The Colors of Easter Jelly Bean Poem Christian Activities, Printable Book
The Colors of Easter Poem is one of my favorite ways to relate the story of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus to the colors of jelly beans. Students always love it! This packet includes a printable, student-made book of the poem, an around the room activity, an art activity, and classroom display.
In the around the room activity students will review and reinforce the symbols for each jelly bean color as well as the order of events in the poem. They also work on recognizing, reading, and writing color words, counting, matching, and writing numbers.
When creating their student-made books students will read and review the poem, trace the color words, and color the jelly beans the appropriate colors. This gives the students a keepsake and reminder of the poem and its story.
The classroom display will give students a colorful visual to remind them of The Colors of Easter poem. Students paint jelly beans using condensed milk paint which gives them a shiny, glossy appearance resembling real jelly beans. These jelly beans are then hung around a printable version of the poem.
Perfect for Christian schools, Sunday school programs, CCD, homeschool, or parents.
