Do you do an Easter theme in your early childhood classroom? If you’re allowed, you can put some Easter theme activities in your lesson plans to help your pre-k, preschool and kindergarten students develop many different early learning math and literacy skills.
As your little learners participate in activities around a common theme, they will begin to develop important oral language, literacy, and vocabulary skills.
