I had a fun Easter class today. Here is the lesson plan, maybe you will find it useful, if you have anything to add, please let me know.

Dream English Easter Lesson

1. Warm up- I did fun with guitar, but you can teach hop, and clap your hands. This is good warm up for the Easter Song (see # 6)

2. Reading time- I read an Easter book Called “Where are Baby’s Easter Eggs” by Karen Katz. This is a really fun book for young students.

3. Make an Easter Egg- You could do this in many ways, but we made one big egg cut out with paper, and had the children color it, and decorate it with paper strips. I always review colors before letting the kids start the craft.

4. Counting Easter Eggs- We counted Easter Eggs, you could make eggs out of paper, etc. I used a simple counting game where the students close their eyes, then I set out the eggs. Next, I ask them to open their eyes and ask, “How many eggs?” We did this a few times then sang the Dream English Let’s Count from 1 to 10, which is a free download. I told the students that if they sing well, we would play a game!

5. Easter Egg Hunt- I asked the students to close their eyes and count to 10. Then I placed Easter Eggs around the room. After they opened their eyes, I said, “Ok, let’s find the Easter Eggs! Take two please”. I put some chocolate in the eggs, but this is of course optional. You could put stickers, or nothing. It’s up to you.

6. Dream English Happy Easter– First I reviewed the vocabulary from the song, using the great MES English Easter flashcards, then we sang the song. To download the Easter song for free, and for a link to the Free MES English flashcards click here.

So that’s about it. This took around 30 minutes, but could be shorter or longer depending on how many students, etc. I always explain everything we are doing in English, and ask the kids lots of questions as we go along. For example, “What color is this Easter Egg? How many are there? How many eggs did you find? ” etc.

Have a great lesson, and let me know how it goes!
