Jan Brett's The Easter Egg

We read Jan Brett's new book, The Easter Egg. Then we talked about Hoppi, the rabbit's, character. He talked about choices he made and the way he acted in the story. We used words like responsible, trustworthy, loyal, faithful, and proud. We made connections to the book, Horton Hatches the Egg, a book we read a few weeks ago at story time with Ms. Tricoli.

Then we wrote about it. The rabbits are from TLC Lessons.

We decorated eggs using a crayon resist.

After reading The Easter Egg, a teammate did this activity with her class.

Your writing prompt is adorable! The large crayon resist and your teammates ideas are great follow up too. Thanks for sharing. I found you from the Virtual Book Club for The Easter Egg. We used the story to take a moment and talk about selfless acts of kindness.

Is there a way to get a pdf copy of your writing prompt paper?
