Lots of fun and egg-citing ideas! Thank you!
I love your egg-stra cute ideas, but I couldn't find the file to download the fun preposition pages. I'd love to have them for my class of thirdsters. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
Wow! So many new ways to use plastic eggs in meaningful ways.
That looks egg-stremely fun! =)Emily @ Second Grade Silliness
Fantastic ideas!!! I can't wait to review for our reading test using the "Eggstra Thick Questions"! Thanks!Mrs. Heeren's Happenings
WOW! How egg-cellent! LOVE the idea of egging the principal - my students would find this very egg-citing and egg-gaging. ;) So many great ideas - thank-you for sharing!!!JenRunde's Room
Love, love, love these ideas! I want to use them all this week! Could you check the link for the preposition pages though? I can't seem to find it/get it to work! Thanks for all your wonderful work!
Hello! The link to the Hunting for Prepositions activity is now all set. Thanks Kristy and The Lily Pad for pointing this out to us!! :)
I have never commented on a blog before but I felt compelled to tell you this is absolutely wonderful! As a 4th grade teacher, I've never really been one for holidays but this was a very persuasive post! :) I will definitely be using some of these ideas this Thursday. Thanks again!
Great EGG ideas!JenniferFirst Grade Blue SKies
I LOVE the Eggstra Thick Questions activity! You saved me from lots of time and stress trying to plan something "Springy/Eastery" for my students that was still "rigorous",and strategy-focused learning. Thank you, thank you!! :)
love these activities!! your pack is in my cart!! I just wish I had more time to do all these great ideas!!
Love the egging the administrators idea! One of ours actually sent your blog to the whole staff today for Easter ideas--I think it was a hint maybe they are expecting something...:) Very creative ideas you are sharing, will definitely follow!NotJustChild'sPlay
OK - I must have missed the post. What is a THICK question?!! :D
I am in love with all of these ideas, especially the dressed up eggs and you have been egged. Too cute!AshleyLive2Learn
Kristy,I saw your question and thought maybe I could help. Not sure if there is a post here about those type of questions here. However, Beth Newingham, who is a FANTABULOUS Michigan teacher, has thick and thin question posters on her classroom website that I remembered when I saw this. Thick questions are think and search questions and thin questions have answers that are right there. Here's the link (http://hill.troy.k12.mi.us/staff/bnewingham/myweb3/thick_or_thin.htm) to check her out if you haven't already! She really is fab!AshleyLive2Learn
SO many egg-cellent ideas :) I like the idea of hiding the questions in the eggs. I'm going to have to try this one! Thanks for sharing.Come check out Room 114's giveaway - stories114.blogspot.comLisa
Ashley,Thank you so much! I had not found her site yet, and you're right - she's fab! I've downloaded the Thick and Thin Question posters and Thick question prompts and am ready to go!
I just had to comment AGAIN to thank you for these great ideas. My class did the "You've Been Egged" activity today and it was a huge hit! My principal (who is an amazingly wonderful person) has had a rough couple of weeks. Her dad had heart surgery and she's been worried about him, plus traveling back and forth to Sacramento (2 hours each way) to see him has taken its toll. She was so touched by all the sweet notes that my kiddos wrote to her! And you were right, my kiddos were so tickled by the egg-ceptionally funny words and had a great time making up their own! EGG-CELLENT!
Yay! We are so happy to hear that your sweet principal was touched by your student's letters. :)
We did the You've Been Egged to our AP and Principal yesterday - and they LOVED it! both the kids and admin!!THanks for the great idea!♥ Jen The Teacher's Cauldron
