1 More Day!

So, we only have 1 more day until we are out for spring break and I think the kids are just as ready as I am. We all need a little break! I am hoping the weather cooperates...it's only 60 degrees here, which is cold for us southern girls!

We've been busy doing more Easter activities this week...

We read The Biggest Easter Basket Ever and discussed the beginning, middle, and end of the story. The kids all drew their favorite part and we decided where it happened in the story. We also did a little individual story map. This is still a little tricky for us right now, but I was pleased with the progress we've made!

We also read The Easter Bunny is Missing. To begin, I showed them just the title page and we made predictions about where we thought the Easter Bunny was. Then, we read the story and went back and sequenced the animals who tried to fill in for him as well as discussed why they were not a good choice. Then we did our own sequencing page.

This activity is similar to the activities in my sequencing packs, so I decided to make it a freebie on TpT to give you an idea of what the sequencing packs are like. You can download it for free here :)

In math, we've been doing some activities from my good friend Deeanna's new Easter pack {click here}.
Yesterday, we worked on subtraction story problems with the Easter Bunny and carrots. We worked on the promethean board first, then used manipulatives to work some problems together.

Thank you Squirrels for the inspiration to do math on our bellies!
 If you're still needing some Easter activities, here are 2 graphing freebies from last year:


 If you need some centers, you can get my Easter centers by clicking the picture below.
Or, if you need some non-holiday centers, you can get my Spring pack...


I would love to give these packs to 2 lucky followers...leave me a comment telling me what you did or are doing for Spring Break! :) I'm off to bake a bunny cake for our party!

  1. We have one more day until Spring Break, too! I wasn't sure if we were going to make it or not. LOL I have a massive toothache, so on my first day of break I will be going to the dentist :( BOOOO! hopefully, I will be all healed up to go back in April.
    Thanks for sharing your hard work with us!

  2. We still have two weeks until Spring Break! Unfortunately, I have a couple of appointments lined up and then I have some fun things planned like reading some books, blogging, and of course shopping! Can't wait! Also, I hope to go to Charleston for the weekend! Thanks for sharing all of your ideas!

  6. we have 6 more days until Spring Break and I CANNOT wait! We ALL need a break in room 209 and I too hope the weather gets nicer. It was a whopping 40 today ... in Virginia! We never get snow and here it is on the second day of Spring and we have flurries. I can't wait to just lounge around in pjs all day during break. I'd love to use these activities next week before we all leave.

    thanks, Lisa

  12. One more week until Spring Break! Nothing exciting planned. First day of vacation will be dentist appts, and I have an MRI for shoulder pain I've had. What joy! Rest of the week will be spent working on my online classes for my reading endorsement. I'll try to work in some shopping with my daughter. Love to read about your fun kindergarten days! The Easter books look great!

The first thing I will do is sleep and then I will continue to pin like crazy from Pintrest since it is my first year in first grade after 10 yrs in third and I need center activities. I love your stuff! Such cute ideas.

  42. My spring break is not for another month. I can;t even think about what I will be doing then. That is so far away and the students really need a break sooner than later. The winter blues are set in and I hope that the groundhog's prediction of early spring come true, but I doubt it, as the MA version of the groundhog predicted 6 more weeks of winter.
    Sick of snow days and anticipating spring. I would love to win your spring center package.

  47. Oh my goodness, we totally were stuck indoors Spring Break! :( My 8 year old broke her wrist while roller blading at the local skate place and was under orders not to do anything active, lest she fall again! We'll make up for it, though! My little sister is coming (Yay, Aunt Rachel!) and they'll have a blast! I'm excited to open the windows and get some gardening done, maybe read that book I keep trying to read! :) twicethegreenage@hotmail.com

  48. We were so busy on our spring break! We visited Grandma for a few days, went to the zoo, had a playdate with some friends that moved to a new school, went bowling.... AND we are planning on hitting the pottery studio and the aquarium tomorrow since the weather is not cooperating and it has been rainy and cold! Then it is back to school on Monday. Enjoy your break next week!!!
