After reading about Babushka and her beautiful eggs, we made our own!
We started with a plain circle and drew shapes and squiggles. Then we colored each shape or space a different color. We tried not to have two touching spaces be the same color.
|Viola! A circle becomes an egg...like magic!|
|These cuties wanted to make a second "magic egg" and work together!|
This is not a jelly bean! It's a _________.We also did a little writing with Jelly Bean shapes! I love this writing assignment and my firsties did, too. We started with jelly bean shape tracers and a variety of color choices. Each child chose a color for his or her jelly bean and traced and cut out the shape.
Then we had to decide what our jelly bean, wasn't! Each child created a picture using the shape and completed the frame sentence:
This is not a jelly bean! It's a _________.
|This is not a jelly bean. It's a shoe.|
|This is not a jelly bean. It's a cat.|
And, my personal favorite....
|This is not a jelly bean. This is Mario!|
Have a great Easter Weekend!
