Easter Activities!!

I am getting Spring Fever!!  It has been so nice here in the midwest, upper 80's today and hardly any wind.  I am so excited our KU Jayhawks beat Ohio last night and are in the championship finals Monday evening.  Go KU!!!  We are down to about 33 school days and I am getting pretty excited to spend the summer with my two girls, but there is still a lot that I need to get done with my kiddos.  I love Easter and all that goes with it. 

Here are some ideas you can use with your kids for review of compound words and math facts!

This first basket, kids are matching words to make compound words.

 This basket, kids will match an addition or subtraction sentence to the sum or difference.  You can really do anything with this and the kids will love it.

Here is the recording sheet for the math egg activity!
Some other ideas to use with those plastic eggs are:  synonym matching, antonym matching, or even send an egg home with each student and have them fill it with an item.  The kids have to guess what each kiddo brought by shaking it and making predictions.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!  We only have a four day week,  whoo-hoo!!  Anybody else have only four days this week??
