Easter and Noah's Ark

Last week we were learning about animals and in our art center both of the kindergarten classes made a paper cut animal. CAN I TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE PAPERCUT!! I preassigned all animals and made sure that with ALL of my 26 students all of the letters of the alphabet were represented. Can you spy the nurse shark and quail? ha.  
I partnered with the other kindergarten classroom so that we would have 2 of every animal.  Do you see where I am going??? This week we made an ark symbolizing Noah's Ark.  We just finished it.  Isn't it adorable?

You can see there is writing on the sides. We wrote about the Bible story. 
I just LOVED how it came out.

This week we focused on Easter. We experimented with peeps in science, wrote about our Easter traditions in writing, and completed many art projects. 

The students enjoyed coloring Easter eggs the most.  It always surprises me that so many of my students have never colored Easter eggs before. :( 

We voted the striped eggs as our favorite!  
We placed a rubber band around them before we dyed them. :)

Lastly, here are some of our projects completed during our literacy and developmental centers. 

In my supported writing center students created the writing for this bunny rabbit.  SWBAT (students will be able to) write about their Easter traditions.

 Each day during Lent students wrote a prayer on a strip.  I collected them, hung them on a brown cross that they made on Ash Wednesday (with a push pin).  This week we made the purple cross and added the pictures together in as a whole group. On Thursday students were able to take these collections of prayers home and share their petitions with their family for Easter.

 I call this project Ray Crosses.  I saw an idea I think in a mailbox a while back.  It is absolutely beautiful.  I have my kinders cut out a pre traced cross on card stock, outline it with pastels, and then rub the cross on a piece of large white construction paper.

I hope everyone has a blessed Easter.

Until next time...
