Chick Craft & An Egg Hunt

Hey Friends! One Spring Party stands between me and my Spring Break and I could squeal with excitement!! I absolutely love my job and I adore my class this year, but I am very excited to be spending my break in New York with my sister!!! 

We are working hard on making our classroom nice and springy! I wanted to share this cute little chick craft we made this week. It was easy and fun and looks so sweet hanging on our clothesline!

Here's what you need:
One 6"x4" yellow rectangle (body)
Two 6"x6" orange squares (wings)
Three 2"x2" orange squares (feet and beak)
Two 4"x1" orange rectangles (legs)

First, cut the corners off the yellow rectangle to make it round for the chick's body.
Then, trace your hands onto the orange squares and cut them out for the wings. Glue the wings onto the back of the chick's body.
Fold the orange rectangles like an accordion for the legs and glue them onto the chick's body. Cut out two feet and glue them to the legs.
Finally, fold the last orange square diagonally in half to make a beak. Glue down the beak and add some eyes.


In math centers, we went on an egg hunt for math problems! The kiddos loved using the little magnifying glasses to find the addition equations hidden in the eggs. You can grab this freebie in my TpT store!
{sorry for the awful glare!!}

And I just had to share this with you because it cracked me right up! We were working on building our short o words in the playdoh center today. One of my kids built the word "jog" then added "uthon" since we just had our Jog-a-thon a few weeks ago. Melt my heart!!! They are learning!
