Here goes - a last minute round up of some Easter resources ready and free for teachers to use in these last few days of term:
In addition to previous blogs and posts about Easter
, and some cracking Easter powerpoints
, don't forget there are some lovely make'n'do style activities in French over on http://www.vive-paques.com/paques.htm
. These work really well if you print them out and then give the instructions in French to groups along with a bilingual dictionary and challenge them to work it out and create the card/object. Also there are some nice recipes to follow as a class (display instructions on the whiteboard/projector and make altogether). Sadly the Caté Ouest site has been redeveloped and no longer has animated stories from the bible to access as in previous years. However there is a nice little Canadian animation at http://www.paques.pour-enfants.fr/dessins-animes/poule.htm
which raises some lovely topics to talk about in PSCHE or even SEAL activities.
Over on Twitter
, @valleseco (aka Clare Seccombe who manages the amazing Sunderland webiste) has been kindly sharing her tips for Easter and languages, among her recommendations are;
For German: http://www.ukgermanconnection.org/kids/easter
and for French and Spanish: Kaboose http://printables.kaboose.com/holidays/easter/word-searches/easter-...
For those hunting for the Talkabout Spanish and French Easter PowerPoints that make any display behave like an interactive whiteboard, they can be downloaded from here
. There is also at least one smartboard file at the same link.
Plenty of Easter resources to download over at the TES resources
website (but it's a shame there are som many negative comments on the forums these days).
Meanwhile looking for a more polylinguist Easter - Omniglot
lists a huge number of ways to say Happy Easter.
So enjoy your chockie eggs, as laid by the Easter bunny, in his bell, or whichever you intend to celebrate Easter. And for those of you of non-christian denomination, can you think of a nicer way to remember all those pagan fertility festivals than with chocolate?!
And last but not least - here is a simple French Easter PowerPoint made on YouTube
- can your children make their own?
