I was looking for a perfect Easter but not too Eastery craft because I am not technically supposed to go crazy for holidays (but I LOVEEE them, so I get creative!). I found this ADORABLE one from A Cupcake for the Teacher.
Instead of writing about the Easter Bunny, I decided to do do a response to literature to my new favorite Kevin Henkes book. Each student picked their favorite part of the story, illustrated it and used invented spelling to describe it. I am head over heels for how these came out!
The bunny was running away from the cat
Rabbit (is) flying with butterflies
I also found this awesome video of Kevin Henkes creating this book. How precious are his beautiful illustrations? My kids were absolutely in love with this book... I can't wait to show them this clip of a "real" author-illustrator at work!
