What's in your sensory table . . . and a Easter freebie.

Here's that question again. . .what's in your sensory table?  I assume that many of you have eggs of some kind or other in you table in anticipation of Easter.  But I'm always curious what you're doing with those lovely pastel plastic play things.

Makes you want to jump right in and play doesn't it?

I have students putting the onset and rime together to make really and nonsense words.  Of course there's a cute little sheet that I offer them to record their findings.

They quickly discover that the two ends do not necessarily have to be the same color to make a real word.  In anycase, it's engaging and makes learning fun. 

Because I am off for Spring Vacation next week, our school misses that entire pre-Easter week of activities and hoopla.  So I'm cramming all those fun Easter centers and activities in this week.  Yikes!

My students are LOVING anything that has to do with writing the room.  That's the good news!  Bad news . . . I'm about 3 clipboards short of having enough and I know what I'll be making over spring break. 

It's worth it though.  They love moving around, they are engaged and I love how independent they have become.  If you want to try out some fun Easter write the room math and cvc/ccvc/cvcc activities, check out my TpT  or Teachers Notebook stores.  I have some freebies there too.

Including this new one . . .Please feel free to snatch it up by clicking on the picture below and if you decide to use it, please do me a favor and consider following my blog if you don't already or Like-ing my A Differentiated Kindergarten Facebook page.  It's the quickest way to find out when I list new freebies and activities.


  1. I have easter grass and plastic eggs with letter tiles in them. The students have to put the letters in order to create a sight word. I love the idea of writing on them and having students put them together to make words. I will so be doing that tomorrow! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Pinned this for TBA because I love it!

  3. You have a ton of great ideas for Easter activities! This morning I did an egg hunt and had sight words stuffed in each egg. Later this week I am going to do another egg hunt and have beans in each egg and the kids have to count the beans and then the kids will hide the eggs and do it again. Thanks for sharing your ideas:)

    We are ALL Special!

  4. I wish you still were offering your Easter write the room sheets. They look great!

  5. I can't seem to find your Easter write the room freebie in your TPT store. Am I looking in the wrong place?
