Physical movement improves academics social-emotional well-being (NEAToday). 

I’m sure you can picture it now; the kiddos are pretending to have floppy ears as they hop around, and reach down to pick up Easter eggs. 

This will increase their mood, because they are getting the opportunity to act silly and have fun.

 Then, they will be excited as you sit them down to do a mini-lesson and a Build-a-Poem activity.

With the Easter Bunny poem, you could do mini lessons on rhyming and _op family words. 

When putting your kiddos into centers, you can have them complete the Easter Bunny Build a Poem

This is a pocket chart poem where the kiddos use large word cards to build the familiar poem.

5 Little Easter Eggs

Five little Easter eggs. Oh, I wish I had more.

Mommy ate the pink one, now there are four.

Four little Easter eggs hidden by me,

Daddy found this red one, now there are three.

Three little Easter eggs. Will they find the blue?

My sister ate the yellow one. Now there are two.

Two little Easter eggs. Oh, this is fun!

My brother ate the green one. Now there is one.

One little Easter egg. What color will it be?

Wait! Who ate the last one?

It wasn’t me!

To top it off, set out the 5 Little Easter Eggs Build a Poem as an interactive poetry center. 

They can use the word cards to build the poem in a pocket chart, or on the floor. 

This makes a great independent work station for the kiddos to work together to achieve a project (the poem).

As an incentive for finishing the poem, I let my kiddos recite the poem to the class when centers were over.
