chick {clue} writing.

You can't go the week before spring break without creating some sort of Easter egg can you?!  I certainly can't!

We dyed eggs this year using Kool-Aid {so much nicer to smell than vinegar!} thanks to Jen Renee.
And we made these cute little chickies with construction paper.  They're similar to the ones we made last year but I added a writing piece.  We've been talking about descriptive language and how it can be like a clue to explain what you're thinking of without really saying it directly so I figured we'd play a little guessing game with people walking by!
Instead of hanging writing and artwork together, I mixed them all up and hug it willy-nilly like.  So if you're looking for a particular child's chick, you'll just have to read their clues to find it!  ;)
 Tip: use a loofah to paint feather-esque prints.
Here's your copy!
P.S. I left with 18 babies today {ah!} but have a feeling there will only be 17 when I go in tomorrow.  Is it bad to pray for a quick release or healing for a chicken?!

Happy Tuesday Cool Chicks!  {yuk yuk yuk...}

  2. I totally love dyeing the eggs with Kool-Aid! You know I'm totally into things that smell great. :) I just made my kids yellow lemon Play Doh for spring after doing green mint Play Doh for St. Patrick's Day. You are the coolest!

  4. I love your eggs with the chick popping out. I hope you don't mind - I used your ideas with my students and blogged about it here (http://bigideaslittlelearners.blogspot.com/2012/04/spring-eggs.html)

    Thanks for posting such a cute project! :)

  5. Love the pic of you and your chick. The second graders at my school got to hatch chicks in their room this year. Love your blog!
