Easter Bunny Application (Writing Activity)

Happy Easter, everyone! As I was making this page, I couldn’t help but smile thinking of all the silly things kids would write on an application to be the Easter Bunny! This will definitely be a fun Easter writing prompt for kids!

Spring Word Cloud (Sort)

Spring word cloudWord clouds are fun. So why not use them in your classroom!? This page lists a bunch of spring-themed words in cloud form. Kids should color each word a specific color based on its part of speech.

Spring Color By Number Worksheet

Spring color by number STICKERThis is one of my spring color by number pages. It uses simple addition and subtraction, so it’d be good for kindergarten or (maybe struggling first graders). The kids color sections of the picture based on the answer to the question.

Bunny Hat Craft for Kids

This craft made me laugh out loud when I saw the picture. Naturally, I had to share it with you. This bunny hat craft is very simple so children as young as preschool could make it with help. There’s even a nice tutorial at Busy Bee Kids Crafts. Enjoy!

Spring Story Starter (with planning page)

Spring story starter STICKERThis picture was too cute not to use. So I turned it into a story starter for spring. Have your students review the parts of a story and then plan each part of their story (using the attached planning page) before they get to work on any of their drafts. Once they’ve had a peer edit it, and they’ve written their final draft, they can color the large version of the picture and display it with their final piece. Super fun, and super cute. What’s not to love!?

YahnooChickChick, A Chick-Chick Who Can Yodel

Here’s another Easter/spring folk song from my childhood that took me forever to recover. I couldn’t find a video that has the music, so I’ll keep on the look out for one. So make up your own tune, or just read it and chuckle.

YahnooChickChick

I know a baby chick-chick
On a mountain top
When he starts to yodel
He never ever stops.

Who’s that baby chick-chick
So happy hooray
Who loves to sing and yodel
While walking on his way?

It’s Yah-noo-chick-chick is a
Chick-chick- chick,
A chick-chick who can yodel!

Yah-noo-chick-chick is a
Chick-chick- chick,
A chick-chick who can yodel!

When you hear his song,
“Yo-de-lee-o”
Sing along: “Yo-de-lee-o”
And you can see it’s fun to be
A chick-chick who can yodel!
