2. Look Who's Hatching!
Donna Walker/Tammy Mcnabb Foxworth, MS Grade 1
Give the boys a blue egg and the girls a pink one. With the goal of the students working on sentence structure, have the students write at least 4 sentences on the bottom of the egg describing one thing they look forward to about Spring. After they finish decorating their eggs, have the students use scissors to cut the top 1/3 of the egg off in a zig zag pattern. Have the students punch a hole in the side of the egg and connect it back together with brads. Help the students glue their photo inside the hatching egg. Use bright yellow paper as a background and a border of your choice. Lastly, place green grass under the eggs.

1. Hop into “Egg”cellent Study Habits
Cover the bulletin board with blue and green fabric. Use blue for the sky and green for the grass. Create an Easter basket out of poster board or construction paper. Next, each child can create and decorate a large Easter egg made from construction paper and embellishments of their choice. Discuss and brainstorm great study habits. Then ask children which study habit has helped them the most. Children can write their names and their favorite study habit on a blank index card. Secure the index card to the Easter egg. Attach the bunny to the bulletin board and attach the eggs scattered around the grass.
