This is one of my favorite lessons to teach. I like to teach this lesson during the week before Easter because my little ones are thinking a lot about eggs and jellybeans.
I purchased this big book from Scholastic years ago. Before I read the book I have my little ones create a web on animals that hatch from eggs. (Sorry I forgot to take a picture :( )
During small group time we work on this class book page. Each child cuts out the outer egg shell.
Then we fasten the egg shells to the book page and the children pick a creature for the page.
The children enjoy reading this book because it is a flap book.
