced with my computer skills.

NYC Envy and Book Clubs

We have this week off school. My two high school boys went on a school performing arts trip to New York City leaving my husband and I at home. We decided we'd take advantage of the extra date nights and try some new restaurants. I am pretty jealous though. My kids are seeing amazing shows and having workshops with cast members. So far they have seen Once on This Island, The Play That Goes Wrong, The Amateurs, Anastasia, Come From Away, Puffs, and Wicked. Not to mention going to museums, NBC, ice skating. I am turning green. Right this minute they are at a dance workshop with a Hamilton cast member!
California kids experiencing weather!
To distract myself from my envy, I have been finishing up some old projects. Here are some book club packets that I have been meaning to post.  I'm glad so many of you find them useful! I'd love to give them away so leave me a comment with your email and I'll pick two winners to send to. Click HERE to see more detail.

Do you get a week off in February? I hear some places call it ski week but not around here.
