How do you celebrate spring?
School end parties?
Easter Egg hunts?
A little bit of all?
Easter egg hunts are like all hide and seek games a huge favorite for kids.
However in English class we need to be careful that they do not end up in speechless sessions.
Here are two activities we enjoyed a lot this year:
1. A Flipgrid Easter Egg Hunt.
I hid the eggs in my house, and asked the kids via Flipgrid, where they guess the eggs are. They watched this video at home and thought of the answer. Then they took a video with their guesses. Great presentations with lots of language.
A real egg hunt, with a twist:
I made a simple sketch of a landscape with trees, grass, flowers...(all items the kids could read at this stage)
Then I wrote slips of paper with sentences like:
Ten eggs under the tree.
A red egg in the tent.
I put all of these slips into a plastic easter egg each, and hid them outside all over the space. Ready go and in groups the kids were searching for eggs, reading, running back and forth to draw what they had read.
What are your favorite easter egg hunts?
