Easter is another opportunity to create an egg shape poem and write in describing words associated with Easter.
1. Here is a site online with Easter poems and songs you may like to use.
2. Another engaging idea would be to show the students the trailer to the recently released movie “Peter Rabbit”. I think this will be a very popular Easter or April school holidays outing for families.
Don’t forget to mention Beatrix Potter the original famous author of the Peter Rabbit series of books.
3. And one more idea an oldie but a goodie. Dye real eggs (check re egg allergies first) as a classroom activity. Remembering through all these activities to reinforce the describing words for Easter that can be used in poems the children write.
Here is a chart of natural dyes to use with real eggs.

Cheers and Happy Easter
