Lesson Plan: Easter


        HE IS RISEN

Our lesson plan this week focuses on Easter and the Christian reasons behind the celebration of Easter. Like I mentioned, Tot attends a private Christian school and it is a holiday that is near and dear to our family. But, I know this lesson plan isn't for everyone so while the majority centers around the biblical studies of Easter - I have included quite a few generic Easter activities and worksheets for you to use.

Next week, we're back to themes related to science (Tot's favorite thing right now) and we're focused on All About ME. We'll learn about the human body, our emotions, etc. Stay tuned for that lesson plan later this week!

Before I dive into all things Easter, here are a few things we've been utilizing that are really great resources and activities for little ones....

Bella Ballerina - they're now including multiple studios to choose from for streaming and really focusing on classes for all ages. They include special events (like meeting Elsa, Rapunzel, etc.) and really can help you knock out 45 mins of work while your little is twirling around nearby. They've uploaded a sample schedule for you to review, but honestly - I can't say enough about the service and the company as a whole. Every time I need to fill 30-45 mins to get something knocked out, I have her enter a class and VOILA. The streaming fee is $3 a day, but they've given me a special code to offer y'all.

Use code BUMBLEBEETOT for 30% off your streaming subscription

Visit Bella Ballerina for more information!

Homer - there are some days (like yesterday) where Mama just has to yell SNOW DAY even though it's 65 outside and school is canceled. Like how that works? But, I can't have her watching Disney+ all day so we've been utilizing the Homer App for days like yesterday. Is it the same as teaching her? No, but it's pretty darn close. She is loving the pathway learning and I can already see a difference in her pronunciation of certain words after only a few days. Won't work for every family, but we've loved it so far. Check it out here.

Eat KBC - Top Chef winner Kelsey Bernard Clark is hosting daily virtual cooking classes from her kitchen and filling the classes with all types of scrumptious goodies. She also has lots of classes geared for little ones and we're registered for her Thursday biscuit class for kids. I don't know who's more excited - me or Tot?!? The shrimp & grits class looks like a pretty solid date option as well. We can't wait for Thursday. For more details, visit here.

Franklin Party Stylist - this sweet company has ramped up their Princess and Super Hero appearances and they're so wonderful. We're planning to schedule another one for next week as a surprise for a few great weeks of school. From Elsa to Ariel, she provides a schedule each week for parents to choose from and it's as simple as messaging her on Instagram for a time slot to sign up for. Have a few littles you want to entertain? She'll do coloring parties and can FaceTime, Zoom etc. She sings with them, dances with them, just all the thing and it's the cutest. You can also purchase a gift card for any families you'd like to donate time with - any parents on the frontline who's littles could use a smile. Support this Mama and schedule an online call today!

Stone Tower Winery - how could I possibly provide a list of essentials without talking about the WINE. All the wine. Anyone else feel like they're plowing through bottles of wine like they're going out of style? I mean, I'm slightly worried a few Mama's here will help me drink our winery out of brut rose. But, I couldn't hold onto this secret for much longer...our winery is doing $5 FLAT RATE SHIPPING. Doesn't matter where you live, doesn't matter if you're a member. Everyone has access. They've put together some great packages for you as well (think tasting bottles etc.), and are providing weekly happy hours to join in on. We've been doing them weekly and can't gush enough about the tasting packages. Visit their site and the $5 shipping will automatically reflect in your total. Go already!

Jelly Bean Letter Recognition: Did this one by hand, but drew a quick jelly bean jar and each jelly bean has a letter written in it. Call out each of the letters like a letter bingo and have your little one place a jelly bean on every letter they get correct. We did this with uppercase letters, but can be done with lowercase letters and numbers too.
