Time Capsule Tuesday: Easter 2007



A few more things I wanted to share from our Pre-K Easter unit...


This was the table display I put together at the beginning of Holy Week.I used to regularly set these up at the beginning of each unit study. This past year I've been more sporadic with them, but they're something I want to do more often. The children are always excited when they come down in the morning and see the books and other things that we'll be exploring during our study.



Some of our activities included:
-estimating the number of jellybeans in the jar
-filling plastic eggs with correct numbers of jelly beans - each egg was labeled with a number.
-read Benjamin's Box each day as we opened our Resurrection eggs
-read The Parable of the Lily and used a lot of the ideas from the Homeschool Share unit for this title
-read The Tale of Three Trees (There is a brand new Homeschool Share unit and lapbook for this one.)

Thanks for looking back through these past Easter plans and pictures with me. I hope that you've found something new to read or do with your little ones this year.

Please leave a comment if you have any favorite Easter books or activities you'd like to share. I'm always looking for new things to do with my gang!
