Easter bunnies and addition rainbows

  
Another good week in our classroom. We had Open House so a lots of projects were going on. We drew Easter bunnies and introduced addition with regrouping.
My students understood the regrouping concept very fast so I moved on with the practice.
We used these colorful rainbows to review at the end of the week and they loved them. 

Each student got 7 paper strips. Once the addition is solved they out them in order from greatest to least.

You will notice that I have “cleaned” the clouds because they had written their names. But they looked colorful as they used markers and trace each letter with a different color.

If you want to use the activity click  HERE to download it. 
Print each page on a different color. Each page  has 5 addition lines. So if you had 15 students, I know I am too lucky, you would need to print each color page just 3 times.  And then one cloud for each kid.

We also did our Easter bunnies. This year I went with a super easy pattern. 
After mixing the colors they drew straight horizontal lines on a paper (see picture in the beginning of the post). Then I drew on the blackboard the steps and they created the masterpieces on their own.

  3. What kind of paint did you use? I love the pastel quality.

  4. Thank you, girls! I used regular tempera paint, but we added white to make softer colors.
