Easter Read Alouds for the Classroom
It is almost time for Easter! It happens to be one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. Because there are so many amazing read alouds I wanted to share some of my favorite Easter Read Alouds for kids!
The stories in this set will make a great addition to your holiday books for your classroom!
First of all is the classic “There was an old lady who swallowed a chick”. The old lady is at it again and in this story she swallows a chick and a host of other fun Easter themed items. I wonder what is going to happen next! Kids love the rhyming text and funny illustrations!
Looking for Easter. This is such a fun loving story. It is the story of a little bunny with a big question? What is Easter? He takes a journey and asks some of his forest friends along the way. He figures out what Easter is and in the process makes a basket to give to a Robin for her new baby birds.
This is another great story about Marley and how he and the family are attending the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Marley is very excited as he spots the eggs but he has trouble getting them to his family before someone else does. He decides to make his own way and oh boy does he cause quite the mess!
Such a sweet and beautifully illustrated story. This book is a bout a little bunny named Hoppi, who wants to make the best egg ever to be able to help the Easter Bunny on Easter morning. Hoppi sets off and soon finds out it is harder than he thought it would be. He soon decides that he might not be able to make the “best egg” but he can make one that he is proud of.
Another great story is More Bunny Trouble. It is Easter time again, and there¹s more trouble in store for Ralph, the soccer-loving rabbit. Not only does he have to paint Easter eggs, but he has to watch his baby sister, too. When she wanders off, it is up to Ralph to find her before dark.
One spring morning, the Easter Bunny skips merrily along to deliver his colorful, hand-painted eggs. But the children tell him that it’s Mother’s Day, which can only mean one thing: HE SLEPT THROUGH EASTER! Nobody wants eggs on Mother’s Day, or on the Fourth of July — and especially not on Halloween.
It’s springtime! It’s Eastertime! The Holiday Mice are going on an egg hunt. Distracted by the beautiful sunny day, the littlest mouse is the only one who doesn’t find any eggs . . . until he stumbles upon a very special egg that turns out to be the best one of all. A sweet treat for beginning readers!
Finally The Easter Bunny’s Assistant. When the Easter Bunny decides to decorate eggs with the help of his friend Skunk, the two must learn to work together before the whole process goes awry.
