Easter Cutting Strips
I made a set of Easter themed cutting strips for the children to work on their scissor and fine motor skills. I printed them on regular paper and cut the strips out. The children cut along the lines on each strip. I have included both black and white and color cutting strips.

The free membership printable this week is Bunny Letter Match for letter recognition and review.. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I set the bunnies out in one pile and the eggs out in another. The children pick a bunny and then found the egg with the same letter and clipped them together with a large plastic paper clip. Both upper and lowercase letters are included.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday March 18th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added Bunny Number Match.

The free membership printable this week is a bunny color file folder which is great for color recognition and review. I printed all the patterns on cardstock paper and glued the bunny sheets inside a file folder. I then cut the color circles out and laminated them.
I attached self-adhesive magnets to the back of the color circles and set them out along with the bunny file folder. If you do not have a file folder you can always tape two pieces of construction or cardstock paper together.
In this activity children pick a color circle and place on the blank circle of the bunny with the same color. Play continues until all colors have been match. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday March 20th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where the bunny shape tracing is also located.
The free membership printable this week is a bunny alphabet match which is great for letter recognition and review. I printed all the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I mixed the letter circles up and set them out along with bunny mat. I used both
uppercase and lower case letters but you can use only uppercase or only lowercase letters.
In this activity children pick a letter circle and place it in the blank circle on the bunny on the left side of the mat. They then find the matching letter circle and place it in the blank circle in the bunny on the right. Play continues until all letters have been matched.

I put together an Easter egg letter hunt for the children to do today. I took address labels and wrote four letters each on them. I then cut the labels and put on on each plastic egg. Even though it was really cold outside I decided to hide the eggs outside so the children could run around and explore more.
The children searched for the eggs and were told they could only pick up one at a time and bring it back to me to put in our egg bowl. When they picked up an egg they looked to see what letter it was.
If it was a letter they could identify they brought it to me and told me the letter and then put the egg in the bowl. If was not a letter they could read then they left the egg where they found it and searched for another egg with a different letter.
To ensure that everyone could find and put the eggs in the bowl I searched with some of the children who seemed to be having some problems identifying letters. When they showed me the eggs we worked on the what they thought the letters were.
We had a lot of fun searching for our eggs and it was a great way to end the week. I realize that this post may be a bit late for some of you who did not have class today but save the idea for next year ... your students will enjoy it!!
I set up a plastic Easter egg color match for the children to work on their math and fine motor skills. I put twelve plastic eggs (the bottom halves) in a muffin tin and put matching colored buttons in a bowl.
I also set out jumbo tweezers as an option for the children to use. In this activity children put the buttons in the same colored plastic eggs that were in the muffin tin.
Once the children were done putting the buttons in the eggs they did a visual estimate of which one had the most and which one had the least. They then counted how many buttons were in each egg. If you do not have or do not want to use buttons you can also use pom poms for this activity.
