Eggs, Eggs, jelly beans

The question of the day "Are we having an egg hunt today??  Why of course, but we need to settle down and get a few things done first. 
First we matched upper case to lower case with the plastic eggs.  That was fun for everyone! Then we told the story of the Savior, His baptism, feeding the 5,000, the entry into Jerusalem, the death on the Cross, and the resurrection.  I hope this story is told in their homes.  That is the true meaning of Easter.  HE LIVES!!

 Now we are going over three letter words pointing out that there has to be a vowel  in the middle to make these words.  Sounding out the words will help them to better recognize the sight words and every day words
Then we knew if we were to get our "show and tell" activity done, we needed to take this time
Ivy showed her cute little puppy
Brigham brought this hard plastic jet and a "gem" that he found

Brook showed us her flip flops that were put into the garage and almost forgotten.  But, she says this is one of her favorite pairs of shoes
Avery showed us a Japanese lantern she and her friends made
  Remember the eggs that we put into the vinegar??  Well, the shell had dissolved, and each of the children were given a chance to hold and feel it, with directions not to squeeze or drop it.  Then the big splash!!, Yup, a little too tight a squeeze showed us that the eggs had not been in the vinegar long enough, so the second one went back into the jar for a few more days.

 Guess who got "egg on his face"  so to speak?
We get ready for the "hunt 

To the back yard and "away we go"   They were each given a plastic bowl to collect the eggs, then were told to find only one particular color, bring it back to the center of the yard and place the eggs into their plastic bag.  When that was done, they were then given another color and it proceeded that way til all the eggs were found.

Avery's Mom came to help us out today!! What a fun way to visit
 We looked through the jelly beans and put them into colors
 Sammy looked through his basket to see what he got

Ninety eggs in the basket and lots of fun gathering them, getting out the candies, counting them, and just a fun time
Happy Easter to all
