Easter Lapbook - Part 2

Easter Activities and Printables for KindergartenI {Kayla} teach a pre-k class at my church on Wednesday nights and, as the Easter holiday approaches, my kiddos have been working on a lapbook to take home and share with their families. [The curriculum had us working through the Easter story for four weeks, spreading lessons a little thin, and I needed something to supplement the activities in order to keep my 5-year-olds engaged!] Containing a mixture of printables that I found online and resources that I made myself, I think my little learners are going to have a fun and colorful way to recount the amazing story of Easter – this year and in the years to come! Not to mention, under the guise of fun art projects and activities, they strengthened handwriting skills, early reading skills, color recognition, and more!

Here's a breakdown of the next two sections...

The Empty Tomb

Christian Easter Printables and Kindergarten Lesson Plan

Having been a fan of Catholic Icing and Lacy's amazing printables for quite a while, I was thrilled when I stumbled across her Easter paper roll characters/setting printables! I've used her nativity set the past two years to tell the Christmas story and couldn't wait to see what her resurrection set included. I wasn't disappointed and was able to tweak her tomb printable to fit our lapbook! (I say 'tweak', but we simply attached the printable to a flat surface instead of a three-dimensional tissue box!)

Fully assembled, the kiddos loved that they could open and close the tomb and they had a great time with the tracer because they got to use colorful gel pens!

The Road to Emmaus

Christian Easter Kindergarten Lesson Plan

My pre-k kiddos couldn't believe that Jesus' friends could walk with Jesus for so long and not know that it was Him! Evidently, Jesus' friends needed a little help 'seeing' their travel companion more 'clearly' and after a little magnifying glass fun, we worked on this awesome printable created by Amy (Amy's Free Ideas) as a fun reminder of Jesus' early resurrection appearance!

Since my kiddos had been having a great time with the tracers, I decided to capitalize on their enthusiasm, expanding the activity to create more of a challenge. This was the most I'd ever had my kiddos trace at one time and the letters were definitely smaller than they had previously encountered, but they were troopers and had a great time trading/sharing gel pens with friends along the way. I realized too late that the tracer didn't actually make it clear what story we had been learning about. I knew my 5-year-olds were going to have a hard time remembering the town of Emmaus and, while parents may guess what the pop-up depicted, I decided to have my kiddos add a title in order to help clarify.
