Well the children loved last week’s Pirate work so much that we actually kept lots of the continuous provision this week. However, we have also enjoyed a few Easter & spring-type activities (if you want to see what we got up to for spring last year, you can see it here). I suspect it is a bit ‘late’ to be sharing this with you as it is Easter Sunday tomorrow, but you’ll just have to bookmark it like my Chinese New Year post 😉
I shredded sheets of tissue paper before adding them to the basket with eggs & spring animals. They loved exploring this – & yes, the tissue did end up all over the floor!
I bought this grass ‘stuff’ from a pound shop last year & never got round to using it. Small world play in this tray.
Easter & Spring Maths Fun
Feeding the Sheep…
These ‘Shaun the Sheep’ bowls were given to me by one of our TAs a few weeks ago. I put them to one side thinking that they would be handy for this counting & simple number-combining activity…
Patterns on Eggs
We were much more elaborate with our egg patterning last year (see this post), but as we had so much else going on in the classroom, I wanted to keep it simple.
Sorting, Counting, Number Recognition and Pattern Making
I’ve had these little egg ‘counters’ for a year or so, but we used them for the first time here. I’ve shared the link for where I purchased them on my Facebook Page here 🙂
Simple Number Recognition and Counting
Counting and Simple Addition
I have some beautiful eggs, collected over the years, from craft shops mainly. They are lovely to feel & hold as well as look at…
Numbered egg cups & unfinished eggs…
Eggs on the Tree
Spring Blossom Trees on the Lightbox
We’ve often had twigs & green glass nuggets/pebbles, but I used pink & lilac nuggets this time, & also pink buttons…
Numbered Eggs in the Water Tray
– with colanders & slotted spoons…
You know how I love it! My parents have recently redone their bathrooms & this mirror was no longer needed. The oval shape reminded me of an egg & I thought it would be a nice base for some transient art…
Easter hols for us now… time for a break! 🙂
Thanks for reading!
