E is for "Easter" Resources

Easter is in just a few short days. I always like to incorporate some Easter studies into our lessons, as I'm sure many of us do. So this week at Blogging Through the Alphabet, E is for "Easter" Resources.

I have come across some great resources this year that I wanted to pass along. I don't know if we will do everything, but you might see something you like.

A free Celebrate Easter Lapbook from Scripture Adventures.

A free Easter H-O-P-E printable from Amanda Bennett.

A Resurrection Plant. You just water the "dead" plant before you go to bed on the night before Easter and in the morning "It's Alive!"

Every year we hunt and find Resurrection Eggs. I made my own one year, using this resource.

My kids also love to do Resurrection Cookies and we will do them this year as well.

Last year we made this Hill of Calvary. We loved it!

Jesus is our main focus this Easter season. But, we do also "do" the Easter Bunny fun, too. So, we will be reading any book we can get our hands on.

And we will be making a Live Easter Basket on our field trip to a green nursery today.

Have a wonderful and happy Easter with your children!

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday. He made an animal cell pizza ... and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ... He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!! I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Science Sunday ~ Hmmm ... Let Me Think About It!

This week in our study of the Human Body , Brynne moved on to the Nervous System . Our first stop was a Pamela Hill Nettleton book called, Think, Think, Think: Learning About Your Brain . As part of our discussions about the brain , and the fact that it's the BOSS of the body, we discussed the importance of the spinal cord . We did a hands on spinal cord project by alternating gummy Life Savers and wagon wheel pasta on a pipe cleaner. We talked about why there was the "squishy" stuff in between the vertebra and how the back can bend and sway because of it. We completed "The Brynne" by adding the stomach, small intestine and large intestine, from our study last week of the Digestive System (although I just realized I have the large intestine coming out of the stomach, when the small intestine should be) and the brain and spinal cord. We are now done talking about the parts of the body and will conclude our study of the Human Body with a two-day unit


Eli's reading resource teacher shared a website with me yesterday that I would like to pass along. It's called ABCya . There are separate educational sections with fantastic games for ages kindergarten through 5th grade. I browsed the 2nd grade level, and it includes age-appropriate games about Letters, Numbers, Shapes, Geometry, Patterns, Mouse Manipulation, Art and Holiday games. There are lots and lots of fun and creative games for children to play. They are fun, but oh, so educational. Eli's favorite, in his short time playing it, was Create a Car . A lot of the games also have Apps available for purchase (99 cents for most of them) for the iPad and iPhone. I have been looking for another free website for games similar to Starfall , for some time. I think I have found it. I can feel confident having Eli and Brynne play these games.
