Otter Loves Easter is about Otter making and sharing dyed egg after he scarfs all of the candy the Easter Bunny brought him. Woven within the story is counting differently sized items, finding eggs in the egg hunt.
Roll and Color the Egg game
I have observed my students number recognition increase since I included a roll and color game center once a week. I also have them write the number once a week. We are now working on recognizing number 6 dots, and numeral. The dots also help as a common core tool, and both of my students will be attending standard K.
The reason I make so many themes is it’s my #1 effective tool for these skills, and the different themes keep it a game. It is easy to extend our literacy activity with adapting to a book we are reading.
The Pack Includes:
Page with Colored Key and a Page with Blank key to add colors to,
Page without Key, Key page with colors and Key Page without colors.
My students love this game and playing it, has been highly effective for their number recognition. We use a large foam die from the $1 store. If they roll a number that has already been colored, the turn moves to the next player. The first one to have the egg color is the winner.
Pack Pages include: Color page with Key, Color page with blank key (to be filled in by teacher), Color page with no key, Key page with Colors, Key page without colors.
This book doesn’t have a truck, but it IS about an Easter Egg Hunt. Betty’s siblings try to help her find eggs, but when she realizes she tells them she wants to do it HERSELF. She only finds one egg, becomes upset, her parents console her, she tries again and finds two more eggs. She decides its better to find three eggs by herself then a whole bucketful with help! She’s also kind of an active smarty pants and her siblings have quite real responses. Very Relatable and the current favorite book we are reading.
My Egg Truck Craft, was inspired by the blue farm truck printable, from Gluedtomycraftsblog.com

This is a great activity for those who really can’t stand getting paint on their hands. My sensory sensitive toddler enjoys finger printing. It provides a personal record, without handprint mess. It also provides a less formal, result oriented art process.

Here’s an Easter Truck Free Printable I printed out and placed in a $1 Store Frame. These make great gifts too! ( I used this to show students what we were making so they had an artsy idea- our mantra? “Does it need to be perfect?” NO!! 🙂
I can’t find the place I downloaded it from, from one of my numerous subscriptions, NOT on pinterest, NOT on google, NOT in my trash! I will add the link when I get the next email from my graphics subscriptions! SORRY but it gives you an idea of frugal fun! My town is SO small it doesn’t have a TARGET, (90 min away over the mountains), so I HAVE to be creative!
