Easter has so many meanings for different people. For some it's a religious time of year and a day of commemoration and for others it's a time for some quality family time, chocolate eggs and a long weekend. 

Classrooms are a microcosm of society and, as such, if your class is anything like mine, it contains children from different faiths and cultural backgrounds. I don't like a seasonal celebration to slip by without discussing it, especially in the early years classroom where social studies discussions all year revolve around celebrations and commemorations. As such, I introduce the concept of Easter and how different people in the community either commemorate or celebrate this special time in an inclusive way by using recognisable symbols of chicks, eggs and rabbits in my materials. 

Easter is a great time for craft and this month I'm giving away a Free Easter Paper Chick Template (just click the link and download). He is super easy to make, but I recommend you use card stock rather than paper as he will be firmer this way and less prone to falling over!

Other Easter activities I like to include are Easter decorations with either this fantastic exploration of warm and cool colours (these look very impressive as a classroom wall display and are great for grades 2 - 6).

Younger grades always love a simple colouring activity and these Easter colouring sheets make a super fun and easy afternoon activity. Once decorated, cut them out and create a classroom wall display!

I love squeezing a seasonal theme into a regular classroom activity and at Easter I pull out these Easter Sight Word Bingo Cards. They are even editable! So with my levelled literacy rotations, I can create custom bingo cards that will help students address their learning needs with each play of the game.

Maths Problem Solving is also a fun way to squeeze in some real-world problems into problem solving tasks. Students really relate to everyday problems and solving them can be fun with these part part, whole and number line activities which you can find in the Easter Pack along with some other useful classroom Easter activities.
