Preschool Lesson Plans: Working the REAL Easter in to your Plans

This is irrelevant to many teachers, but it is what I am doing so I am going to post about it.

The theme for this week is Eggs, and Easter. We are sort of working on the letter E, but have also started the Hooked on Phonics for Preschool too. I'll let you know how it goes with that later.

Today we did our Resurrection Eggs that I found here. She has other Easter related activities and songs listed here.

Tonight we will be making eggs for supper. We will use this as a teachable moment in which we discuss how cooking changes the eggs, using eye hand coordination to scramble the eggs, and learn a sense of accomplishment when we eat what we created.

This week will end Saturday with an Egg Hunt. It is always good to mold your lesson plans around the events and experiences in your student's/ child's lives. This makes it all the more meaningful and relevant to their experience.
